When you mention super-stardom in today’s celebrity-centric world, it’s hard not to mention Kanye West.
West has permeated all facets of cultural life, from music to fashion to now being a part of the daily life of one the best college coaches in history.
In a picture released today, we get a peek into the life of legendary Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, listening to one of Chicago’s most influential artists while on his way to the gym in the city.

This should not come as a surprise, however; Coach K has always shown an interest in popular culture and was giddy to meet and take pictures with cultural icon Beyonce.
You know, Kanye and Coach K aren’t too different from each other if you think about it. Both are masters of their craft and are revered amongst their peers for their accomplishments.
In an interview with Sway in the Morning, Kanye was quoted saying, “I am the number one most impactful artist of this generation.” I want you to replace “artist” with “coach” and tell me it isn’t an apt description of coach K.
Sure, Mike is far too humble to say anything like this, but the similarities are there!
