Yesterday we realized that at the worst, one finalist in the NBA playoffs would have a former Duke player and every team left except for Toronto and Milwaukee has at least one former Blue Devil.
What we didn’t realize was, in the context of 15-501, the opposite and it’s a bit shocking even at this late date: there’s only one Carolina guy in the playoffs and he’s not exactly a headliner: it’s Toronto’s Danny Green, a guy who isn’t even starting.
For people of a certain age that seems impossible. There’s no Brad Daugherty, no James Worthy, no Michael. There’s not even a Kenny Smith or a random Wolf brother.
Obviously that’s not to say that UNC’s not still good because it still is. But the massive talent pipeline is not what it used to be.
