Duke Injuries!

21 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

So basically 3 members of the team this year played with injuries that needed surgery when the season was over. Seth had a shin injury that he played through all season and had surgery when the season ended, Ryan played with a broken bone in his foot and had surgery, and Marshall had surgery on his foot today.

@laurakeeley: Wow. Timeline for Marshall Plumlee's recover from left foot surgery is 3-4 months. No joke. #Duke

This is not good news.

Not whining at all just being informative. Plus I am very impressed with all these guys fighting through pain and adversity to try and help their team win. That is Duke Basketball, son!

What will the excuse be next year?

No big man? Can't rebound? Alex Murphy had a hangnail?

Who made an excuse? I am more talking about the character of these men by thinking more about their team then themselves. They both could have easily shut it down and gotten ready for the NBA camps and combine. They are the anti-D Rose!

I'm uncomfortable disclosing any personal information on a website when no one else is required to do so.

Let's focus on the topic at hand (Duke excuses) and worry less about what everyone else does for a living.

I don't ask you about your personal life because I don't give a poo. Either contribute to the conversation or please start posting in the lounge.

You must be unemployed since you are so defensive.

I am the only one contributing, I am giving you facts and you are spewing your usual nonsense.

Btw if you need a job hit me up.

@laurakeeley: By the way, one more #Duke surgery is still to come: Josh Hairston will get the ligaments in his right thumb fixed at a later date

Does insulting me make you feel better about yourself for driving a Hyundai?

I only insult people who consistently try to belittle other people, who on this site, only seems to be you. Nothing wrong with a hyundai brah. Maybe in 2001 but now they are doing their thing. I enjoy turbo charged vehicles and it measured out the best based on what I comfortably could afford. I know you dont understand having a mortgage and actual bills so Ill cut you some slack. Getting old sucks dude so stay with mommy as long as you can, real talk.
































Ill wait for your reply, my guess sometime around 12:30-1 pm

The problem with mrtrd is his hatred for Duke clouds his judgement and he can't be rational. I posted two articles on Duke players playing the year out with injuries and he wants to say that's me making excuses. Excuses for what? Duke not winning a title? We got beat by the eventual champs, they beat us there is no excuse. I have asked him repeatedly to show me where I made an excuse for anything and he can't, he just does what he always does and tries to deflect.

He just wants to troll, but gets all butt hurt when any one takes little jabs at him.

He can dish it out but definitely can't take it. I don't know how old he is but he acts like he is 18 or 19 years old, maybe one day he will grow up and we can have a rational discussion.

Fwiw Josh Hairston had surgery today on the torn ligament in his thumb. That should be it for the lingering injuries the Blue Devils had last season. Here's to hoping we have an injury free season next year, we have to be due for one.
