Anyways I was emailed this blog entry this morning entitled “Kyrie, Bro, We’ll Never Forgive You”. The actual title of the blog is Seth Curry Saves Duke. Feel free to Google it, but at this very moment I’m still upset that I can’t get those few minutes of my life back. The author of this blog is basically stating that Kyrie is less of a man because he went pro instead of coming back to Duke. This person goes in stating how his father was so loyal to a company that he did prison time for them and in comparison Kyrie knows nothing about loyalty. The gist of the blog is that Kyrie owes Duke and that they are never going to forgive him for declaring for the NBA draft.
I just want to say bravo to the folks who keep giving people a reason to hate Duke. I’m a Maryland fan so I don’t need any more reasons to not like Duke. Now I’m not saying that these two people signify the sentiments of the entire Blue Devil Nation, but like it or not they are representing Duke Fans. Everyone out there who thinks that Duke Fans are arrogant and/or obnoxious just had fuel added to their fire. They were given one, possibly two more reasons to dislike the Duke Fan base. Now if I’m a Duke fan I’m not sure if I would care if people hate me. I would not however want to be represented by whoever is the mastermind behind Seth Curry Saves Duke. How about some Duke fans come out and point out some legitimate reasons for people not to like Duke, like the fact that since Coach K has been there Duke has won 4 National Championships, went to 11 Final Fours, had 19 Sweet Sixteen Appearances, and 25 ACC titles. So how about people just let Kyrie do what’s best for Kyrie. I mean one man doesn’t make or break the mighty Duke program. Does it?
