“America’s Point Guard” And Coach K

If he can put a full court press on the Corona Virus then yes, he’s America’s point guard.

White House Coronavirus Task Force Holds Daily Briefing
WASHINGTON, DC - APRIL 01: Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases listens as U.S. President Donald Trump speaks from the press briefing room with members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force April 1, 2020 in Washington, DC. After announcing yesterday that COVID-19 could kill between 100,000 and 240,000 Americans, the Trump administration is also contending with the economic effects of the outbreak as the stock market continues to fall, businesses remain closed, and companies lay off and furlough employees.

As most of you know, Coach K has a radio show on SiriusXM called Basketball and Beyond. He’s a surprisingly good interviewer and gets a lot of interesting guests on the show and occasionally some who are pretty important.

This is one of those.

Dr. Anthony Fauci is on a very recent episode and it’s streaming free. Here’s what K’s broadcast partner Dave Sims said about it:

America’s Point Guard, Dr. Anthony Fauci, guests on “Basketball & Beyond w/Coach K” tonight at 6ET, Sirius ESPNU Radio Ch84. A must listen. It’s free too! Through May 15, go to

We’re honestly not sure if that means tonight or last night but either way it’ll certainly be available after 6:00 Thursday so we recommend listening. As you may recall, we have a lot of respect for Mike Krzyzewski’s idiosyncratic approach to things and he’s likely to ask some questions in some ways that probably haven’t occurred to most of us so it’s likely to be worth the time.
