Here’s a cool bit from David Thompson of the Fayetteville Observer on Jordan Goldwire. It’s in Q&A form and the questions focus on his Duke career, his relationships here and his choice for Duke’s next coach.

There is also this great story that gives some insight into how Coach K thinks differently than most coaches:

“There have been a lot of special moments between me and him, but my favorite game moment was my freshman year, I think we were playing Rhode Island in a tournament, and for some reason, Trevon Duval and Wendell Carter got into it about something. They were arguing all the way to the bench, and everybody was trying to calm them down, and I remember Coach K being like ‘stop!’ to the guys on the bench. He yelled at Trevon and Wendell, ‘I love your guys’ passion.’ They were arguing, but he liked the fact that they were arguing because they were so into the game. I’ll never forget that.”
