Russell,

I was watching the same segment and noticed this too. I was surprised, considering he’s a player from Duke and Coach K usually has his players well-trained in off the court skills.

To add onto your post, Toastmasters http://www.toastmasters.org/ is a great way to get some work on public speaking, especially for college students and young professionals.

Toastmasters is a great organization. I was actually the president of a Toastmasters chapter at business school. Participating in that group really helped me develop my public speaking skills (I used to have a big problem with “um” but not any more).
