Mike Krzyzewski

The Duke coach basketball prowess is hardly in doubt with the third most wins in college hoops history. His influence is much further reaching than Cameron Indoor Stadium, however. His word carries serious weight with the NCAA and his USA men's gold-medal coaching puts him in elite company. From NBA coaches and players to the NCAA to high school hoopsters, Krzyzewski's opinion means something.CHUCK LIDDY, McClatchy-Tribune
