    Rival fans told me Jones would suck this year because he wouldn’t have lottery picks around him to make him look good.

    Pro tip: Don’t listen to rival fans!

    It’s so easy to start thinking about 2015 when we watch subsequent Duke teams, even more so now that we have another Jones brother running the show. What sparked a run in 2015 was the balance on offense to have anyone of 7 guys score in double figures while not giving up much on defense. Meanwhile we had 2 steady guards capable of going 40 minutes each. This year we have Tre of course but I’m not sure who plays the role of Quinn. Stanley has shown some Justise-like abilities on offense, but he is way behind on D. Both he and Moore have the room to grow to get us there, but the lightbulbs need to come on now. Vernon is actually pretty similar to Jah. Will any bench player emerge to be like Amile or Matt Jones? Justin Robinson is certainly showing something.
