Just spend 10 minutes in the presence of UNC fans at the ACC Tourney and you'll right that ship, bud.

Worked for me.

Oh hell naw. I get that there’s a real Zion-overload issue. But I can tune it out, doesn’t matter to me really. But fuck UNC always.

I really doubt about what Zion can do in the NBA. I remember four years ago people praised Jahlil Okafor in the similar way. He won championship for Duke but now struggles in the NBA. The bottom line for Zion's professional future should be Kevin Garnett.

Lol. Okafor was never on Zion's level. Not even close.

People considered him as the next Duncan if I remember correctly.

Nope, different level.

And I really haven't seen/heard anything to make me dislike Zion, at all. The hype is annoying, but he seems ok.

I think hype only gets annoying when it’s unwarranted

he is the most deserving of the hype since young Lebron

Yes. The easiest way to tune it out is to just completely ignore ESPN. Watch the tournament on Raycom. They talk about Zion, but it's not the Duke Sports Network that ESPN has become. I mean their website has a feature on his 52 "best and most impactful" dunks of the season.

I mean the hype surrounding him is warranted. I don't see how people didn't think he was the top recruit in his class. He is a freak.

Absolutely. He's a lefty, and can dunk from the FT line. Literally speaking, his teammates just throw the ball in the air to the rim, he can somehow catch it, then the following is either a slam or a foul. He's like a mobile Shaq. He calls for ball not around the paint, but much further. He can change the rules of the game.

Eat a dick UVA.

I hope Zion destroys the Holes and then proceed to get destroyed by the Noles.

These UNC fans on Facebook are hilarious...

Before the game... now that Zion's back we don't want any excuses from you Duke fans

After the game... oh well you only beat us by one point I thought you were supposed to blow us out with Zion...

Lol at “supposed to blow them out”. It was like a 3-4 point Vegas spread

Yeah I think they were making up stories in their heads or some Duke fans were claiming a blow out the last couple games if Zion did play...

Tennessee fired Bruce for loving God too much. SAD!

LOL at the screw job we got. I looked at Belmont's schedule. They beat UCLA and lost to Purdue. They finished second in the league and lost in the final of their tournament. The rest of their schedule was made up of teams that I had never heard of. I'm not even sure what games were conference games. The OVC didn't deserve 2 teams.

Minnesota and OSU got in easily despite having a similar or worse resume. I am sure the ACC bargained them in in exchange for the 3 #1 seeds and having the Big 10 champion as the worst #2 seed.
