Duke's Mike Krzyzewski and Kentucky's John Calipari are two of the greatest coaches in college basketball -- Sports Court attempts to determine once and for all who's the very best of the best.Watch on YouTube | Subscribe to SB Nation on YouTube

There's no doubt that both Mike Krzyzewski and John Calipari are about as good as it gets when it comes to college basketball coaches. Just about any program in the country would hire either in a heartbeat, and for good reason. But when push comes to shove, which of the two is truly the best there is?

Matt Ufford and Elena Bergeron enter Judge Ryan Nanni's courtroom to square off in an attempt to settle the debatet. Ufford is representing Coach K, who has brought 5 championships to Duke over the last 25 years, while Bergeron argues on behalf of Coach Cal, participant of 4 of the past 5 Final Fours and the man responsible for assembling and leading some of the most dominant teams in college hoops history.

Compelling cases are made for each legendary coach, but whose argument is stronger? Tempers flare and tension rises as the two passionately fight for their client to be seen as the only right answer as for who is king of college basketball coaches.
