As basketball lovers get ready for the second-round of the hated CIVIL WAR between Duke versus UNC, this time at The Dean Dome in Chapel-Hill on Saturday, we, at Black Athlete Sports Network, decided to poke some fun at both school in the week of Here Comes the Hater. Enjoy!!
NORTH CAROLINA-(BASN)-1. What was Dean Smith’s greatest decision?
Recruiting Rasheed Wallace!!!! Yes Indeed.

2. Was Dean Smith your “white” daddy?
No, my daddy was Black. Plus, I am a free Black man, off the plantation

3. If you got a basketball scholarship from UNC, what would be your major?

African-American Studies….of course. Now, that was dumb question.


4. What advice to you have for Duke’s Tyrus Jones?

Don’t go pro!!! Stay in college and develop you game. Don’t end up like Austin Rivers.

5. If you could ask Dean Smith one question, what would it be?

Why didn’t UNC hire coach Larry Brown after you retired instead of Matt Doherty?

6. Do you know who J.P. Tokoto is?
Of course. He is a sumo wrestler from Japan. Everybody knows that….

7. Give me one reason Carolina can’t win the NCAA Championship this season?
OK. They are too light skin to win. 

8. Do you believe in the scripture that says, “The Meek shall inherit the earth?
Yes. But, UNC’s center Kennedy Meeks is too dam Meek!!! Toughen up Boy!!!


 9. Did you hear the news that NC State’s Trevor Lacey got arrested last week?

Yes. But, in my opinion, the only reason the cops arrested him, was because, the Wolfpack beat Carolina the other night. It’s a conspiracy theory. But, I sticking with it.

Yes. It is former Duke standout Austin Rivers. And, he has been frozen in time, since he hit that game-winning 3-pointer against Carolina three years ago.

No!!! But, I must admit, I like point guard Quinn Cook!!! First, I love his uncombed afro. Plus, I love his level of intensity!!!

Justin Jackson. Why? Because, he remains me of former Kentucky basketball star, Tay-shawn Prince. You feel me….
