0:00 Hello, this may be Ep #78 but Sam and Jason explain “the missing podcast” that happened but got trashed before being posted.
2:05 Donald joins us and explains where he has been… Downunder
2:35 Sam launches the discussion about Duke’s roster, those leaving and coming… this could get a bit haphazard.
4:10 We start with Frank Jackson’s decision to enter the draft… Jason seems to have a bunch of intel on this including some speculation about who might take Frank in the draft.
8:30 On to recruiting, our 6-man recruiting class is mostly comprised of kids from Atlanta, GA
12:00 The Trevon Duval conversion begins and Donald compares him to John Wall and (pre-injury) Derek Rose. Wow!
16:15 The conversation turns to the big men. Will Duke play 2 traditional bigs at one time?
21:10 Time for a debate about minutes/rotation. This was inevitable. Sam thinks the bigs won’t play as much as others have predicted.
27:05 Prediction time… who will be our second leading scorer next season? Sam gets a history lesson.
30:55 Sam wants us to talk about the one-and-done trend at Duke. We understand it, we accept it, but we are not fans of it. You can hear the strain and the angst in this discussion.
41:00 Jason says what we need to look at is not the one-and-done players, it is the players who could be here long term but who leave via transfer.
46:30 Sam time travels 10 years in the future and says we will barely remember Jabari Parker, Brandon Ingram, and other one-and-done guys… and that is a shame.
