    Brotherhood Classic

    How great would it be if Duke hosted the Brotherhood Classic for Social Justice and invited teams coached by former Duke players?
    Howard - Kenny Blakeney
    ASU - Bobby Hurley
    Marquette - Wojo
    Northwestern - Chris Collins
    UCF - Johnny Dawkins
    Pitt - Jeff Capel

    Probably not going to happen but that would be a stacked tournament!

    I believe Howard is already in.

    You got something against Tommy Amaker and the Duke of the North?

    I mentioned this possibility on the podcast a few days ago: https://cms.megaphone.fm/channel/duk...=VMP6577787789 Sam said that the winner of the tourney would face the Utah Jazz for the Duke Family Championship. Ha!

    I don't think it will happen the way you envision it because Duke and Pitt won't want to be in the same tourney. Plus, K really does not enjoy facing his former assistants/players.

    As for the notion of Tommy and Harvard, the speculation among many college hoops experts is that the Ivy will be one of the last leagues to approve play during the pandemic and it may not play at all until there is a vaccine. Athletics are a very minor part of what goes on at those schools.
    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.

    If Duke has a "Brotherhood Classic for Social Justice", I'd like Duke to clearly articulate how this tournament is designed to produce social justice and, perhaps, define what they mean by social justice.

    In other words,, "feel good" is not enough for you.

    Knowing Duke, I am sure there would plenty of concrete plans, including things like establishing scholarships or financial aid packages or something like that. Lots of smart people at Duke who can make sure it matters... K and Co usually don’t go in for meaningless gestures

    Why should it be?
