    c'mon. At least put something relevant in the thread title.
    It's being reported that due to coronavirus fears, Harvard has asked students not to return from spring break, and for classes to be held online.

    Not to be outdone, UNC told students to stop coming to class 27 years ago under Dean Smith.

    It's in the board decorum to provide context to links:

    Hey, it's the standards of DBR and he's right to take ownership of said standards. I thought the link was gonna be to an article on a definitive timeline for Wendell's return.

    That was my concern. Given Wendell's situation, this could easily apply to him, which makes the title very click-baity.

    I get the excitement about Zion (heck, I'm still trying to find a time to go see him play in the league!), but this board is still primarily focused on the current duke team, and as such, it seems reasonable to assume a post like this would be about a current rather than a former player. Normally a former player returning from injury in the league wouldn't warrant a stand-alone post to begin with, as we have a dukies in the NBA thread.

    I assume the thread title has been changed, but now I'm left wondering what it was originally because the entire thread has been almost exclusively about the old title. Was it just "He's Baaaacckkk ..." instead of "Zion's Baaaaccckkkk ...?"

    This is actually a meta-thread -- just discussion about thread format, not about the substance.

    Well, I for one am shickled titless by the news. Zion's been the most fun I've had watching a basketball game in a while and I'll be tuning in to a lot of Pelicans games just to watch him. I can't say that for any other recent NBA player save for play-off Lebron, Steph, and KD.

    In addition, Pelicans have changed their tune on minutes restrictions and are now saying Zion will not have any.

    Tuesday 01/22 does not exist.

    It's actually Wednesday 01/22 at home vs San Antonio.

    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.

    All of Zion's college games were available on TV nationally but most of his NBA games won't be. You get better TV exposure playing at Duke than you do playing in the NBA.
