The Duke Blue Devils not only rule the college basketball scene, as the reigning national champions, but they also hold a big lead for most players in the NBA right now.
If that doesn’t impress you, then you are either a UNC fan, a bitter Kentucky fan, or just a flat out hater.
According to College Spun, the Blue Devils had twenty former players appear in NBA games during the 2014-2015 season. From number one overall pick Jabari Parker, whose season was cut short due to a torn ACL, to the oldest Duke player still in the NBA, Elton Brand, to the only Blue Devil playing in the NBA Finals, Kyrie Irving, the Blue Devils have ruled the roost.
On Wednesday, the Blue Devils released a highlight video titled “Duke in the NBA.”
With the NBA Draft just around the corner, the Blue Devils will surely add to that number with Jahlil Okafor, Justise Winslow, and Tyus Jones all predicted to go in the first round of the draft. How will the Blue Devils ever replace key guys like those three?!?! Oh yeah, it’s Duke.
