Best comment EVER!

I nearly fell out of my chair when I started reading that headline. As a UNC fan, my biggest nightmare seemed possible.

And trapezoid, awwwww, poor baby....

Duke sucks. Duke sucks. Duke sucks.

That's good and fine. As I said, I just don't like it when a sport tries to be anything more than a game. Bad things happen.

Ha ha you're an ass, and your headline sucks.

I mean...

oopps, I meant to say:
My point is that you shouldn't paint people with generalization.

Ok, never mind. I was trying to post this.

Damn French trying to ruin a perfectly good sport.

Stubblyhead, NCAA rules say anyone who plays in more than one prep all-star game (McDonald's All American game, for example) is ineligible for one year. Man, the NCAA is blown.

Lebron WILL be good, just not right away. I just know that about this time next year there will be Totalfark submissions that say "Number one pick averages 7.5 ppg. Duck sucks." The two best players in the league -- Kobe Bryant and Tracy MacGrady -- both came to the NBA straight out of high school. Both struggled early in their careers, averaging less than 10 ppg and riding the bench. Now they're averaging 30 ppg, Kobe has three rings and T-Mac is 24, a seasoned veteran and just plain awesome.

Arched, how about Becks to the New York/New Jersey Metrostars.

JerseyTim, I wouldn't say T-Mac struggled early in his career; it's just the asshat Butch Carter wouldn't play him. Where's Butch Carter now? T-Mac was always amazing. He was overshadowed by Vince in Toronto, but he was always outstanding.

Anyone else bothered by the "is expected to end speculation" in the first line of the article? I agree, ESPN is his own personal PR firm.
2003-04-24 06:01:27 PM  
When does the Lebron James flop-o-meter start?
2003-04-24 06:08:56 PM  
In IMPORTANT basketball news, Carmelo Anthony is going pro, too.
2003-04-24 06:12:58 PM  
Will Melo go before Darko? I think he might...

Arched & JerseyTim:

I just saw an interview last night with Beckham and the president of Real Madrid. The quashed the rumor saying financially it was next to impossible to meet Man. U's transfer fee demands. Beckham said he didn't see it happening. What he did say that was interesting was that he really admired how Americans treat sport stars like MJ and Tiger and he would like to be a sports idol in America. So Beckham to the MetroStars might not be so far-fetched. It probably would be later in his career but awesome nonetheless.

BTW-Lebron's coming to the

Lebron won't make it. Just another Kobe Bryant wannabe.

I'm just waiting for some Charles Barkley type to take out his knees. Then he'll be back to "Would you like fries with that?".

For the various posters...

1.) Duke never recruited LeBron, nor does it suck. It's ranked #4 in the nation for academics, just raised $2 billion dollars, and only has about ~7000 kids.
2.) UNC is a safety school.
3.) Even Jordan agrees LeBron won't be a star for a few years. Don't expect too much.

That is all.

hate the Duke cliche, but this one was funny.

Trapezoid: DUKE SUCKS!
2003-04-24 07:14:49 PM  
Thank you BamaTide. There are a lot of nerdy critics out there.

Been a Tide fan all my life. Vols suck.
2003-04-24 07:30:17 PM  
What's the deal, I submitted this after it was already up with a less funny headline, I thought I had this place figured out?

gotta agree with mekka_lekka... on that one. vols do suck roll tide

two words: len bias

Old news, but the headline made me chuckle...hee hee
2003-04-24 09:16:31 PM  
Hey look everyone! It isn't news! YAY!
2003-04-24 11:22:35 PM  
I don't have anything against LeBron, but I think he's gonna get overshadowed by Carmelo Anthony in his rookie year.

In related news, Amare Stoudemire (NOT Yao Ming) is the NBA Rookie of the Year, and appropriately so.

Oh, and....Duke sucks. Feel fee to repeat ad nauseam, because it's not news, it'

I just woke my wife up after I read that! Great job! I was laughing so friggen hard

I dunno who Lebron is, but this Orbitz ad is cool. I just set my pop-up killer to close the page is opens.

Vast: Duke sucks. Deal with it. I don't care how much money they pull in, after all, the only people that can afford a $35,000 a year school are rich kids whose parents can afford to give away a million or two on a whim.

Sure, I don't care if you watch sports. I just hate whatever it is that makes it into such a huge event. I think my point is STOP SAYING DUKE SUCKS. I DON'T KNOW WHO THE HELL DUKE IS AND I DON'T CARE. IF IT WAS FUNNY TO SOMEONE THE FIRST FEW TIMES, IT ISN'T NOW.

Trapezoid: Are you saying you don't know what Duke is? Man, are you out of touch. Seriously, though, a lot of my friends get more into sporting events by knowing stats. Do you also get ticked with the guys like my dad who always fill in the box score at a game, because they like to do so? Go find something better to do with yourself, huh?

What are you, an idiot? Obviously you didn't work hard enough to get into a reputable college, because I know a couple of high school friends who worked their asses off in high school to get into Duke. And, on top of that, they got scholarships. And their parents only make about $60,000 yr/total. So, your so called "theory" of only "rich, bratty kids get into Duke" is really way off. Sounds typical of a so called "Penn State" student (if that's where you went) who couldn't get into Penn.

Before you go on a tirade, make sure you check your facts out and consult someone who lived in NC and actually went to a school near Duke, like me.

Oh yeah... lets talk about LeBron and forget about the Freshman who won MVP and the NCAA Championship... screw LeBron
