        You know Boozer & JJ Redick both wore #4 for Duke. Well, after Redick got arrested for driving under the influence Duke fans were on high alert for Carolina trolls. My friend went to a Duke game shortly after in his #4 Boozer jersey and a guy behind him yelled, “Hey, you think that’s funny? Redick is the greatest player in ACC history!”
