New Year, same old problems - short bench, no big men....

Our two best players have to be our scorers (Cook, Thonrton,Jefferson, Sulaimon can't carry that load), defend the teams other power players, and rebound. Just too much to ask against another team with many bigs. We'll win the ACC, and be a top ranked team, as we usually are, but it doesn't dismiss, or negate that we don't have a Boozer or Brand presence, and teams are going to attempt to exploit that weakness.
As for the bench, my opinion, is that they should have played significant minutes in the Davidson game - as much as the starters. Develop them when he can... K just chooses not to. Another weakness.
You called this Gall. It isn't. Having the ability to objectively look at, and provide unemotional constructive comments about the team, does not dismiss the ability to be a true fan. I think it makes me MORE a fan than the rest who can't. (yes, read this as YOU)
BTW (can't resist)... how big is Lutz?

Back on topic.
As long as Wohojahowsky is on the bench, it remains short.

There is no Boozer or brand type inside player on this team........ Fact.

I could have sworn that Duke won a national title with 6'9" Boozer playing center and played for another national title with 6'9" Brand at center. As always I could be wrong but don't ever bet on it.

2 games and you have the GALL to define the entire season. Kansas won that game in the last 4 minutes, not because of who had bigs or a deep bench. Kansas hit overdrive in their transition and Duke had the wheels fall off at the same time. Duke have their fair share of tall players and Duke has a good, solid bench. Your conclusions are premature and based on supposition. Claiming your negativity as honesty and calling other posters as "delusional" looks suspiciously like the ruse of a pretender. I question your Duke Fan status.

UNC's had better big men than Duke the last 9 games...How many of those games did they win?

Nowhere did I say that it was an NT or fail.
And thanks for avoiding the issue. Pls, only REAL Duke Fans need comment.
