    ACC Preview # 12 - Duke

    Overall, a great job by DBR with this qoute summing things up nicely:

    While I am not sure Sophocles would be thrilled by the reference to his masterpiece, I do agree that this edition of Duke basketball has the potential to live up to Duke fans elevated standards. Most fans would consider 22-11 a very good season, we have talked all spring and summer about last year's disappointing season!

    Go DUKE!!!

    DBR wrote all these reviews without knowing where the three point line was going to be? Good job.

    Henderson will be a stud

    In my opinion, Henderson is a huge key to our season and will be our best player. Late last season he was starting to break out and was spectacular at times. I can't believe people aren't talking more about him.

    He'll be good

    I can't believe most starting lineups I've seen don't include him. If he's not a starter then this team has to be really friggin good.

    I made my prediction based on his diagnosis of exercise-induced asthma. Now that we know this was wrong I'll revisit that thread.

    Where is the 3 point line this year? Did they move it back or does that kick in for 2008-09?

    With the range our guys have, do you really think that will make a significant difference?

    I agree. I think Gerald will arguably be our best player and I think he should start. But don't be shocked to see Gerald be the 6th man that plays starters' minutes.

    Misdiagnosis? Where did you hear that? Did I miss something?

    Suggested rule for someone answering this: you're not allowed to say it outright. Because it would ruin the fun. Only use clues the way DBR did.

    I hope you didn't watch those movies on network TV, or else you'll think the answer is (monotone) "Big Falcon"

    Ah, OK, got it. Haha, nice clue. I actually did think of that word, but I thought, "DBR can't be referring to that."

    Yeah, I think the usage of that word to describe bball players grew out of the internet, but that word has become akin to "badass" and every team needs one.
