Legendary Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski has claimed for some time now, that his favorite singer is Beyonce. In a recent interview with a local Durham television station, coach K was asked about the time he met Beyonce in 2013, when he presented LeBron James with the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year Award.
Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z was in attendance, and after meeting him and LeBron, Coach K decided to introduce himself to Queen B.
“But I didn’t get to meet her, so I went up and said ‘I’m Coach K’ and she says ‘I just heard you speak for 10 minutes. I know who you are.’ So I felt like 13, and then I asked her — something I hardly ever ask anyone to do — would you please take a picture with me?”
Coach K also joked that he looked ‘petrified’ in the photo.
