Oakland basketball coach Greg Kampe will coach his 1000th game Friday as the Golden Grizzlies welcome Valparaiso.

Kampe hasn't given much thought to how he would like to celebrate the milestone, and he says the game itself is much more important.

When asked if he had spoken to the team at all about commemorating the occasion, Kampe said he hadn't, but that he wouldn't want a cake or something like that. Kampe suggested a nice cigar would be more fitting.

Oakland Athletics will make a special announcement at halftime of Friday's game, and it could very well be related to Kampe's big milestone.
