Samer — the most important part of this mini-slump is that K might not be the first college coach to hit 1000 wins. Krizilonski's stuck at 997 wins, while Herb Magee at tiny little Philadelphia University (formerly Phila. College of freaking Textiles and Science) has 994.

Or maybe it means that he's the best player in the league, and knows that his coaches trust him enough to take over when necessary without asking "hey coach, am I allowed to take over at PG now?"
