I mean, who doesn’t love B? Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski is arguably one of the best college basketball coaches ever, and I’m sure many fans who get the opportunity to meet him get a little star stuck. So, who would make Coach K turn nervously red? Well, Beyonce of course. “I really love Jay-Z, but I’m madly in love with Beyonce.” Here’s how he told the story about meeting her at the Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year Awards to group of Duke graduate students. H/T: For The Win “So anyway I go up on stage and do 10 minutes and say really nice things about LeBron, Jay and of course Beyonce. The event’s over, and this is where my street cred, like, was bouncing all over the world. I’m asked to come up on stage and take a picture with LeBron and Jay. So it’s LeBron, Jay, and K. It’s on Twitter, Instagram, I don’t know, was Vine going then? It’s on all that crap. I mean in Hong Kong, Beijing, Moscow. My (expletive) going all over the place. I am the coolest 65-year-old (expletive). However, however, what I want has not happened yet. I want to meet Beyonce. … I go up to Beyonce. You know how guys think they have a lot of good lines? And, so I go up and I’m nervous as I can be. I’m like a teenager. And I go to her with a great line. I say, ‘Hi, I’m Coach K.’ And she said, ‘Coach, I know who you are. I just listened to you for 10 minutes.’ Like, patting me on the head. Little boy. So now I feel like I’m 11. So what’s my next line? I come up and I say, ‘You’re my favorite.’ My face is red as can be, you know, I’m like 4 feet tall right now. And she says, ‘Well, that’s nice.’ And I asked her — and I don’t usually do this — but I said, ‘Would you take a picture with me?’ So she takes a picture with me and I look, really, like I’m 12. But my street cred, as big as the other one was, goes everywhere. So, tonight, it’s not like being with Beyonce — it’s as good as being with Jay-Z.” Welp, there you have it. Coach K flirted with Beyonce AND has more street cred that you. Are you jealous, because I am.
