I've stated it several times before, but do not mind repeating myself, we are a stepped-up Plumlee away from being an extremely tough team. With both Plumlees improved, we could be almost unbeatable (not that I'm predicting an undefeated season or any such nonsense).
Singler and Smith are a rarity in the current college basketball landscape - star players who are seniors. Their experience will be invaluable. Kyrie Irving provides the fresh young talent element to the formula. Andre Dawkins and Seth Curry will provide talent and energy off the bench in a variety of roles, while the Brothers Plumlee are potentially the icing on a very appetizing cake!
The team will go through some ups and downs as they learn the system Coach Krzyzewski desires to run this season. and, of course, as they develop into a team. It is an understatement to describe my optimism as overflowing.
