    I'm normally the same way, but a 67 page thread filled with wishful speculation, Holiday Inn Express-level medical opinion, and outright fan fiction -- one of the biggest embarrassments I've ever seen at DBR -- deserved this playful jab at a minimum.

    I genuinely hope Nolan is OK and isn't hurt longer than this weekend, but Kong's humor is good-natured, all about the fans and not the player, and more than warranted.

    Kong,

    I like your wit and "give and take" on this board so keep it up.

    Except now it's 72 pages.

    Well, that post-game news is not good. We may very well be without Nolan for the rest of the weekend. Dang!

    Agreed. It wasn't in good taste, given that it's related to (potentially) a significant toe injury to yet another star guard.

    Hopefully, Smith's toe doesn't prevent him from missing time. I'm not optimistic about tomorrow if reports are true that he was having trouble leaving the court post-game.

    That really stinks! Unfortunately, the first thing I thought when I saw Nolan's reaction to being examined was that we would not be seeing him again in a Duke uni. Very sad. I sure hope I am wrong.

    Ugh. I hadn't even thought about never seeing him in a Duke uni again. Darn, now I really am depressed. It's just not funny to me.

    Wow, if Nolan cant go, Duke would be playing without the ACC/NCAA player of the year and the #1 pick in next years nba draft. man, am I the only 1 that still thinks Duke can win it all? Im always op"toe"mistic!


    if kong can get 2 pitch forks I should be able to get at least 1!!!

    yep. hopefully he will be okay next weekend. This of course makes it hard to win it all but also takes pressure off the team- so you never know.

    We need a toe by 3 o'clock tomorrow afternoon... with or without nail polish.

    Only if Kyrie comes back and contributes immediately. A Duke team WITH Kyrie, and WITHOUT Nolan is something I had never thought about before tonight. Could be interesting. I think we really need BOTH Nolan AND Kyrie to have a serious chance at a deep run.

    Why didn't we think of this earlier? Walter Sobchak could have gotten us a toe months ago.

    Bravo, by the way.

    If we are without both Irving and Smith, I think it would take a miracle for us to win the NCAA championship. I'm not saying there'd be a zero percent chance, but it'd be getting to that neighborhood.

    Let's just say I'm really hoping the injury to Smith isn't so serious that he misses significant time.

    TV angle didn't show one miserable hole fan clapping for Nolan. Lacking in class, as always.

    And spare me the "oh but there were so many others acknowledging the injury that you couldn't see on TV" cop out.

    it would take close to that to even win the next couple of games. andre, if you ever planned on stepping up on the big stage, now's your time.

    In a serious response to a funny thread...

    GEEZ!
    I have asked myself that question 1000 times. Not only toes, but feet in general... we go back to Grant, Bobby, Elton, Carlos, Zoubs, and many other Duke players who have had serious foot/toe injuries. And these are just basketball players. If we go over to the football side, there have been many more.

    [I'm working on how to put this tactfully...]

    Several of the student athletes have suggested to me that the shoes that our athletic teams wear do not offer tremendous support. Obviously, that is a very touchy subject. Any thoughts?
