Then & Now: Larry Bird, Coach K & The USA

Published on July 22nd, 2013 by Astramskas, David | 1,596 views


In 1992, Larry Bird was a player on the Dream Team and Coach Mike Krzyewski (shuh-SHEF’-skee) was the assistant coach.  Since then Coach K has produced a 62-1 record coaching Team USA and after winning two straight gold medals, the 66 year old coach said he was done.

Back in May, he was convinced to come back as head coach and with his return the USA is hoping he will be able to convince some of the NBA’s biggest names to return also.
