I don't follow the NBA that closely...Sue me. Grant Hill is out so much, who knew?

In 2008 NC got beat by the best team in the country...KANSAS! I think Kansas proved they were and had an argument to be considered the best all season. That 99 dook team was the biggest meltdown ever. No way should Uconn have won that game. How u like them facts!!![/quote]

There wasnt one single fact in that response. So I can't really say one way or another how I like them. Sorry.

Let's not forget Kansas was a desperation 3 at the buzzer away from NOT winning the National Championship last year. What then? Would they still be the best team? I mean you make it sound like everyone in the country was like "kansas is going to win this year, no doubt about it".

You gotta be kiddin me...Kansas PROVED they were the best buy beating UNC and finally Memphis in the final...UNC, Memphis, Kansas were the top three most if not all season.

here's another newsflash for you, since you obviously don't know...SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO SNEAK ONE OUT IN THE TOURNAMENT...It happens to nearly every team that cuts the nets down. There is usually one game that they had a serious gut check in.

Your memory is short with regard to Kansas...Hell, I posted several times last year that they were probably the most talented team in the country. And I wasn't the only guy thinking that.

Please. They squeaked by Davidson with a 2 point victory the game before UNC. Most if not all Tar Heel fans were looking ahead to knocking off Memphis. In fact, the Heels were favored by 4 points in that game. They were also favored to win the whole tournament when it got down to the final 4.

Just because Roy wanted Kansas to win when Carolina played against them doesn't mean they were the best team!

what's a realistic goal for duke this year, in your opinion? Also, i read something yesterday where henderson dodged the question about where he'll play next year...you think he's going to take advantage of a weak draft and bonk out? It would be the wise move. Strike while the iron is hot.

Wow, I bet you're one of those goofy ass Duke fans that believe Ty Lawson is faking his injury too, aren't you?

Just because Roy Williams showed some support to the school where he spent 15 years of his life, after the Tar Heels were already eliminated BTW, that doesn't mean he wasn't trying to beat them.:rolleyes:

Who cut the nets down last year? Who did Kansas beat to do it? My god some of you don't remember who the top 4 teams were all of last season? Kansas, Memphis, UCLA and NC were all considered the top teams to beat. Kansas did the deed. I choose to give them props. As for talent, how many of Kansas' players went pretty high in the draft? Anyone remember? How many of the Heels best players would've been taken in the first round?

Damn, that's some really stupid poo...

I'm sure you'd be just as critical if, and yes it's ridicules, but if Navy or Indiana was playing for the national championship after Duke was eliminated, which he would probably do...

OK, I made a mistake, he's not my coach and I haven't dedicated my on-line life to hating him... :lol:
