    My fellow UNC Grad, i don't think we should mention the word "zone defenses" while talking junk to our rivals.

    Remember that egg we laid with our "HOF" coach? (lol).

    No, because Lebron (not LeBron) plays the 4... The other guys aren't true centers either.

    I was unaware that the shot clock was changed, and zone defenses are disallowed in the NCAA.

    zones are allowed in both leagues but not used very often in either with the exception of a Cuse team and a few Big 10 teams. No NBA teams play zone because the shooters are too good. and with the new rules points of emphasis to eliminate hand checking in college, the shot clock being decreased is the next change that will be proposed and passed since it's more like the NBA already.

    Because i stated facts about the past 25 years? This sounds like something my UNC Wal-mart fans would say. Don't worry my brother, things will get better for us once Roy is gone. Trust me.

    Wow... Zone defense was outlawed in the NBA in 1947, Jan 11, to be precise.

    You might want to brush up on those details, before you sound more like that supposed heelgrad....

    Here's one fact that I know you are wrong. I am in no way affilated with UNC.

    My Kid may go to State, but I can forgive her for that. (it is a better engineering school)

    Perfect School for Engineering. I don't understand why you attack me. Have you never seen an honest UNC man before? I'm just stating facts by the way.

    You stated I was a UNC grad. That is a slap to my face. So... who (you) attacked who(me) first, and who(me) defended himself against the slander?

    You called me a troll for stating the fact that Duke is hands down the best program the last 25 years in basketball if you go by facts. Just because I am a UNC fan doesn't mean I am not fair to the truth or put blindfolds up. I am a proud Grad, but I am an honest Grad first.
