Who leaves and who stays?

20 posts in this topic

I honestly don't know at this point... I can see Barnes and Henson going, but I can just as easily see them staying... Barnes was lights out at times, yes, but was also very inconsistent and I'm sure didn't have the complete season he was hoping to have... I think there's something to be said for his education, but I don't know that it's enough to keep a leash on him... Maybe another season... Maybe... Henson, to me, is more likely to make the jump, but less ready, IMO... He's GOT to get stronger and bigger... Those NBA guys will break him... His Free Throw % is atrocious, and for every play he makes that leaves you shaking your head, he makes one that leaves you scratching your head too... Marshall returns... Bullock returns, of course... I think Zeller returns, but it's not a lock given the lack of effective big men in the draft for this year... If we lose Henson, Zeller, Knox and Barnes, we'll be hurtin' for size...

On Duke's side, Singler and Smith are gone, of course... I think pretty much everyone expects Irving to bolt... I could see Curry going, too, but that's no given... I've seen experts talk about Plumlee going because of the need for big men... If they lose Singler, Smith, Curry and Irving, they'll be hurtin...

Yeah i see Barnes and Henson going, same with Irving. (who will not play again this season) Curry stays and with his brother sit to play at Duke next season Plumlee will be back.

With the strong possibility of lockout next season, it's possible a lot of these guys aren't gonna hesitate to stay.

Would pray for a lockout if it meant Irving was to return next season.

The only person that will leave is Irving. I dont think Irving and Rivers will play well together but I'm sure Dookies would love to see it. Barnes, Henson, and Zeller will stay for a title run, maybe even back to back :)

One thing that may play in every college kids mind who thinks about staying when their stock is high...Singler. He lost alot of money by staying this year. He would have been a lottery pick and now maybe late 1st rd.

I think Barnes wants to win a National Championship. And honestly I think we're much too young to expect this team to win 6 in a row in the big dance. So I think he stays. I also think Henson stays. Word is that he loves it at Chapel Hill (much like Hansbrough). Zeller stays. Irving is gone and is the only underclassman dook will lose.

IF everybody stays, I think next year a National Title is a legitimate possibility with Hairston and McAdoo coming in to give us a boost off the bench.
