Mike Dunleavy told a great story about calling best friends Shane Battier and pretending to be Coach K.
Battier apparently kept getting calls from Mike Krzyzewski, his coach at Duke.
Voice messages were left a few years ago for Battier that seemed strange. It was suggested he should drop Peak as the Chinese shoe he wears and how he was taking too many 3-pointers and drawing too many charges.
For those who know the Miami Heat forward, his outside shot and crafty defensive skills are the two best parts of his game.
“He called me and said, “Coach has been calling,’’’ recalls Milwaukee Bucks forward Mike Dunleavy, Battier’s former teammate at Duke. “Of course, I just lost it and started laughing so hard because I got him.’’
Let Dunleavy explain what had transpired.
“There’s an app you can get that goes right to somebody’s voice mail so you don’t have to let it ring,’’ Dunleavy said. “I called him up a few times pretending I was Coach K and wanted him to do all sorts of stupid stuff… I told him stuff like that shoe endorser, the Chinese company, is not cutting it. I told him to needs to do stuff on the court, like he’s shooting too many 3-pointers or stop taking charges, just to mess with him.’’
