Excerpt from Rick Bonnell article

An aside on his two seasons at Duke: McRoberts said playing for Mike Krzyzewski “wasn’t the best fit for me, that’s all I’ll say … I probably stayed longer than I should have.”)

I guess Okafor didn't get the memo.

WHAT? The dookie system isn't conducive to potential NBA prospects- ESPECIALLY bigs? You're Kidding! 

 

I read K's comments a few weeks ago after the embarrassing upset to Mercer, and he said "we're going to run our offense through Okafor." 

 

Fist, that was probably K's last subtle manipulation play on Parker, and it was also when I think everyone knew that Jabari was leaving regardless of what was being said by media folks. Secondly, "offense going through Okafor" - I'll believe that when I see it. Okafor's job is going to be setting screens up top and then lurking down low for boards. Any points he scores are going to have to come through putbacks or if his boyfriend Tyus passes him the ball. Not to mention the dookies are going to be lacking that signature "stretch 4" that K has always had when his team is a legit acc/national title contender. 

 

I know K is recently recruiting at a level he's never been at before, snagging big time NBA prospects..etc, but it hasn't been working out for him. What, 4 tourney wins the past three seasons sandwiched between two extremely embarrassing first round knock outs. And yes, I know he won the national title in '10 but look at the players on that team. Euroleague players and career NBA bench warmers.

That was an amazing personnel move by Cho. McRoberts was wasting away deep on the bench of a bad team. He's played very well for the bobcats and after reading comments like these; I am liking this dude more by the day.

JJ from The Observer tweeted out this quote a little earlier today and the dookies were out in full affect bashing McBob and praising K.

McRoberts is def one of those dudes from duke who I thought was going to be there for 4 years. Another one of those typical "stretch 4" guys I've been talking about that Ratface absolutely must have to have a top team.

Something else I was going to mention to you, but I forgot which thread I posted it in...go google and check out the recent comments from Okafor regarding the 1 and done rule in college. Someone from I think it was SI got an interview with him and his Dad about the one and done rule possibly being changed to a 2/3 and done rule, and both of them did not sound pleased to hear it. Okafor sounds like he doesn't even want to be in college this year. 

 

Duke's got the hype (they always do, just like this year lol) and there's a good chance they open up at preseason #1 but I'm not worried about them at all. They'll be competitive but relying on freshmen...man I dunno. Those dudes would have probably been better off going to Kentucky. Really think it's going to be UNC or UVA that wins the ACC.

It should've been common sense that he doesn't like K.

He was a lock to go top 5 after his freshman year & K coerced him into coming back. Then he was wasted & misused & fell to the 2nd round.

i don't think in McRoberts case this is on k. he is a talent but was not as good as he thought he was while at dook.I don't think he is a good example of the program not preparing  or being conducive to NBA prospects.McRoberts was his own worst enemy at dook.

McBob has a weird skill set for the college game. He needed to play the stretch 4 but K actually played him at Center. That's a case of not having the right roster for a guy.

UNC fan here, don't think this is a knock on Dook at all. Let's face it K is one of the best coaches of all time. He has proven himself at the college level and with professionals, generally players rave about him. 

 

He wasn't the right fit, happens all the time.
