A Cool Story

As it happens, a high school coach from Boulder City, Nevada, named John Balistere was working at the spa at the Mirage when Coach K was visiting. The two ended up chatting hoops, and Balistere was invited to work Coach K's camp, which he's done for almost a decade now. He's got deep ties to the program and vice-versa - some of his kids got the thrill of a lifetime when they were ballboys for the national team during the Vegas stage of things. Very cool.
