Coach K says Jeremy Lin is here to stay

Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski joined the show to talk about his season and more.

Coach K weighed in on Jeremy Lin, who he knew about because his former player Tommy Amaker coached him.

“I think Tommy¬† thought he had a chance,” Krzyzewski said. “But I don’t think anyone could have predicted this. Guys get better.”

Coach K thinks Lin is very good because he can extend his dribble and still probe the defense for opportunities. That’s the key for a Mike D’Antoni offense.

“The kid is for real,” Coach K said. “Everybody should give him credit. This isn’t the hula hoop. This kid is going to be good for a long time.”

Krzyzewski also weighed in on Austin Rivers, who made big game-winner last week. “The thing his he wanted the ball all season,” Coach K said. “He didn’t deserve the ball all of the season.”
