    Shav only made a few million playing in the league and is now making additional money playing in China. Ask yourself, "how much did I make by the time I was 30?". I'd say that's not too bad in our recent economy.

    I believe Shav is currently signed to a team based in Puerto Rico.

    Undrafted out of Duke, Randolph managed to parlay a series of short-term contracts into 783 minutes in the NBA. He did suffer a gruesome leg injury. But it's awfully hard to spin his NBA career as anything less than a disappointment based on his reputation coming into Duke.

    Actually, it seems Shav is busy tearing it up with the Leopards over in China.

    Thanks for the correction. He signed with Gallitos de Isabela of Puerto Rico earlier this year. Didn't last long.

    It's interesting to see so many familar names in the article cited. Remember when Randolph Morris and David Harrison were can't-miss-prospects? Former UNC signee J.R. Smith is there. And lots of other names. I guess the popularity of pro hoops in Chinca is partly a Yao Ming legacy.

    Yeah, I just happened to see this a few days ago over at TDD. And yeah, reading overseas basketball reports is like a who's who of familiar-but-not-totally-famous names

    awhom111 has been doing a very nice rundown in the Dukies in Europe, etc thread. He's had reports on Shav in China. It's a good read.

    with a WHOLE lot of help from Nike - dating back to MJ and punctuated by Kobe. The Chinese seem to adore Nike and all things promoted by them.

    Any truth to Randle being at the game today?

    Randle was at the game behind the bench.

    Nerlens Noel

    Does anyone know if we're involved with Noel still? I've heard his name and Duke mentioned together previously, but not in a while. As expected, he was quite impressive over the weekend. He would look pretty good CIS.

    I believe Duke's contacts with Noel were not encouraging.

    Thanks, Sir. That's what I figured given the lack of chatter.

    The list had Duke involved with the following:

    1. Parker (offer)
    3. Randle (offer)
    20. Jones (committed)
    52. Nichols (no offer)

    Anyone know of others in the Top 100 we are after?

    That's the first time i've heard of Nichols but I just looked up a coupld videos of him and he looks like he has some decent hands for being a big man, he seems like a very good shot blocker, and he showed a little mid range game as well.

    Thanks Super!
    Those are the four names I've heard in the past, but I'm sure there are others with whom we are in touch...
    Any of our "insiders" able to point out any others? Boy, you do see right away the reputation for the 2012 class being better/deeper among the bigs being proven out. A lot more 1's and 2's in this class top-100 I think. Only four 5's in the top 50 overall (though to be fair there are 15 PF's in the top-50)..
