And rightfully so.
Adrian Wojnarowski’s article was just wrong on so many levels. Coach K was mostly angry about the claim that the picture of him and Paul George in the hospital was staged for publicity: "To say that I orchestrated that and used Paul George to show that I was a good guy is really wrong. If you want to think that, then you are a bad person."
“The thing that [Adrian] Wojnarowski wrote was completely off-base. The thing I hate about writers is they want to state their case and they use false information. He put in that Mike [Krzyzewski] went to the hospital [to visit Paul George] for publicity. Paul George’s parents took the picture. They put it out there. We had no cameraman. It was his parents. That was unbelievably low.”

Some of this year’s NBA rookies (including Duke’s own Jabari Parker, of course) re-created a classic SLAM Magazine cover from 1997, which featured rookies such as Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, and Ray Allen. (x)
