    I don't follow KY that much, but would you really have two starters on the all-time team from the last decade? I'm surprised they aren't out-classed by people from the championship teams.

    Honestly, I'm just trying to keep the list relevant. Walker, Prince and Rondo were all on championship teams - it was in the NBA though.

    Maybe we should stick to "Top five from the top 25 years" so we don't get into the impossible debate over whether a Jeff Mullins or Art Heyman could really stay on the court with a Grant Hill if both were in their prime.

    And the answer would also depend on whether we're going by how good players were in college vs. how good they were in their prime years in the NBA.

    IMO, Duke's best of the past 25 years going by how good they were in college:

    PG: Johnny Dawkins
    SG: Jason Williams
    SF: Grant Hill
    PF: Elton Brand
    C: Christian Laettner

    It seems like Ferry should be on there too... but not sure over who. Maybe sub out JD and put Danny at SF? Also very hard to leave off Hurley and Shane, but I don't know you take off for them.

    By how good they were in their prime/NBA years:

    PG: Jason Williams*
    SG: Grant Hill
    SF: Corey Maggette
    PF: Elton Brand
    C: Carlos Boozer

    *I just can't leave off J... even though his career (so far) was cut very short, I'd still take him in his prime over any over our other PGs. POSSIBLY JD, but I thought J had much more potential.

    My take, at least.

    I can't help but wonder if, in some way, you are contradicting yourself within this post.

    Just for the sake of argument...

    let's substitute John Wall and Jamal Mashburn for Delk and Walker. That's a better-looking KY team IMO. I might even pick Dan Issel over Walker.

    Not that it would matter - GTHK!

    What about putting Worldwide Wes on the bench? I hear he's a Kentucky guy now.

    I would probably have to say Pitino. I'd bet that if it came down to a last second shot, he'd probably choose to guard the guy throwing in the ball this time.

    The ex-Dukies by a long shot. Wouldn't be a close game.

    When did DUKE Basketball Report become a UK board? Seriously, the front page is littered with threads about a team we barely ever play. Please, KYtothecore follow the other guests here, Wheat, shoutingncu, crimsonandblue, and pull back the thread starting a little bit.

    Oh, and Duke wins 8 out of 10 and the other 2 games will be vacated.

    Kentucky didn't become the winningest program of all-time without having some pretty good players before 1980. Try Dan Issel on for size. Or Ralph Beard. Or Alex Groza.

    And don't even mention Goose Givens.

    In case you're wondering, the newly published ESPN Encyclopedia has

    Issel
    Givens
    Cliff Hagan
    Ralph Beard
    Frank Ramsey

    V.
    Laettner
    Grant Hill
    Art Heyman
    Johnny Dawkins
    Bobby Hurley

    as the two schools' respective top fives. The interesting thing is we could come up with an alternative top five for both schools with no repeats that would be just as good.

    Bobby Hurley, with those other four, would never have to make a whiney face! Neither would they (well, Laettner might).

    Duke would win for the simple reason that our players are all better looking than theirs.
    And smarter and better dressers and much better dancers.
    No contest

    But Bobby does have two NCAA Championships to J=Will's one. Cannot lose either way. Go Duke!
