Shelle Knows: What Coach is “Crazy in Love” With Beyonce

Duke‘s coach Mike Krzyzewski  has a huge crush on the Pop diva Beyonce.  Some may refer to her as the Queen, the King, but Mike Krzyzewski thinks that one day he can have him some Beyonce.  Watching Krzyzewski over the years as the coach from Duke you do not see this lighter side of him as he is always so serious and in-game mode.  After all these years, you certainly don’t expect to hear Coach K fawn over a celebrity pop singer.

“I really love Jay-Z, I do, I love Jay-Z,” Krzyzewski said. “But I’m madly in love with Beyonce.”

Oh but it does not stop there…

“I admit it. My three daughters, my wife of 44 years knows it; they’re not worried. Just because I’m still competitive, I think there’s a shot in hell, at least, that something might happen. If I stop thinking that way, then I stop coaching. You have to always think you can win.”

Those are real quotes taken from Krzyzewski’s speech to Duke graduate students who “tented” outside Cameron Indoor Stadium last weekend in the hopes of scoring tickets to Blue Devils basketball games this season.

He then continued his speech sharing how he met the pop star at Lebron James Gala and his fascination with Queen Bey.

“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. [It’s] going all over the place. I am the coolest 65-year-old [inaudible]. 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.”

How cute is it to see such a uptight serious guy talk about a crush like he is 11 years old again.  Of course this will never happen but seeing this side of a person that we normally do not see is great.  Below is the picture Coach K was referring to.
