    thinks he is better than what he is

    Where'd you get that impression? From everything I've seen and read about him, he is a great team player, does exactly what Coach K asks him to do, doesn't care whether he starts or comes off the bench and is one of the hardest workers on the team. The best on-the-ball defender on the current roster and was named captain due to all of the above.

    I agree with everything except the spread. Duke by 15+

    Duke makes a case for #1.

    Best on the ball defender. How does he do against athletic fast, and quick guards? (Dez Wells, Russ Smith, Shane Larkin, etc. He is a captain because he is a senior, and does has leadership skills. Not taking that from him at all. He flops, all the time. Nice elbow to Scott Wood last year. He works hard, and still cant shoot. I know he hit big shot or two in the past, but I know Duke fans that hate to see him shoot. I know you agree also that he shouldn't be starting over Suliamon!! I have always said that Cook is Duke's most important player. If he goes down please tell me that you are better with Thornton running the point?

    He starts over Sulaimon because he brings some things to the beginning of the game that Coach K must not feel Sulaimon can. That doesn't mean that he gets to play all 40 minutes and Sulaimon sits on the bench the whole game wishing he was playing somewhere else... Coach K is most likely starting Sulaimon on the bench to provide some motivation for him to improve in areas that could use improvement... Clearly, Duke will be even better if Sulaimon improves his game in all areas so there is no reason to play Thornton over him with the exception of coming in as a sub to give him a break...

    TJ Warren for the pack has the chance to be very very good. Agreed that Hood and Parker have incredible basketball skills and are a lot of fun to watch. Been hearing good things about Des Lee, Cat Barber, Lewis, and Warren.

    Lotta of scoring on the floor if Hood, Parker, and Sulaimon are all out their together. Let Sula play starter minutes ut come off the bench and take over the scoring when either Hood or Parker are taking a break.

    Can live with that 903. Crunch time Sulamon will be in there. Plus maybe K is counting on Sulamon to be the 6th man off the bench? Guess he knows what he is doing, 4 titles, who will argue with him?
