I don't like his style of play, and I think his lateral quickness is poor. Still, he is a talented player who will play 4 years for Duke, will likely end up a coach some day, and can be a role player on an NBA team.
    He was expected to be good comming into Duke, sure. but exactly how does that translate into his being " overrated" today. The media and sports announcers rip on his all the time. His lateral quickness isn't poor at all. His lateral decision making is terrible however.

    He will deffiently be a 4 year player for coach K.

    WHo cares about what he will do in the the NBA? The NBA sucks.

    What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
    they get smoked.

    • I think he was expected to do more for the team this year than he did. I'm not saying that was a fair thing to do. I'm just stating reality. Duke has a tradition of always being a top top team. With that tradition comes the pressure. I don't think Paulus could have done much more than he did. Being on Duke and being a 2 year starter, he is expected to lead the team to glory and top seeding. It is part of being a player on that team for that coach.

      • Anyone seen this yet? It's called "This is why you suck" and it's about Duke Basketball. It's absolutely hilarious. No disrespect to the Dookie fans on this board but it's really funny IMO. Check it out. The video is to "This Is Why I'm Hot" by Mims. I think you guys will enjoy it.

                • Interesting article on Michael Beasley, I love him as a player and think he would go top 5 this year if there wasn't an age rule and I even like him better than Durant for the SF position but I never knew how immature he was this article really shows it, I always wondered why he got kicked out of Oak Hill, I mean he seems to have the mind of a 13 year old not good, I am sensing Ron Artest part 2:http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...1101466_2.html
                  Highlights:
                  -Said the NBA age rule is dumb and 1 year at Kansas State is just to "kill time"
                  -Has been kicked out of multiple schools going to 6 schools the past 4 years.
                  -Was kicked out of Oak Hill Academy for "playing too many pranks"
                  -"Beasley said nobody gave him an exact reason for his dismissal, but he guesses that Oak Hill grew tired of his pranks. He wore pajamas to the school cafeteria. He threw sticks at teachers' houses. He snuck out of his dorm after curfew and organized games of hide-and-go seek"
                  -"So, with two weeks left in the school year, Smith offered his star player one final chance: He told Beasley that, to be invited back to Oak Hill, he needed to impress administrators with flawless end-of-year behavior.

                  Two days later, Beasley signed his name in black ink on the principal's truck, Smith said.


                  "He'll definitely try your patience," Smith said. "You look at him physically and he's a full-grown man, and you think he's going to make good decisions all the time. But a lot of times, he just didn't."
                  "At a practice here in Fitchburg last month, Barton gathered his players to give them a scouting report on an upcoming opponent. In less than 24 hours, the team played one of its most important games of the season. Barton stood still, with a basketball under his right arm, and talked quietly. "Pay attention, 'cause this is important," Barton said. His players leaned in to listen. Then Beasley started shouting.

                  "Hey coach, pass the ball!" Beasley yelled. "Come on, coach. You're being a ball hog, yo. Pass it. I'm open."


                  Teammates laughed, and Barton shook his head. Over the last six months, Barton had decided mainly to ignore Beasley's childishness. He finished his scouting report and divided his players into two teams for a shirts-against-skins scrimmage. As Beasley pulled off his cotton T-shirt to play for the skins, he danced across the court.

                  "I'm naked! I'm naked!" Beasley yelled. "Look, coach. I'm naked!"

                  • Sounds like a typical Bob Huggins recruit to me. Probably the second coming of Deshaun Stevenson...

                      • What an ass that guy is. I'd never even try to recruit him no matter how good he is

                        • Ok, I only have about an hour until turn in. I'm feeling pretty good about my bracket, but there are still a couple that I'm undecided about.

                          Indiana-Gonzaga, I have Indiana, but I think Gonzaga might be able to do seomthing

                          Marquette-Michigan State, I know plenty about both teams but I find it hard to choose. at this point i don't have anyone down. If McNeal were to play I would take Marquette easy, but now I don't know.

                          Illinois-Southern Illinois, I think Illinois can do it but it is a big risk. If I pick S. Illinois, then if they lose not a big deal, if they win still not a big deal. If I pick Illinois and they lose, I'll will fall behind because almost everyone will pick Southern, If they win then I should be able to pull away wuite a bit. I'm mainly looking for sweetness to add anything else he has here.

                              Illinois is playing Virginia Tech not the Southern Illinois, I believe Southern is playing Holy Cross.

                                Second round;) that's why it's such a risk.
