Mike Krzyzewski says he is only thinking about this year, not about a potential third Olympics as U.S. basketball coach. A day after Cleveland rookie Kyrie Irving said he found out Krzyzewski planned to lead the U.S. again in 2016, the Duke coach says he is focused only on the remainder of the Blue Devils' season and the London Games. Both Krzyzewski and USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo, in statements provided Tuesday by USA Basketball, deny that discussions about the future have taken place. Irving said he would not pursue a chance to play for Australia this summer in hopes of playing for the U.S. in four years. Colangelo says Irving will be given consideration if he continues to play as well as he is now.
