    duke players usually suck at the pro level. this is because Coach K doesn't bring the brothers. Coach Cal brings em in, though

    if you want to see the tats and the rap, you follow Coach Cal. if you want the turtle neck and the acapella singing and dudes who can't be true pros, you hone in on Coach K recruits

    I could see him staying 2...This draft class is so deep that he could easily slip out of the top 10. If he waits a year, he's probably a top 3-5 pick. And it's not like his family needs the money.

    And then you have to remember that they are still debating whether to move the draft age up to 20 in the CBA that's about to be signed. if they do, he's definitely coming out in a loaded draft class and could even stay 3 years.

    Teams are already figuring out too double team him and take him out of the game
    Duke has a good record but teams are battling them

    1. He is pretty much john wall, tyreke and d-rose in college. Can drive past anybody all game long, inconsistent shooter, but hes the guy you want taking the big shot. Interested to see how his shot develops over a full year with duke. Guy can flat out play though, who's the 1st overall pick? Sullinger, barnes, or rivers?

    Got to add Davis from Kentucky and Drummond from Uconn to that list.

    My top 3:

    Anthony Davis (UK)
    Andre Drummond (UConn)
    Perry Jones (BU) don't let the suspension of Jones sway you guys, he was top 3-5 in most mock last season...

    you clearly dont know much about basketball. Drummond is obviously in the adjusting phase as the college game is much different and hard to get used to, especially for bigs. hes already shown progress the last two games and hes projected #1 by nbadraft.net for a reason.

    Rivers I think will stay, as someone said he doesnt need the money im sure Doc or Coach K will convince him to stay if he needs to be convinced.

    He's overrated... Whines about everything on the court, so glad Florida got Beal over him!

    If he develops a decent shot he will be real tough, I think he is much better than the number 1 pick from Duke this past year.
    I think maybe a little more bulk which will come with age, he is more athletic than John Wall and lighter on his feet

    I wouldn't compare Rivers to any of those 3 guys. Wall, Tyreke, and Rose are super athletic high-flyer's...Rose and Wall might be the 2 fastest guys in the league end-to-end. Rivers is quick and has good athleticism, but not like those 3. I consider Rivers more of a skill/finesse guy and will be better outside shooter then any of those 3.

    And 1st overall pick will probably be Anthony Davis. I'd say 70% chance. I'd give Drummond 20% and Barnes 10%... I see it going in that order, 1-davis 2- drummond 3-barnes
