Kyle Singler Update

Sure, you had a great run with Dean back in the day and you can hold tightly to that. But since he left and starting with the 1999 draft going forward the quality of the pros produced by both schools greatly favors Duke and the quality of players in the league right now isn't even close.
6 out of the top 7 scorers in the league from both schools are Dukies.
4 out of the top 5 rebounders in the league from both schools are Dukies.
7 out of the top 11 assist men in the league from both schools are Dukies.
The best shooting guard in the league from both schools is a Dukie (Henderson or Redick).
The best small forward in the league from both schools is a Dukie (Deng).
The best power forward in the league from both schools is a Dukie (Boozer).
The best center in the league from both schools is a Dukie (Miles Plumlee). The only position up for debate is PG where Irving is averaging 21.7p/3r/6.1a to Lawson's 17.8/3/8.9.
Your past was terrific. Your now isn't so hot. And the gap is going to widen... Duke has Parker projected as a top 5 pick and Hood as a late lottery pick while PJ Hairston is forecast as a late lottery pick all in next year's draft. Next year Duke brings in 3 top 10 recruits (Scout rankings) while you bring in 1.
You should go read an Art Chansky book or something because what's going on right now can't be too fun for you.

Their ceiling is a guy that played less than a dozen games for them...
and has yet to sniff a playoff.

So Elton Brand, Carlos Boozer, Shane Battier, Kyrie Irving, Luol Deng or Mike Dunleavy would not make UNC's top 10.
I am sure there are others, might want to check the stats and salary values.
I think the NBa experst disagree with you.

In the past 15-years, the best pro dook has had in a uniform wouldn't even make UNC's top 10...
but they sure are a helluva supporting cast.
BogeyBoy Jan 24, 12:24 p.m.
And yet in the last 15 years role-player U has produced better pros than UNC.
Maybe Ty Lawson can make the All-Star game next week and give you guys the first selection to have played at UNC in the last 14 years. Or maybe he won't and the count will be at 4 All-Stars Duke has put in the league in the last 14 years to uh.... zero to have come out of UNC in that time.

He gets em to the NBA and they make tons of money.
UNC's legacy. Cheating, lying, deflecting. And this is the entire school.
Deny it all you want but from Raleigh to Cali, UNC is not looked upon favorably. The Carolina Way is dead.
