On the heels of his 1,000th career coaching win, Mike Krzyzewski joined fellow SiriusXM College Sports Nation host Mark Packer for a game of word association.

Packer threw a bunch of fellow head coach names at Coach K, who in turn offered his thoughts:

  • John Wooden: “The best.”
  • Bob Knight: “Preparation, fire, and I’m thankful that I had him.”
  • Dean Smith: “As good as there is.”
  • Jim Valvano: “My brother.”
  • Jim Calhoun: “An intense competitor and friend.”
  • John Calipari: “He’s figured it out, man.”
  • Tom Izzo: “A true friend.”
  • Jim Boeheim: “The best friend.”

Finally, Packer threw out Duke University. Coach K’s response:

“The only place that I wanna be.”
