    Gonna have to disagree with you, Hokie. You can always find good players around the league who are playing for average teams. Green is a fantastic player but VT is currently in last place. Just depends on how you view things, I guess. I think POY/MVP awards should be given to those who lead their teams to titles or, at the very least, put their respective teams in the hunt for championships. IMHO, it's a disservice to the consistent winners to do it any other way. As I posted earlier, he should be first-team All-ACC, not POY. In fact, I think it comes down to Plumlee & Larkin when all is said & done.

    ^^^ That's what I've been writing on here Battling. You wrote that a team should have a winning season to have a POY. That's not right. VT, WF, GT, and the losers can't change a darn thing right now with what they have with players and walk-ons. VT has walk-ons playing minutes.

    I get where you're coming from. Some teams are faced with certain disadvantages. That doesn't mean they can't overcome 'em but it can be very difficult. It's not possible to lead the ACC in scoring and not have skills. Green is one of the most talented players in the league. He just needs a little help from his friends.

    I will not make any excuses for VT in having 7 on a scholarship either Battling. 7. What would Duke be doing with 7? What would any team do with 7? So. You see my point about Erick Green? He has as much heart or more than any player in the ACC that I've see in years. Larkin can look like an All American with his supporting cast. Curry has won games for Duke, and Duke has a supporing cast too. There is no one in front of Green. Forget about winning a Championship. I look at the heart of a player. I'll take Green in front of Curry and all other PG's. That's my best. I'm pulling for Duke to beat Miami. To heck with Miami. I don't give a darn about these culls.

    I'm not worried about Duke. They will keep playing close games and Kelly will return in time to get tuned up for the tourney.

    Not gonna make any excuses. The season can be a grind, both mentally & physically. Happens to all of 'em.

    Duke's scheduling was out of whack. No one plays this number of games without resting a little. Mason had 4 points. Nah. This doesn't happen.

    Your basketball IQ is equal to you number of posts on here. Kelly pulled defenders and re bounders away from around Mason. Further increasing his ability to score and rebound and creating passing/driving lanes for our guards. Duke is still trying to adjust to playing without him. Duke needs Kelly to make a legitimate run for a NT. He is not our savior. Kelly is one of our 3 best players, a senior and a very, very good 3 point shooter. Now, go play with the other little children and let the big kids finish their discussion.

    If Duke is better without him, then why was Kelly averaging 28 mpg? Wouldn't he average 0 mpg if they were better without him?

    Duke is much better defensively without Kelly so I don't buy this "We miss Kelly" stuff. This is ACC play people..... they lost 3 games without Kelly and they would have lost multiple games with him in the lineup.

    Kelly plays Duke TEAM defense better than his backups.

    With Kelly playing Duke TEAM defense, Duke is 15-0 this year.

    From what I seen of Duke over the years, they play TEAM defense. Even with Kelly, you can spread them out, like UNC did in the first half and drive to the basket. Kelly is important, but not as important as Duke fans would like most of us to think. He will not be the reason Duke wins it all or not this season.

    Duke scores more easily when they can run their offense utilizing a great stretch 4. They had that when Kelly was healthy. And since you ignored defense, I will also comment on that. Kelly is a better defender than his backups.

    This year's Duke team doesn't have enough talent to afford the loss of Ryan Kelly and expect to be a Top 5 team. However, people just assume Coach K will figure out a way to do it, that just speaks to his greatness.

  • Tar Heels Victory-Show No Mercer Feb 17, 2013

    Also, you knew that UNC team depended more on KM to get the offense going. Dook still has plenty of scoring on this team to make up for Kelly. You do not easily replace a record breaking assist man a few days before an NCAA Tournament game.

    We are not the ones claiming to have the GOAT! Losing a player during the season is a lot different than losing one in the Tournament. There is no time to adjust. Even you know that.
