As expected, last night's game between the Orlando Magic and the Los Angeles Lakers was a star-studded affair, not only on the court but off the court, too. Just a quick list of famous people that showed up to the O-Rena - Chris Brown, Ludacris, Spike Lee, Steve Nash, Tiger Woods, and a bevy of other individuals.
But I wanted to point out one person from the crowd, which was Mike Krzyzewski, the head coach of Duke University and the 2006 & 2008 United States men's basketball team.
Why was he at the game?
To root on J.J. Redick, who played for Coach K at Duke. Likewise, one can surmise he was in attendance to also support Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard, two players that were a part of the Redeem Team in the Beijing Olympics this past summer.
In any case, let's have some fun today.
What words of wisdom is Krzyzewski imparting on Redick?
I'm sure everyone here is familiar with a "create a caption" competition, but in case someone here doesn't know what this type of contest is ... basically a picture is provided and you, the reader, attempt to come up with a quick sentence describing what's occurring in the photo. The line can be funny, stupid, witty, etc.
I'll be a judge but I like to have another collective voice determining the winner, that way there's a bit of a consensus among the community. What I prefer for everyone here to do is this ... if you like the caption a fellow member has come up with, "recommend" it. That will be 'your vote', in essence. If you don't know how to "recommend" a comment, go to the comment you like, click on 'actions', then click on 'rec'. You can "recommend" multiple captions/comments, if you want.
So for a quick recap.
- Write a quick sentence describing what's occurring in the photo.
- If you like a caption/comment that's been written, "recommend" it.
- After you "recommend" a caption/comment, write something (like +1, for example) to indicate you like the sentence a 3QC member has written.
- The contest will last 24 hours, so whichever caption/comment gets the most recommendations, wins. In case of a tie, I'll determine the winner.
Let the contest begin!
