  1. Brooklyn Nets taking training camp to Duke campus

    Aug 28, 2013, 11:17 AM EDT

    Duke University Rape Investigation Continues

    Well, Durham is much greener` than Brooklyn this time of year. No team may have more eyes on them this preseason than the Brooklyn Nets, who went out this summer with a “luxury tax be damned” attitude and added Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Jason Terry and Andrei Kirilenko to a roster that already had 49…

  2. Jay Williams says he attempted suicide after motorcycle crash that took his career

    Feb 9, 2013, 9:41 PM EDT

    Jay Williams

    It was one of the NBA’s most discussed tragedies — No. 2 pick of the Chicago Bulls Jay Williams, a college legend and a guy who after one season looked like a rookie with potential at the point, crashed his motorcycle, destroyed his leg and never played again. Nearly a decade removed from the accident,…

  3. Grant Hill says what Nash did like going from Duke to North Carolina

    Sep 19, 2012, 11:13 AM EDT

    steve nash-grant hill

    Grant Hill left Phoenix for Los Angeles, but nobody in the Valley of the Sun really holds that against him because he’s going to the Clippers and, while they certainly will be good, nobody really hates them yet. Everyone kind of shrugs at that move west. Steve Nash going from the Suns to the hated…

  4. Krzyzewski helped push Shane Battier toward Miami

    Aug 29, 2012, 12:20 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Shane Battier is an NBA champion, and there may be no other member of the Miami Heat team that seemed to savor the experience of the finals and winning than the veteran forward. But it was Battier’s Duke connections that helped guide him to Miami. When Battier was a free agent following the lockout, he…

  5. Quote of the Day: Battier gets more Duke hate than Heat hate

    Jun 21, 2012, 6:59 PM EDT

    shane battier Mike Krzyzewski

    “Anti-Duke. Way more, way more. It’s a small school. I go to New York or Los Angeles, Chicago, D.C., big cities, I get some Duke love. But other than that, no Duke love.” —Shane Battier, when asked if he hears more hate for Duke or the Miami Heat.

  6. Coach K complains about one-and-done rule. Shocking.

    Apr 17, 2012, 3:03 PM EDT

    Michigan v Duke

    Know this about Mike Krzyzewski — he likes to be in control of things. He may not be obsessive and overbearing about it like some coaches, but he likes things done his way. And when it comes to college basketball and the one-and-done rule, he has no control. Nobody does. John Calipari may have figured…

  7. Doc Rivers is good with his son leaving Duke for NBA draft

    Mar 28, 2012, 8:30 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    Most parents are not thrilled when their child decides to drop out of Duke. Doc Rivers is the exception. The Celtics’ coach said he is good with his son Austin deciding to leave Duke after his freshman year to enter the NBA draft. From the Associated Press. Doc Rivers said on Wednesday that Austin was…

  8. Report: Austin Rivers leaving Duke to enter NBA draft

    Mar 23, 2012, 11:52 AM EDT

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Lehigh v Duke

    This is not really a surprise to anyone, it’s just going to lead to a lot of speculation about how he can land on the Celtics. Austin Rivers, the freshman starting point guard at Duke and son of Celtics coach Doc Rivers, is going to sign with an agent and declare for the NBA draft,…

  9. USA Basketball coaches suddenly have extra time to prepare for Olympics

    Mar 17, 2012, 7:29 PM EDT

    Krzyzewski & Kobe Bryant

    Jim Boeheim should be nervous. Let’s just say, I’m not betting on Syracuse next week. It’s been a tough week for three of the four coaches that will lead Team USA this summer in the 2012 Olympics in London — Mike Krzyzewski, Mike D’Antoni and Nate McMillan. Head coach Krzyzewski’s Duke Blue Devils screwed up…

  10. Kings pick up Keith Smart as assistant coach

    Nov 16, 2011, 3:32 PM EDT

    Keith Smart Stephen Curry

    Hey — actual basketball related news! Enjoy this post for the diversion from the lawsuits and foolishness. Keith Smart, let go as head coach of the Golden State Warriors after one season, has been picked up to be an assistant coach on Paul Westphal’s staff in Sacramento, reports the Sacramento Bee. He joins 12-year NBA…

  11. Latest NBA player exhibition game: North Carolina vs. Duke

    Nov 7, 2011, 6:19 PM EDT

    North Carolina Duke

    We’ve had seemingly every other kind of pro-am and charity game featuring NBA players during the lockout, why not go back to some classic college rivalry games. Like North Carolina alumni vs. Duke alumni. It’s happening, according to Blue Devil Nation (via Dime). It’s called the “Kings of Tobacco Road” game and is set for…

