Are you kidding me? Duke doesnt have Durant/Oden, they dont have Conley/DJ Augstine....come on dude. Thier freshman are Henderson Jr and Jon friggin Scheyer. Please stack them up vs the other freshman across the country. Duke usually has atleast 1 impact freshman/diaper dandy. Not this time. Lets look at the sophmores...Greg Paulus? He's a damn football player who can play basketball. Should have went to Notre Dame to play football. Check his assist to turnover ratio. It sucks! How can Coach K correct something that is Greg's damn fault? Face it dude was overrated as a high school prospect bigtime. Freshman season misled folks thinkin he was gonna be another special Duke PG. Not me.
David McClure? Guy's a stiff. Why is he starting as a Duke Blue Devil? Pfft
The two stars of Duke if you can even call them that are Nelson and McRoberts another sophmore who hasnt emerged like past Duke stars have. He was supposed to be the marquee talent leading this Duke team. Guy is like a icecream sammich. You bite the front and all the icecream goes out the backside. Nelson is ok but he like McRoberts just arent the typical Duke star players they normally have. Where are the Carlos Boozers? Elton Brands? Luol Dengs? Trajan Langdons?
You and I know Duke teams were stacked with a nice 6-7. You had your overrated HS All Americans no doubt but the team still had legit players. Guys who threatened to make the leap to th NBA as first round picks, lottery picks. Who on this team has that? McRoberts?
Coach K is 22-10 dude. Not much room for criticizm if you followed the team. You think after my semi roast the talent on the roster this team had a crappy record. 22-10. In one of the toughest divisions in the nation. Eh
If next season Coach K has a worst record...then your topic should be cool. Not now bro.
