    I would have to agree. 4 resurrected threads, plus one new one, is very interesting.

    Kendall Marshall's re-surgence in Da League last year apparently caused 903 quite the upset tummy.

    I thought "Kendall Marshall cannot hurt you anymore, dookies"....but apparently I was wrong.

    He continues to hurt them bad. Real bad. Ohboy.

    Wow. This thread is proof that kerliner fans hate facts. They completely ignore what 903 posted and just start throwing insults. That third grade reading level requirement is making more and more sense.

    I have to agree. One new thread, 4 resurrected threads, one going back over a year.

    Absolutely stunning.

    Poor 902.5. It's a shame someone as bitter as him tries to take the fun out of sports for the rest of us. Social media has given punks like him so called power behind the keyboard. Typical young Duke troll.

    Awesome! Resurrecting threads that are over a year old.

    Only thing missing is the "i'm in Hawaii, that is why i am posting at 2 in the morning".

    Poor Duke troll.

    All 903 does is pile up the tears, and moist Kleenex.

    Probably important to note that Williams wasn't a full time point guard. He played the position his freshman year but the next two years Duhon was playing 30 mpg at the point.

    My point is about assists....What good are Kendall Marshall's assists, in the context of college basketball, if they didn't lead to 1 National Championship? (or 2 in the case of Bobby Hurley)...

    Quickly divert to different topic when faced with data. I believe the discussion was on assists and UNC placing an emphasis on assists. I figured the data would quiet that chatter against UNC...

    http://www.sports-reference.com/cbb/leaders/ast-per-g-player-career.htmlWow, not too bad for UNC. 3 in the top 11 for last 16 years.

    Props to Corchiani who finished at 8.37 per game.

    Really?

    http://www.ncaa.com/stats/basketball-men/d1/current/individual/140Tell me which CURRENT UNC player is on that list...then tell me which CURRENT Duke player is on that list.

    Here, let me help you:

    Rank: 44, Quinn Cook - Assists: 122 APG: 5.3

    No UNC player ranks in the top 50 in the nation for assists this year. Nice Try.

    Now, remind me who puts emphasis on assists, again? Dean? Roy? Coach K?

    The Assist has always been highly prized at The Flagship. Dean taught that, and Roy has made sure that tradition lives on.

    Too bad Ryan "Bucky" Kelly didn't care enough to show up for this game.....Lakers might have had a chance to win if he'd played evenremotely interested.

    0 points (0-5 FG) and 2 rebounds in 16 minutes as a starter before he got yanked. smh.

    http://espn.go.com/blog/los-angeles/lakers/post/_/id/38776/dantoni-breaks-down-point-guard-rotationD'Antoni chose to give Farmar an extra day's rest and then start him against the Cavs.

    "Farmar deserves the play," D'Antoni explained, simply.

    That leaves Marshall, who averaged 11.9 points and 11.5 assists while shooting 44.1 percent from 3 in 15 games as a starter, coming off the bench.

    "Kendall needs to right now find his rhythm as a backup to Farmar, and he will," D'Antoni said before the Cavs game. "He’ll get plenty of room. But we just decided to go the other way."

    Marshall had just five points, three rebounds and three assists in 21 minutes against Minnesota.

    "He should be used to it," D'Antoni said of Marshall playing a reserve role. "Everybody in the league is like that. You got to get a niche. That’s what he did in Phoenix, so that’s what he has to do. It’s a little bit of an adjustment, but there’s no way he’s going to play 38 minutes on every team and be able to just have the ball all the time -- not yet. He’ll have to compete."
