The general perception is that the Duke-Butler rematch has lost some luster and maybe it has. But keep this in mind: Ronald Nored and Shelvin Mack are superb defenders, and Butler is pretty good at getting their own pace.
Our question is simple: how will Kyrie Irving do when facing two older, stronger, superb defenders? It's an interesting question, and not entirely one of footspeed. Nored is a genius at getting his hands on the ball. We'll see how things go. That should be interesting.
