    Paige consider in All-American discussion? Sounds like the local "lets get a Tar Heel to leave early" faction is working already.

    You forgot the part when Roy coached the breaks of K.

  • vt94hokies Feb 28, 2014

    Paige has greatly improved his game lately. He needs to become much stronger and hit the weight room. He would benefit by staying another year at UNC.

    McAdoo's stock was probably higher a month ago; he's proven to be inconsistent recently IMHO. The silver lining to his recent play is that he may consider coming back for his senior year. Whatever he decides, I wish him the best - he seems like a great young man.

    I don't see Paige being anywhere near ready for the NBA. I think he's more of a four-year player as education is important to him as well as basketball.

  • Toddler10-21 Feb 28, 2014

    Yeah that's true. Cook is better than that. He can play defense. He can scores, and penetrate. I don't know what his problem is. I noticed that he was sulking on the bench again va tech. He is better than that. If he keeps sulking he will stay there. Thornton should be backing him up. Thornton plays because K has no other choice with cook acting the way he is. Thornton was exposed against Unc. McDonald is too big, and Paige is quick. Probably a good kid but he and a lot of duke fans think he is better than what he is.

  • 903 Hail Providence Feb 28, 2014

    We lost but it wasn't because of Thornton. Sulaimon was cold, Hood's early foul trouble, then Parker's foul, trouble, then Amile's foul trouble. And if Paige couldn't be stopped it wasn't solely Thornton's responsibility to stop him. Cook had something to do with that too. Why do you think Coach K doesn't start Cook in the first place? It's because his defense is quite frankly awful. He has to start Thornton for that reason alone...what offense he gives up in playing Thornton over Cook he more than makes up for in his ability to defend and Cook's in-ability to defend...

  • Toddler10-21 Feb 28, 2014

    Noticed you said except the Unc game. Wasnt that the one you lost? Couldn't handle McDonald or Paige in that one. Cook had 17. In the dance you will need a point that can penetrate, dish, and finish not just jack up lucky 3's that sometimes fall in. Ennis had some wide open looks that didn't fall. It wasnt because of your defensive stopper. What happened when wells and smith last year? All I remember is him running to the bench because he was exposed! 2010 duke won it all with way less talent, but they had a heck of a point guard!

    "So are Kentucky freshman Andrew Harrison"
    A little off topic... But for the longest time I've been a big UK fan. I simply hate what JC has done to that program.

  • JPack Feb 28, 2014

    Problem for McAdoo is that each year his stock seems to go down. He is digressing rather than progressing. He's not NBA ready now, but if current trends continue and he stays, he'll be playing in the Italian league. His freshman year, I was blown away by his potential. Now I see him occasionally step up and then just as quickly fade into the background.

    It doesn't matter what you think. Coach K's started him the last 9 and they've played their best ball of the season over that span except the UNC game. 17 min 9 pts at Cuse, 25 min 8 pts vs Cuse at home. and when he isn't scoring, he's racking up steals and assists... They'll need Cook but they really need them both.

  • Toddler10-21 Feb 28, 2014

    Wanna bet? Duke will need Cook in the dance. Thornton will get exposed, (Dez Wells acc tourney, Russ Smith in the dance).

  • Ken D. Feb 28, 2014

    I think if Paige were going to actually have a draft stock we'd have noticed by now. I don't believe he shows up on mock draft boards. One of the things that made him such an attractive recruit was that he was likely to be a four year player.

    UNC alums should see the current issue of Business Week. The cover story is all about UNC's lack of academics. It is sickening what UNC athletics has done to the reputation of that school.

    Thornton isn't as good as Paige so I don't think he'll have a future in the NBA. But Coach K doesn't need NBA starters at every position to get his team in a position to contend for Final Fours or National Titles. He can do it even with Thornton as his starting point guard...

    and yet it's UNC (not Duke) that had one player get suspended forever and another get suspended for a bunch of games this season...

  • jmcdow2792 Feb 28, 2014

    I hate to see all these players leaving early. It certainly hurts college ball and in a lot of cases is not the right thing for the player. The money can't be that good for a player who goes and then doesn't make it.

    Dook is the one who pays its players.

    Sad.

  • dooksucks001 Feb 28, 2014

    Paige does not have the NBA body yet to leave early.

    McAdoo's stock was much higher at the end of last season than it is now.

  • Toddler10-21 Feb 28, 2014

    903 maybe the Knicks will pick Tyler Thornton to fill their point guard role?

  • danielleunc Feb 28, 2014

    Have there been rumors that McAdoo wants to leave? Absent those, I don't see what evidence there is that he is likely to go. He's projected as, what, like the 40th pick? He has passed on the draft in the past, and maybe-second-round doesn't exactly seem like a compelling reason to go, now.

  • 903 Hail Providence Feb 28, 2014

    I know one of the New York teams is currently looking to upgrade their point guard...

    The real question will be, can UNC pay him enough to stay?
