Bob Knight Watches Coach K’s Record Victory Like a Boss

Seems like everybody’s making a big deal about Bob Knight crushing a beer (if that’s what it is, could be iced tea, I guess) during the broadcast of the game that Coach K passed him with career win number 903. I won’t. What I do love is the look on Dan Shulman’s face. The “Oh boy, Knight has no idea the cameras are on him right now” face look.

NEW YORK — Cheek to cheek, Mike Krzyzewski and Bob Knight hugged, a player and his coach celebrating a big win — one it’s safe to say might never happen again in college basketball.

The man known simply as “Coach K” became Division I’s winningest coach when No. 6 Duke beat Michigan State 74-69 on Tuesday night in the State Farm Champions Classic.

The Blue Devils gave Krzyzewski his 903rd win, breaking the tie with Knight, Krzyzewski’s college coach at Army and his mentor throughout his professional career…

Good for Coach K. He’s a good person, he deserves it… not sure I can say the same for Coach Knight. Below is my favorite picture ever of them.

Coach K… same stoic look on his face… getting his slap on the baby Bobby.
