Kidd and Coach K Share Mutual Respect in Quest for Gold

Coach Mike Krzyzewski says the one big difference between this year's Team USA and failed US efforts in 2002, 2004 and 2006 is the presence of Jason Kidd. "It's nice when you earn somebody's respect. But it's better when you already have it. He's got everyone's ultimate respect." Kidd feels the same about Coach K: "He makes things easy because he gives you what he wants to see out there, which makes it easy for a point guard." Still, both realize what matters is the games which begin Wednesday.
