    Kyrie's shoe sales just got a boost

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    I would call this evidence of a confidential $ settlement between Nike, Zion and Duke.

    Could Nike have scripted a better timeline since the injury?

    Will there ever in the history or future of sports be more attention paid to the shoes an athlete is wearing?

    omg omg omg omg omg omg omg...

    What a great day!

    As a basketball fan, Zion is unbelievable. As a college basketball fan, Zion is a hope of light. As a Duke basketball fan, Zion is the most incredible human in the galaxy. I would think about giving up one of my future children to watch him dominate for the next 9 games.

    Okay.

    Serious(ish) question: can I root for UNC because I want SOOOOOO BADLY to watch Zion mop the floor with that DISGUSTING shade of blue tomorrow night, ending any sort of fairy tale idea Heel fans might have that their team can hang with our full roster this year?
    I'll put it like this, I won't be upset if Louisville loses tonight.

    Have to say, kids will be kids and it’s probably bad form for the girl to expose him like that. But glad to see Zion is well and good.

    Totally idiotic question here but aren’t the Kyries made for guards?

    Kyries signature feature are treads that ride up the side of the shoe. More applicable for guards who stop on a dime, but also 280 lb ballerinas who stop on a dime.

    A. It is always wrong to root for them.

    B. Even tomorrow we will not be at full roster strength, as Bolden will not be playing. How quickly we forget!

    Oh, I know we don't have Bolden. But thumping them with Zion and no Bolden would destroy their fantasy of beating us at full strength. Which, we could of course do in a few weeks anyways.

    Thanks for the answers. I admit part of me wants to see Zion hang 50 on the Tar Heels.

    Without knowing if there was any conversation before that line or if that was his opener I'll go ahead and say that is one of the worst pickup lines I've ever heard, which is saying something because I've heard my own. Incredibly tacky for her to post it online though (although you have to know someone from unc is likely to jump at a chance to roast a Duke player). Show it to some friends, have a laugh, and move on.

    I'm going to get controversial and say that Kyrie's shoes are...not very good looking. I'd never really paid attention before but can't say I'm a fan.

    ???

    I'd say the one thing about them is they are gorgeous and really creative!

    As someone who wore Kyrie 1s for 3 years (for basketball purposes), I do not like them at all (I'm a 4/5 who cannot stop on a dime). I now wear Kobe's and they are sooooooo much better/more comfortable.

    On further review after some googling, I think I just don't like the all-whites Zion is wearing. Other color schemes look much better.

    I believe I could be satisfied with a 50-50 split of our games with uNC this year...

    Pretty sure I should just watch that last game from a hospital. No chance in hell I survive without a heart attack.

    The basketball gods have spared us. With the success both teams have had, it seems more likely than not to have happened at least once.

    At face value yes, but two teams from the same conference have only made the championship game twice (since expansion to 64) so it is maybe a little less surprising. Interestingly, it is fairly routine for 2 teams to make the Final Four (although some of those years they might be on the same side of the bracket which prevents meeting in the championship game).

    IIRC there have been two times we've been close to facing them in the FF. One was 1991, when Kansas beat them in the semis on the other side of the bracket.

    I can't remember what the other was.

    It was 1999. Duke won the East Regional. Carolina had a clear shot to win the West Regional, but lost to Weber State in the first round.

    I hope the seams have been double super-glued! For Zion's sake and Nike's stock price.
