Coach K to lead USA basketball to 2016 Olympics

Coach K is 66 years old with little sign of slowing down (as much as I, and other UNC fans, would like him to).  After saying the London Olympics were the end of his tenure as coach of Team USA, today he surprised many by changing his mind  and continuing his leadership looking towards Rio in 2016.  He has been coach of Team USA since 2005 and boasts a 62-1 record (loss to Greece 101-95 September 1, 2006) and two Olympic gold medals.

Do I like cheering for Coach K, ever? No  Do I cheer for Team USA basketball?  Yes.  It is a paradox and one I will have to live with for another few years.

PS- Is it basketball season yet?
