Even after two gold medals as a head coach and one as an assistant, Mike Krzyzewski has been telling his players they will experience something as equally special Friday night.
“The opening ceremonies is a showcase for sport worldwide,” Krzyzewski said Thursday after Team USA’s introductory news conference at the Rio Games. “It’s a celebration of every sport, from every country, under one roof. It’s the most beautiful thing in the world, and it happens once every four years.
“I think there’s no greater honor and no greater day than tomorrow. For all these athletes.”
