Coach K Surprised About Durant's Team USA Departure

Kevin Durant's withdrawal from Team USA for "physical and mental fatigue" threw head coach Mike Krzyzewski for a loop. The longtime Duke and national team coach told ESPN on Thursday that losing KD made him have to restructure USA's entire strategy, as their system was built around the NBA's reigning MVP. "It's one of those things; you don't replace Kevin Durant," Krzyzewski said. "You look different. And so we have [Thursday] and [Friday] to look different before we play a really good team." Team USA meets Brazil in an exhibition game Saturday.
