WHAT COACH K WANTS FROM HIS PLAYERS

This is what I want from my players -- a belief in a higher authority and respect for that authority.  But the truth is that if they don't have it to a certain degree by the time they get to Duke, I'm not sure they'll ever have it.

That's why we try to recruit kids who already show that type of respect.

All the players on our team must have the discipline to believe and trust in what a coach says to them at a moment's notice -- and the coach has to believe and trust in what they say to me at a moment's notice.

From "Leading with the Heart" by Mike Krzyzewski
