If Krzyzewski does not return for 2016, who should replace him?

There is a poll and an article discussing this very topic here:

NBA Rumors: Analyzing Top Candidates for Next Team USA Basketball Head Coach | Bleacher Report

Worth a read Spurs fans.

Oh yeah.. And after you're done reading that, read what Doc Rivers says here:

Rivers: Collins should be next Team USA coach


Doc Rivers, who has analyzed the Olympic basketball games for NBC this summer, said that anyone who was asked to take over would say yes -- including him.

He wouldn't say that he's the best man for the job, though. Instead, Rivers thought another member of NBC's broadcast team would be more suited for the position: Doug Collins.

"And there's a reason," Rivers said. " '72."

Collins, who served as color analyst for NBC in London, was on Team USA in 1972 when a controversial ending robbed the Americans of the gold medal in Munich. Rivers said that he thought Collins deserved the job over himself and Spurs coach Greg Popovich -- two of the likely frontrunners for the job.*

Rivers said that if he was selected for the job that he would work to make sure Collins served as an assistant on the team's staff.

Good, I hope they don't pick Pop! Coaching the national team just adds to the wear and tear and would ruin him for the regular season.

Seriously, isn't there bad blood between Colangelo and Pop? See here:

I think the last guy cut in '72, not the last guy in should be the next coach. In other words, Popovich, not Collins.

Coaching doesn't put wear and tear on Pop. He's not a player. LOL.
