In the NBA All-Star game, Duke was represented by Kyrie Irving, who played for Team LeBron and finished with 13 points, nine rebounds and six assists.
Surprisingly he led the East in rebounding.
It took us a minute to realize that something seemed...different. We haven’t paid much attention to this in awhile but remember the days when UNC had All-Stars all over the league?
Not so much anymore.
The Tar Heels in the league now are mostly journeymen.
It’s true that Duke only had one player in the All-Star game but with guys like Marvin Bagley, Wendell Carter, Harry Giles, Jayson Tatum and Brandon Ingram and others in the league now and Zion OMG Williamson, RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish on the way, odds are Duke will have a few more soon.
