    The main concerns with Hurt are going to be strength and defense. It sounds like he is a willing defender but has issues with quickness, especially laterally.

    Last year’s team was (by far) Duke’s worst 3-point shooting team ever (since they invented the 3-point shot, anyway). So I sure hope this year’s team shoots better.

    Yeah it’s only too bad we didn’t have Joey Buckets available last year. If only we could have convinced him to skip his senior yr and matriculate a year early...

    Definitely could have used some shooting last season. 😀
    “Those two kids, they’re champions,” Krzyzewski said of his senior leaders. “They’re trying to teach the other kids how to become that, and it’s a long road to become that.”

    Strength probably, but we'll see if defense is a weakness for Matthew.

    I've scouted him as a quick-reacting, good defender. Now I could be wrong obviously but here are my series of posts about this anyway in case you're interested.

    I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!
    I am excited for this season because if this group can coalesce, it could become a great team. The members of this year's team seem to be closer together in terms of individual talent than in the last few years where there were a few guys with extraordinary talent among other good players which tilted the attack. Teams that can hurt you equally from all positions are harder to defend or prepare for. I thoroughly enjoyed last year to the bitter end, as I do every season. Last year's cast of characters was particularly appealing though. This year's group could be very interesting IF they coalesce similar to the way the 2010 guys did. To me the excitement for the next season can get a bit dulled by a tough end to a great prior season, but by the end of the summer...I'm all in! Let's go! Yes, I know - Alabama etc. first, but then...

    So Hurt is less of a "Moose" and more of a "Mouse"?

    No need to bold; this is DBR, not IC or Rupp Rafters... Vocab words are always understood and appreciated, but then again I might just be a pertinacious homer

    I missed your previous posts on this, sounds promising. I'd settle for not being a defensive liability. And i don't mean that as a knock on Matthew, it is going to be a big ask for him to hang with some of the bodies he will be up against as a 19 year old. I think we are gonna really like his offense. Words used to describe his offense are smart, skilled, and efficient.

    I see him as a definite starter unless he is just getting Iso'd on defense. In which case we might see more Javin in there.

    After the insane hype and the major disappointment of the past 3 seasons, I'm just not psyched up (yet) for this coming year. And maybe that's a good thing. Maybe some of us need diminished expectations to really enjoy the season. Maybe we need to not EXPECT a championship - at least, not to the crazy level that surrounded these previous teams. I hope our guys get a chance to fly (relatively) under the radar, so that we're not totally crushed if they get ousted before the Final Four, and so that we can be wildly ecstatic if they do make it there.

    And no, I have not yet watched the Michigan State game. Nor may I ever.
    Yesterday I realized that I had no clue what this year's team will be like. Are we more likely to witness an Austin River's-type season, or a Tyus Jones-type season?
    We do have the savvy point guard all the great Duke teams feature, but is the supporting cast up to the level of those guys like Scheyer and Tyus had around them?
