A Fun Start For Duke Guys In The NBA

New, comment

A really interesting start to the season for some Duke players in the NBA. Incidentally, there's a bit of NSFW language in the Boozer link.

Duke players in the NBA are off to a good start. First there was Justise Winslow's massive dunk for the Heat. Then Jahlil Okafor had 26 in his Philly debut, shooting 10-16 with seven rebounds and two blocks. He did have eight turnovers but it's his first game.

And former Duke forward Ryan Kelly hit a game-winning dunk for the Lakers.

On the lighter side...well Austin Rivers throwing a seat cushion and hitting a lady isn't really funny, but it's certainly off beat. And truly funny, unless you are the referee on the receiving end, is Carlos Boozer celebrating a basket with a fist pump that just happened to finish in the ref's family jewels.

Our bad - we screwed the link up. Here it is.

The ref gets incredible props for standing straight up. On second thought, he's in the middle of a game and is likely wearing a cup.

Even so. That's a big man and a big punch.
