Durant, Cousins: Playing for Coach K an Unexpected Treat


“He’s (Mike Krzyzewski) more of like a father figure slash mentor than he’s a coach,” (Kevin) Durant said. “On top of being a coach, when you have that combination, that makes for just an incredible leader.”

“I hate to say it [as a Kentucky guy],” Cousins offered, “but I really have enjoyed playin’ for K.”

Said Durant: “We were taught not to like Duke. I grew up in Maryland, so they used to always play each other, so we hated Duke. And I didn’t think that was my style of play, just from hearing from everybody [what Krzyzewski] was like.”
