Sark wrote:I never trust players from Duke. How's Brandon Ingram doing? How about Jahlil Okafor? Historically so many of their players end up as busts. Even Grant Hill, for as great as he was, still was somewhat of a let down with the Pistons. He never had that drive that they needed in the post Isiah era. Laettner, Hurley, etc. The list goes on and on.
Is there a top 50 player all time that played at Duke? Is Hill considered top 50?
Don't confuse injuries with being a let down. Grant Hill was a top 10 player with the Pistons, maybe even better than that. Go look at his stats again. And the Pistons were winning. If he hadn't gotten hurt he CLEARLY would have been a top 50 player. Did you watch Hill play with the Pistons? He was an absolute terror. Also, Ingram has been playing much better of late, and can you really say you have a clue how his career will go after just 60 games? Okafor was put in a TERRIBLE situation, and even he is playing better of late. Historically, actually, most of the Duke players have very long, solid careers, with some stars mixed in (Kyrie, Brand, Boozer, Hill). Hurley got seriously injured, and Laettner made an all star team and played 13 seasons.
