    Duke.

    Still think that if we replace Knox with Zion and roll with basically the same team next season, we will be able to handle them.

    Kentucky.

    We stole Knox from Duke under the same exact circumstances last season. And we will handle them regardless.

    If Barrett picks Duke, then he hates making lots of NBA money and having a prolonged career in the league.

    The last great Dukie, Grant Hill, will be applying for Medicare next month

    Granted you're mostly right, and I'm not his biggest fan, but Kyrie has to be considered great, even if he was there for 12 games or whatever.

    The overall point stands though. UK has a phenomenally higher chance at putting you in position for a second NBA contract.

    Or maybe Kyrie Irving improved by not fully playing for K

    Just like you kept on saying Murray was going to Oregon also. That Brian Bowen would commit to Kentucky after Knox went to Duke..

    The story mentioned Kentucky first, so Kentucky it is.

    And Barrett retweeted this yesterday:



    You people still holding out hope for a Kentucky commitment tomorrow, please don’t toxify the forum by flinging your s**t like enraged chimps for the next month.

    There was nothing in that video that even gave a hint as to where he will go. I just hope it is UK. If not UK Oregon.

    Sure. There’s still hope we land Keldon Johnson and Zion Williamson.

    I have a feeling that Johnson's "95% sure he knows where he's going" is because he's 95% sure Barrett is going to Duke (as he should be, imo), and his spot is assured here in Lexington.

    That wouldn't bother me a bit if that happens and I'd be very happy with adding those two.

    If a player has that Duke mentality, by all means, that's where they need to go. UK doesn't sign pussies. :thumbsdown:

    Love to have Barrett, but Williamson is the guy I think we can't win a title without (if the guys we think leave, leave that is).

    Looking through his Twitter likes it seems like he really focuses on Duke players/announcements

    It's remarkable how much Duke rips off The Kentucky Brand time and time again without even trying to cover it up.

    Not for everyone.

    Am I mistaken or has Barrett worn the #1? If so, did you notice in that pic that Reddish and Jones are wearing #s 2 and 3.................
