I don't really disagree with you, but I do presume that Plumlee will develop into a legit center by 2013-14 (his third year at Duke) and that Jefferson, Hairston and Murphy will be solid at the 4 and 5. I certainly hope that Duke can get Randle, but if the team instead lands Parker (Jabari that is), I will not be disappointed.

Parker) and Hood (almost as good a prospect as Shabazz.)
I am optimistic about the front court players the team already has and their development as well as the possibility of Duke landing another front court player should Randle decide to go somewhere else.
