Basketball - Olympics: Day 5

At the end of last year and over the summer, Coach K had a rough patch. He had a knee replaced right after the season ended, a hernia surgery and then two procedures on his left ankle in June.

It’d be enough to wear anyone out and that was all before the Olympics.

He says none of It was a big deal and that it had to be done and now he’s “rarin’ to go.”

Good inspiration for his various players who are recuperating as well.
