    ...with 10,193 points scored, Duke led all college programs in NBA scoring for second straight year.

    ...Duke has 19 active NBA players and 10 alums in the 2013 NBA playoffs and only six schools have more than 10 NBA players total.

    ...the highest 2012-2013 NBA salaries are as follows: Duke- $96.4 million, UConn- $75.4 million, Florida- $61.9 million. Duke has led in salary in seven of the past nine years.

    ...Duke has had six different players selected to the NBA All-Star Game since 1995, tops among all schools.

    ...Coach K's former players will have made over $1 BILLION in NBA salary, the most of all time.

    Something ain't adding up.

    It was pretty hilarious actually. He said that he has his own Sports Blog that he runs and that he actually talks sports on it and doesn't just troll around like a pathetic fanboy all day. But of course, this was all just a giant lie and once I called him out on it and asked him to produce the URL or link, he backed out (no shock). As you can see above, he still can't admit to the truth. Poor guy.

    The result is the same but the process and the skills involved are much different. Drafting and developing talent requires a lot more patience and long term planning that simply throwing around enough money to lure the best players to your team. ANd let's be serious here. A team consisting of LeBron James, Chris Bosch, and Dewayne Wade could win if the rest of the team consisted of AAU players.
