    I know he didnt go there. Give Laettner credit. He is in the top six of the ACC. Thompson, Jordan, Sampson, Bias, Ford.

    You actually think that Laettner was better that Lew Alcindor, or Wilt Chamberlain, or David Thompson?

    Man, you are a genius with the evaluation of UNCheat being better than Duke last year.

    4 #1 picks vs 1 and all of your starters returning.

    How did that preseason NC prediction go for you?

    Did you make the FF? Did you win the NC?

    You calling Kyrie a flop is just you showing your lack of judgement and talent evaluation and hate for all things Duke.

    Good for you.

    Really. I am guessing that is your opinion and since Christian Laettner is known as probably the best college basketball player of all time, Duke has at least one up on you.

    Makes Coach K's ability to win 5 of the last 7 as well as the most recent National Title in the triangle, and being named the best college basketball program that much more impressive.

    I will bring up and put down any dook boy. no problem. none are as good as the players of UNC, past and present.

    he got lucky at UNC and UNC proved they had the better team last year. LEHIGH!

    and once again, this years Kentucky team is nothing compared to the teams of the past few seasons. but congrats if it helps you feel better.

    Someone say Irving???

    ...the injury, a fractured bone in Irving's right hand, occurred when the point guard smacked his hand into the padding of a wall after committing a turnover during practice.BRILLIANT!!!

    Going by reports, Rivers is not 100%. But marked was the one that said "Henson is just working his way back from a knee injury" but failed to mention the same about Rivers before comparing their points or whatever he compared.

    http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nba/1951/austin-riversAustin Rivers set to make return Friday
    Nov 9 - 11:37 AM

    Rivers (finger) returns to action on Friday
    Nov 10 - 3:51 AM

    UPDATE: Austin Rivers tweaks ankle, will play
    Updating a previous item, Hornets rookie Austin Rivers rolled his right ankle in practice Monday, but is still expected to play Tuesday night.
    Good news that Rivers will still be able to play Tuesday, but the point guard's ankle is becoming a serious problem for the Hornets and for fantasy owners holding on to the former Blue Devil. Stash him and see if he gets hot. Nov 12 - 1:09 PM

    Austin Rivers to start for Hornets
    Nov 14 - 7:53 PM

    Rivers has played 29 or more minutes in 4 of the last 5 games. In the game immediately preceeding this one he played 30 minutes.

    http://espn.go.com/nba/player/_/id/6617/austin-riversJohn Henson has missed the last 3 games and had not played since 11/7.

    Nope, just continuing to laugh at your insane posts and comments.

    An NBA failure after less than 10 games. Really????

    So after less than 10 games Rivers is a failure.

    You should have stopped when you made all your predictions about Singler last year and now look what he is doing.

    You are dumb and dumber all combined into one.

    This is complete NBA failure:

    http://www.nba.com/playerfile/kendall_marshall/game_by_game_stats.htmland unlike Henson and Rivers, no injury. 5 DNPs while completely healthy = FAIL.

    Well, his performance at UNC has left one fanbase completely butthurt. or maybe it's the scandal? or the football game? or the victory bell? or the Duke win over Kentucky?

    Poor hurt thing can not stand it that his hero Rivers is an NBA failure.

    How sad for it to compare a fingertip injury to a knee injury.

    Truly comical.

    The sad thing is that Henson is just working his way back from a knee injury Jesus, can you make any posts without using excuses? What a cry baby.

    Did you know Austin Rivers is also coming back from an injury? Funny how you use that as an excuse for Henson but not the player you're trying to compare him to.

    who cares about rivers, he is barely a dook dood and playing at dook did nothing for him. or dook for that matter. (Lehigh) He played in 11 dook games and lost the last one.

    What position do each of them play?

    How tall is Henson and what is his proximity to the basket?

    And btw, we all know if Austin would score alot of points you would find a negative in that also.

    Poor obsessed Duke hater.

    Also notice in the game where Henson played that Hansbrough scored 17, Plumlee scored 2.

    http://espn.go.com/nba/boxscore?gameId=400277831http://espn.go.com/nba/boxscore?gameId=400277832The sad thing is that Henson is just working his way back from a knee injury and has no real playing time at the moment.
