My Army Boys did me proud today of all days(Soft spot for Westpoint through family/friend ties). Was really expecting the Duke boys to literally run them out of the gym but alas no. They stood their ground and played solid Fundamental basketball. They punished most mistakes Duke made but ultimately ran out of steam as Duke's quality shone through in the end(the Big 3 are sure NBA stars). They would surely but an end to the notion they can actually beat a few NBA teams.


Duke are sending the top 2 picks in the next NBA draft. They are loaded especially in the interior with Zion and on the perimeter with Barrett. There are already comparisons between Bron and Zion but Bron did not look this big in high school. The Army team looked discipline but like you said, they did not have the individual quality to see it through.

Don’t mind all these analysts trying to sell shows with their claims that Duke can bear the Cavs or Alabama can beat the Browns.

Sunday Observation :

Ingram is still sucking lol, i dont think he will mesh with a Lebron team in the long run but let's wait and see, however on recent displays Kuzma Hart & Ball seem better complements to James.

Abeg if Daryl Morey wants Melo outta Polk street, Let it happen no need to dance around the albatross, nobody here at homestead down to 3rd ward will shed a tear..

Portland still doing what they do best (beasting before playoffs and meowing during the playoffs grin I kid i kid)

Oh cmon Denver, y'all can do better than that!

They are sending the Top 3 in the draft Bruh. I don't see How Reddish does not go No 3. It's a toss up between the Barret and Zion. Barret I believe is the best player at this very moment however Zion has the better upside. A 40 inch Vert at that weight is simply ridiculous. He needs to shed some weight though(He would I believe) as it would have a distatrous effect on his knees in the long run especially with His style of play.

This is most definitely the most talented bunch of college players Coach K has ever coached and that includes the team of Grant Hill, Laetner and Bobby Hurley. Tre Jones for instance is a sure fire Top 8-10 pick.

Yh those Analysts must be smoking Grass when they made those comments.

Nassir Little (North Carolina) will definitely have something to say about the top 3 draft picks. I think he falls into that category in my opinion but these are mere projections and the season is still early. If all variables remain constant, I think Nassir Little breaks into the top 3.

In this era of one and done, I will not go as far as saying this is the most talented or the best college players coach K has coached when comparing with Laettner, Grant Hill, S. Battier, J.J Reddick. The guys I mentioned spent more than 2 seasons under coach K and they achieved more than Zion and Barrett will achieve at Duke. Maybe the most talented one and done group if you compare with J. Okafor, K. Irving, M. Bagley, J.Tatum, B. Ingram, J. Parker, W. Carter Jr and J. Winslow.

We are not sure how Zion and Barrett will adjust to a 2nd season in college basketball if they were not one and done. Will they stay healthy? will they slump? That being said, I agree those 3 from Duke are one of the most talented in recent times.

If Zion develops a jumper!!! Its a rap!!! I am not sure if he has one because we have seen him under the rim mostly, he has a good handle, can pass and run but I have not seen the perimeter game.

This Durant is just vexing me. You'll see them clogging the paint and you'll still chook head inside. Why can't u just shoot 3s.
Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 6:18am On Nov 13, 2018
That Caris LeVert injury though. Jeeeeez! It looks even worse than Hayward's. Kai Kai Kai that dude would be out for a long time. And he was having a solid season. Damn shame
Re: The NBA Begins by KNIGHTBlaed(m): 6:23am On Nov 13, 2018

Where is that Lonzo Ball boy? DeAaron Fox is fast starting to make him look like a joke

And Markelle Fultz grin grin. His shooting looks like a 2K glitch. And I've watched players a lot of players with weird and ugly J's like Shawn Marion, Tayshaun Prince, Andre Miller but this one takes the cake!! what the hell happened to his shooting?

Markelle process is gonna be long bro, straight up.. Maybe 2-3 years he will get his mechanics right but this na training season for him!

Lonzo just doesnt look like a pure shooter , his forte should be 3pts, assists and rebounds but he seems too laid-back, anyway with time right?

Fox has definitely improved especially in his drives to the rim, Joerger is really cooking smth down there.

Warriors lose to the clippers after a lot has stake money on the warriors to win.is it just me,the nba look staged to always favour the bookies.if my assertion is true,then the league is just a rigged fraud meant to create wealth in a cunning way for some select people.

Draymond was in his usual donkey mode. I'm surprised nobody is calling him out for the rubbish he has been serving thus far. I like as KD change am for am

When even your shooting coach begin dey deny you then there is problem. I just hope he wouldn't be too psychologically damaged before that time. Social media is wild and nobody get any chill these days

The Kings are bubbling with young talent who seem to be improving at the same time. They just got Bogdanovic and on his debut dropped 22 off the bench. They have remarkable scoring depth and have been really efficient scoring the ball. No one saw them coming
