After the smear campaign against platooning, I sure hope this is getting discussed on the recruiting trail too. Giles played all of 9 minutes in Duke's loss, three rebounds, a block, and no points. Didn't even take a shot. Kids, you're more likely to be a Giles or a Bolden at Duke than a Tatum or Okafor. I feel for the kid. In no way should he have played this season. Even if he wanted to, he should have sat out. Sometimes you have to protect someone from themselves. Of course every kid wants to get out there and play, but when we're talking the difference between 6.5 million (the guaranteed money for the 5th pick of the draft) and 1.6 million (20th pick), someone has to think of the kid's future for him. If your kid had Google already begging to pay him $6.5 million, you wouldn't let him take an unpaid internship where you might find out he can't code as well as you thought. I know we all have our opinions on what a players first program is, but this is what it's supposed to do: not screw up your chances at being generationally rich. Giles chances took a huge hit this season for absolutely no other reason than Coach K's ego.