  12. Top Cavalier picks decide to continue college courses rather than go overseas

    Aug 29, 2011, 3:04 PM EDT

    Hampton v Duke

    According to Scott Sargent of Waiting For Next Year, the Cavaliers’ top two picks have chosen to stay on their respective college campuses for now rather than go overseas in search of a payday. Here’s the story: “Just picked out my classes for this fall,” tweeted one Kyrie Irving, first overall pick in the 2011…

  13. Are Cavaliers taking a risk with taking a Duke player No. 1?

    Jun 23, 2011, 1:47 AM EDT

    Arizona v Duke

    For the last couple decades, Duke has been the best, most consistent college basketball program in the nation. They have the Final Fours, the NCAA titles to prove it. And they have sent a lot of players on to the NBA. But Duke players have not thrived at the next level. In fact they have…

  14. Kyrie Irving is a deserving No. 1 pick

    Jun 22, 2011, 9:54 AM EDT

    Michigan v Duke

    Kyrie Irving will be the No. 1 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. But he wouldn’t have beaten out John Wall for the top spot last draft. Or Blake Griffin for the top spot two drafts ago. Or Derrick Rose three drafts ago. Or… It has some fans wondering is Irving a deserving No. 1…

  15. Kyrie Irving says if not for Tournament he would have returned to Duke

    Jun 14, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Hampton v Duke

    Kyrie Irving is just over a week away from being the No. 1 pick of the draft and having unrealistic expectations heaped upon him in Cleveland. Irving is the Duke point guard who played eight games to start the season before a toe injury sidelined him. Until NCAA Tournament, when he returned and almost instantly…

  16. Kyrie Irving may work out only for Cavaliers

    Jun 1, 2011, 3:31 PM EDT

    kyrie-irving

    As we said before, outside of failing his physical or showing up to his team interview with Cleveland wearing an “I love the Taliban” T-shirt, Kyrie Irving is going to be selected No. 1 overall by the Cavaliers come June 23. So why work out for anyone else? He may not, his agent implied to…

  17. NBA Draft Preview: Where does Kyle Singler fall?

    May 31, 2011, 5:25 PM EDT

    Kyle Singler Duke

    Kyle Singler is a Duke legend, and that will never change. He is cemented himself as part of the lore of one of the nation’s best college basketball programs. We love him for his trick shots. But where he fits in the NBA is a much trickier subject. Much more controversial. In an ideal world…

  18. Kyle Singler with trick shots all over Duke campus

    May 23, 2011, 9:15 PM EDT

    Kyle Singler Duke

    Kyle Singler gets buckets. This is my favorite trick shot video in a while. Not just because Singler is a national champion and a likely late first round pick in the NBA draft. And not just because Mike Krzyzewski makes an appearance. It’s because this is the most creative one I’ve seen in a while.…

  19. Doc Rivers “leaning heavily” toward coming back

    May 11, 2011, 11:36 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    Apparently Doc Rivers wants to do more than just hang out around Mike Krzyzewski’s practices next season. After a season where the conventional wisdom was he was walking away at the end of the season, he said after the Celtics were eliminated Wednesday you probably will have him to kick around next season, as reported…

  20. Likely top pick Kyrie Irving makes it official, enters draft

    Apr 6, 2011, 6:10 PM EDT

    kyrie-irving

    Kryie Irving is leaving Duke after his freshman year to enter the NBA draft. It’s official. This wasn’t really a surprise to anyone except delusional, hard-core Duke fans who refuse to believe anyone is going to leave their heaven-on-earth campus, but reality intrudes once again. Irving likely will be the top overall pick. Start trying…

  21. Report: Duke’s Kyrie Irving likely to enter NBA draft

    Apr 1, 2011, 11:29 AM EDT

    kyrie-irving

    Duke’s Kyrie Irving missed most of the college season with a foot injury, came back in the NCAA Tournament and quickly established himself as the best player on the Blue Devil team again. That was good enough for scouts — he is pretty much the consensus No. 1. He’s the one guy in this draft…

  22. Coach K stirs up Duke vs. Fab 5 issue again. Ugh.

    Mar 29, 2011, 6:26 PM EDT

    Michigan v Duke

    Grant Hill and Jalen Rose hugged it out. Or talked it out. Or tweeted it out. So finally we can put this whole Fab 5 vs. Duke thing to bed…. Then here comes Mike Krzyzewski. Like your grandfather that just heard about this Lady Gaga person and wants to tell you she can’t sing, he…

  23. Duke's Jon Scheyer not going to Jazz camp after all

    Sep 17, 2010, 4:07 PM EDT

    UPDATE 9/17 4:07 pm: Or not. I mean who wants to go to camp in Utah anyway? According to his agent Mark Bartelstein, Scheyer will not be attending the Jazz’s training camp (according to the twitter account of Jazz beat writer Brian Smith). The Jazz have offered and it made sense to think he would…
