"I just told him, ‘Do what you feel you need to do. You don’t owe anybody, you owe yourself.’ He didn’t need any advice from me."
Very humble of Coach K. You have to think that his advice did a little to help LeBron feel even more comfortable about his decision.
Coach K is also pretty familiar with Cleveland’s best player (before LeBron came back) Kyrie Irving, who played at Duke for a year before jumping to the NBA.
He thinks Irving has a great chance to develop even more with LeBron on the team:
"I hope that the main thing is he serves as an example of what a star player, what a great player does in order to develop his greatness and keep it going. For Kyrie to be around that on a day-to-day basis, really all the teammates, but especially Kyrie because he can be that level of player. He’s very fortunate to have that."
