In case you missed it: Zoubek's Dream Puffz and a post-basketball idea for Krzyzewski

Just in case you missed these on the site's Duke landing page, here are two basketball pieces that I wrote this week.

Former Duke star Zoubek now peddles cream puffs: So it looks like Brian Zoubek has found himself a nice, post-basketball niche with his new cream puff shop. When I talked to him, he seemed super excited. And, if you use Yelp as your food Bible like I do, it seems like he is off to a successful start. My favorite nugget from that story, though: he found his pastry chef on Craigslist.

Coach K for ... elected office? Waters thinks it's a great idea: I was talking with Bucky Waters, former NC State player, Duke coach, national broadcaster, for a different story when he floated his Mike Krzyzewski-the-politician theory. And I thought it was interesting enough to be shared.

One note that's not currently in the story: people on Twitter almost instantly started asking about Krzyzewski's political affiliation. While he did host a fundraiser for then-Republican Senate nominee Elizabeth Dole (who is a Duke grad), he is currently registered as an independent, per the state's voter registration database.

Hope you enjoy.
