Mason Plumlee Update

Actually, you claim that Irving is the only differentiator between the two programs. But then you hid from the facts that out of the players that both schools have currently in the league:
- 5 out of the top 6 leading scorers are Dukies
- 4 out of the top 5 leading rebounders are Dukies
- 3 out of the top 5 leading assist men are Dukies
- that the fantasy league points based on actual NBA production favors Duke's alums over UNC's by a wide margin. In fact, you could remove Irving's 1095 fantasy points and Duke players would still have a lead of nearly 700 points over the Heels.
All of that shows that Duke's current group of NBA players is vastly better than UNC's and it's not a function of Irving alone. And the gap is growing since the 2000 NBA season where out of the players that both schools have put in league since then:
- Duke players have scored 40 pts. or more in an NBA game 8 times. No UNC player entering the league after 1999 has ever scored 40 pts.
- Duke players have accounted for 7 All Star selections. No UNC player entering the league after 1999 has ever made an All Star game.
- Duke has 2 NBA ROY winners. No UNC player entering the league after 1999 has been selected NBA ROY.
These are the facts. They show Duke players currently are better and that it is not solely a function of Kyrie Irving. They also show that the quality of players put out over the last decade or so greatly favors Duke. You should really come to accept this as you haven't been to show anything of substance to state otherwise. Stick to the name calling... leave thought for the adults.

Good to see you keeping up with Duke players in the NBA.
Btw, Krispy Kreme May looked good behind the UNCheat bench yesterday. Was his NBA or Euro team on Christmas break.

Back on topic.....
The lowly Nets finally win one, with little help from Keg-Head:

Thanks, little booger, for confirming what was already established on pg. 6, post 1 (that the only real differentiator between the two programs currently is a former dookie that logged a total of 11 games for the school in durm).
btw, that same differentiator went 0-9 from the floor and 0-3 from the stripe against the same team 3 weeks ago.
can you say struggling??? some have alluded that the crown jewel dookie is the biggest letdown in the Eastern Conference (with his team under the projected playoff cut -- again)...

That's a nice stat line for Danny. If he had only scored another 18 points he would have hit the 40 points that Kyrie Irving scored on the same night. He still would have needed another 2 rebounds, 7 assists, and a steal to catch up but still, by Heel standards it was a nice night for him.
If Danny can keep that type of performance up maybe the gap between Duke and UNC players in the NBA can narrow a bit.

no one said it was more important. just more recent and therefore more relevant... and more embarrassing...

Good to know that you think a regular season game is more important than a tournament game!
ACC Regualr Season Champion > ACC Tournamnet Champion

Shallow Hal...would be proud of booger-boy (after getting a glimpse of his life-partner). And proud of dook too, if they were to achieve back-to-back Elite Eights for the first time in a decade and a half.
Back on topic.
In his most recent outing, Mason didn't miss a single attempt in his 27 minutes of action. He scored his 22 points on five 3-pointers, while going 3 of 3 at the free-throw line. He also filled up the box score nicely, with two assists, two blocks and three steals in the win.
Oh wait...that was DANNY GREEN.

That is the kind of deep thought and quality post I would expect from you.
