    RJ Barrett is playing tonight and it's a packed house .. RJ playing for Canada in the Summer and a lot of empty seats .. Confusing ?
    Canadians (and especially Torontonians) just love anything that's cool and popular in the US. Duke is that.

      Duke also posdibly has the 3 best college players in the whole nation on one team.

      • Ryerson leading after the first quarter- Duke has been burned in transition a lot in the first.

        Barrett and Williamson have looked good

        The height difference between the two teams is rather noticeable

        • So this is what the American network ESPN posted for highlights of the Duke game:



          And this was the TSN one:


          But of course there isn't an American favoritism bias...

          • I watched the game ... I am a Canadian fan but Williamson stole the show . He is a monster ... RJ has so much raw abilty and a year of Duke will do him good . The problem with the youtube generation the players are so hyped and it may go to their head and think that they are done and are ready for the big show ..

              Williamson reminds me of a Jason Maxiell / Julius Randle hybrid. Will be interesting to see how his physicality translates to the NBA playing against bigger, smarter and more athletic bodies.

              • Zion reminds me a lot of Larry Johnson. Just with more hops. Duke is going to have a great team this year.

                  If converse was smart they would pitch to make him be grandmama 2.0. Those kicks in the 90's were solid!

                      • This escalated quickly from reminds me of Jason Maxiell.

                          Shawn Kemp great example ... Dwight Howard under sized monster is also a good example.

                            Comparing him to Maxiell is just insulting.

                            I like the Barkley comp a lot. Most Barkley like player since Barkley.

                            As for Barrett - I'm not even sure who he reminds me of. Maybe the image in my head of what I thought Andrew Wiggins was going to be.

                                Barrett has a little T-Mac in his DNA ... Wiggins is Rudy Gay
