Former Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski was in attendance at Saturday’s game at Barclays Center to watch ex-players RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish of the New York Knicks, as well as Kyrie Irving and Seth Curry of the Brooklyn Nets.
“For sure, great seeing Coach K. Love that guy, man. Any time he’s around, gotta show him some love,” Barrett said. “I saw him in the summer. I went down to Duke. He meant so much [to me]. That’s a coach who really cares about you on and off the court. Puts you in a position to succeed. He’s also tough on you when you need it. He’s just a great human being, overall. I think that’s why he’s so loved.”
