Watched duke play

Couple things Htar.

1. Happy to hear you watched a Duke game. Anyone who considers themselves a die-hard Duke or Carolina fan and member of the greatest rivalry in sports should always watch the rivals games. I watch every Carolina game of the year, that way I know what I am talking about when I talk sh*t. So that is a positive for you Htar.

2. Duke is pretty athletic. You can be white and be athletic, it happens sometimes. How high do you think Mason and Miles Plumlee can jump? Just curious.

3. Carolina may be young this year, but keep in mind Duke has two seniors on the team, that's it.

4. As for knowing who their leaders are at the beginning of the season, that would be considered a positive. And yes we know what the can do, Jon is the reigning ACC tournament MVP and Kyle Singler is a serious candidate for National Player of the Year. Not sure how that is seen as not impressive. If we want to talk not impressive, that would be Carolina's level of play this season so far.

5. Finally, if you want to question Duke being a top ten team, you, my friend, need to look in the mirror. How can you ask that question with a straight face, when Carolina is ranked 4th in the Nation. There is nothing about that team that is 4th best in the Nation. Be happy with a high early season ranking, it will not be there at the end. Kinda like your football team, over hyped early and shows its colors mid season then trys to turn it on when its too late. But you probably aren't even a Carolina football fan.

Are you talking about the UNC fball team that pounded your dookies? Yeah, I know quite a bit about UNC football and have been a fan for years. How you like that defense? I'd question your loyalty to the gridiron devils but I know you're not a fan of that...I think there are 500 dook football fans in the world - odds are you aren't one of them.

As for hoops, the devils are maxed out. Not much upside there.

Maxed out and two key players haven't played a minute yet. Makes sense.

I mean, MP is a freshman and has a broken arm - doubt he'll be a factor at all this year and Nolen hasn't done squat to this point in his career. Am I wrong?

Actually he has a broken bone in his wrist and will be out a few weeks. I told you Smith averaged 9 ppg. and 3 asst. and 3 rebs in a back up role last year. He was only a second year player. He is no superstar but he can play he will average more points than any of UNC's guards this year. Miles vertical is 35 inches and his brother isn't far behind, so I would say that is a pretty athletic big man. Maybe you think he is not athletic because he is white, that is pretty close minded of you.
