    Duke is going to be filthy next season. No doubt about it. Haters should root for injuries (surely they won't), Grayson Allen meltdown (surely they will), or K's age (again surely they won't), it is what it is.

    Best advice for your team is to get better. Be able to compete at the highest level. The highest level college coaches are just going to keep upping the level of excellence.

    I seriously doubt Duke has the same rash of injuries they endured last year. So in other words, yeah----they could be really, really good,

    Based on? I've watched both as H.S rising Sr's. Bosh could do everything Bagley can do except he was a better shooter, skinnier and lead his teams further in regular season and summer

    Hoops is not a one man game. Can't compare team success.

    And who cares what they were like in the summer. Summer is run and fun, no D.

    He is long athletic and can run the floor and shoot from outside. He and Carter will be a handful inside.

    I’m calling it before anyone, duke will go 40-0. If y’all wanna be rich, it’s time to lay down the cash. I think cal will probably just let them have their way with us. How do you stop a guy that can jump from the free throw line and dunk? That’s michael Jordan status. Rare air. I will be the first to say congrats and after I retires from going 40-0 and is given a parade through Raleigh, with heel fans giving him a standing ovation, I’ll still give you guys props.

    No. Wall2boogie will most definitely say it again next year. It is his thing.

    I think they’ll be good but not great again this year but I could also see it going differently. Zion has looked better than advertised in preseason. I think he and Barrett could actually work well together. They need Reddish to make open shots and need something from Bolden/De Laurier. I think De Laurier is a fine role player. They’d be better off starting him at center from what we’ve seen of Bolden.

    Idk. I could see them being great I guess. I still think Kansas/Kentucky and a few others have a better and more complete roster on paper. Duke will have the 2 best players on the floor most nights however.

    Hard to be funny when their own fans bought thousands of t-shirts saying the same thing. Gets old.

    They had 3 first round draft choices last year. What makes them better this year?
