Here’s an article suggesting that Amile Jefferson could be Duke’s unsung hero this year.

Well, maybe.

We don’t think he’s going to be that unsung, honestly. We’re not saying the poets and bards are going to sing songs about Amile centuries from now, but he’s going to be a key factor and mostly likely he's going to draw a lot of praise and attention.
