Fox sports -- comes inside game is presented by city. Today let's talk about the 2012 coaches that for the best boxing. -- she -- -- they have Nate McMillan and Mike and Tony. Gym they have a coach K I've been doing this together for it seems like 25 years. When I played for the world team in 1990 may have without a staff. And the reason coach K and they have worked so well together is completely polar opposite. He -- so when you look at coach k's he's passionate and intense. And sometimes when you look at they have it doesn't seem like he's quite as hands and his demeanor is totally opposite from coach case. But once you talked to ban -- -- him in the locker room behind closed doors. His passion for the game and his intensity for the game is as -- as coach k's so. They just worked very very well together. Mike and Tony just a great coach. Played overseas for many years so I think one of the big Saints haven't Antonio on the staff is that he. Can do the scouting reports on the other teams he knows -- style of play in Europe. Which is usually no defense a lot of offense. So Dan Tony is an incredible piece of the team because he's gonna help with scouting reports. The style of play of these other teams he played in Italy he knows how they play so he's an invaluable resource for the coaching staff. Nate McMillan is another coach to coach -- worked with for many years. Played mass -- these days so I don't know really how he and coach K get along but he's just a great basketball mind he's been in the league for so long. Played for the Seattle SuperSonics. I played against them for many years just an unbelievable defender so. I think coach K asks them talk a lot about defense their practice he's going to be in defense specialist coach during the Olympics. So look for him to have a big impact on the team.
