Sorry if already posted but here are a couple of interesting tweets from Austin:
"I wanted to wear the family number 25, but it's retired at duke! So I went with 0, 1 is still a possibility but that all depends on Kyrie!"
"1 is a slim possibility tho"
Let the speculation begin before the season does.
Here's a link for anyone wanting to see the source material.
He also says:
I'm wearing #0 cause once i get to college everything that i have done doesn't matter, It's a fresh start back to ground ZERO! Must destroy!
In a previous article or twitter post Kyrie had said he would stay if Rivers came to Duke. Hopefully this stays true
I'm guessing K has approved of this? In previous interviews, K has said that he likely would never allow anyone to wear #0 but I'm sure Austin has already informed him of his plans.
Ozzie, your paradigm of optimism!
Go To Hell carolina, Go To Hell!

That would be ridiculous talent...
his shot attempts should be called "none chucks".
his box score stats should be "the nil set".
the filthy zilch.
if diablo zero, it would probably have to be diablo cero, to keep the language consistent but i like it.
If I were Art Heyman and a young man of River's stature asked politely for the honor of using my retired jersey number, I would certainly give it serious consideration.
IMHO, I don't think we should put a whole lot of weight in the "he'll stay another year to play with so and so" argument, except maybe in unusual circumstances like the Plumbros. Fans (myself included) get excited when guys say things like that, but as much as we'd like to believe otherwise, in the final analysis of whether someone is going to leave college early for the NBA, I think it's almost entirely a financial decision.
I do think that the opportunity to win a national championship is somewhat of a pull for a lot of guys, but the opportunity to play with a particular incoming freshman is not.
