one of the best sports articles I've ever read about one of my favorite basketball players.

Michael Lewis on Shane Battier

It's long, but it's worth it. I sincerely hope that if Shane Battier ever decides to go into coaching he will consider going back to Duke. And I also hope that the Duke AD will be smart enough to realize how valuable of a commodity he could be. The guy is a great great player who knows how to win. And not in some abstract "heart" or "guts" kind of way, but in solid proven on court play. He understands what to do, when to do it, and how to go about it.

If he doesn't end up coaching my devils some day I guess I hope he goes into politics so I can vote for him at some point.
