A few of my buddies and I were discussing all-time best Duke teams and all-time favorite Duke players. We thought it would be fun to do a mock draft of Coach K era players to see who could pick the best fantasy Duke team (5 starters and 2 subs). We wanted to get your thoughts on which person drafted the best. The only rules were they had to be a player that played for Coach K at Duke

Team 1
Starters: Irving, Langdon, Deng, Laettner, Zoubek
Bench: Wojo, Hood

Team 2
Starters: T. Jones, Dawkins, Singler, Plumlee, Brand
Bench: Carawell, Amaker

Team 3
Starters: J Williams, N. Smith, Parker, Kelly, Okafor
Bench: N. James, McCaffrey

Team 4
Starters: Scheyer, Redick, G. Hill, Boozer, Zoubek
Bench: J. Capel, T. Hill

Team 5
Starters: Duhon, C. Collins, Maggette, Alarie, S. Williams
Bench: Dunleavy, Q. Cook

Team 6
Starters:Hurley, D. Jones, Battier, Ferry, Parks

You're talking Mason, Plumlee, right?

That Team 6 looks like my pick. Team 2 first runner up.

Zoubek, a guy so nice they drafted him twice.

It's hard to evaluate without knowing the ground rules. Are we talking best season or career? Just Duke or does post-Duke factor in? Imaginary seasons in which Irving is healthy for more than 11 games?

For Team 1, Tyus Jones starting over Tommy Amaker. Really? Not in my World.

That's Team 2.

I had similar thoughts on Team 5. I would start Dunleavy over Collins, Maggette or Alarie.

I am surprised that Roshown McLeod was not drafted ahead of Wojo, Capel, Collins, Alarie, and James.

I also need to know which team Zoubek is really on to give my final opinion. As Jim noted, ground rules would be helpful as well. I think it's a really cool game though!
