Maybe it wasn't such a good idea to have NBA TV televise a Team USA basketball practice live. Mike Krzyzewski was recently caught on a hot mic telling Kyrie Irving "fuck you" after he was interrupted while trying to explain something to his other players.

Even though it's difficult to make out what Irving said or did to elicit that response out of Coach K we're pretty sure the Cleveland Cavaliers star point guard is still in his head coach's good graces. As you can tell, Irving immediately started laughing after hearing Krzyzewski drops the f-bomb. Plus, these two have known one another for quite some time now, stemming from Irving's brief, one-year stint with the Duke Blue Devils.

Irving played in just 11 games with Duke before missing the remainder of the season with a toe injury. However, his small sample size (and possibly having the Coach K pedigree) was enough to convince the Cavaliers to take him with the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. 

"Having a chance to go for a gold in the Olympics is a dream come true," Irving told reporters after Tuesday's practice. Kyrie may think that playing in the Games is "just a little step below winning a championship," but that doesn't mean he isn't taking this opportunity seriously. Once August rolls around, he'll put his game face on. But until then, he's going to have some fun.
