Duke 2014-15 

Post#1 » by Marcus » Wed Mar 26, 2014 5:11 pm

Assuming Quinn Cook doesn't make the jump (don't see why he would) does he keep his starting role going into next year or does he lose it to Tyus Jones? Does Jones play off the ball and start next to Cook and if so what does that mean for Sulaimon and Grayson Allen? Does Coach K start the freshmen or go with the experience next year?

It I I he starts cook and brings in Jones very early in ACC play and he takes the job. Might not be idea for Cook who was a very high recruit but Jones looks to be a great fit in Coach K's system even if only for a year

Watching Jabari Parker play for the Bucks, he definitely could have used another season at Duke. But like most highly talked about recruits, it's difficult to pass up the NBA and money. Parker & Okafor would have made a nice tandem.

I like to believe that but I question the cohesion a little. I think this team is ideally built for Jah's block work and PnR play with Tyus. I don't see Bari's more perimeter based ball dominance meshing well with that. I think one of them would suffer from lack of touches. Either Jah doesn't get to work on the block like he's accustomed to and has to work harder on the O-boards for garbage buckets which doesn't suit his strength orrrrr Bari becomes more of a spot-up catch and shoot guy like Justise this year.

I guess they could find a balance or force the ball out of Bari's hands but he would have been coming off a featured role and passing up a top 3 selection to take a step back in his offensive role on this team. Also if dude was getting benched for defense last year he might relive that in a big way when compared to Winslow and how he overall just fits better with the current dynamic coach K has in place.

Winslow fits this team better than Jabari. I never thought I would be saying that but something feels special about this bunch and Winslow's play has shocked me the most.

Tyus Jones is a fantastic addition along with the other freshmen. Okafor is a beast inside and will easily be the #1 pick next year, Winslow has a great motor and excels at the dirty work, so impressed with them so far.

Grayson Allen reminds me of Jeremy Lin but with far more atheletism. Yes or No?

Currently Jeremy Lin, Rex Chapman or Bob Sura comes to mind.
