Well this is pretty cool: Coach K and Michael Phelps had a get together to discuss what constitutes greatness.

A lot of it is obviously about Phelps, one of the great winners in sports history. Not that Coach K isn’t as well - his achievements are staggering - but Phelps has enough Olympic gold to restock Fort Knox. During the Olympics, we saw somewhere that he broke a 2,000 year old record for most Olympic wins. Stop and think about that.
