Lame NBA fans claim that the Golden State Warriors are ruining the league by adding former MVP Kevin Durant and then arguably the best center last season, DeMarcus Cousins but at the end of the day, the Warriors almost lost in the Western Conference Finals and there are enough fun storylines throughout the year to make the league interesting to watch.
But that’s not the case in college basketball. College basketball stinks. There is no spacing because none of the players know how to shoot and there are zone defenses that clog up the paint so you have these brutally boring games of unskilled ballhandlers getting overwhelmed by simple defenses.
Sooo, when you have a super team in college basketball, it’s not a fun journey getting to the inevitable end. It’s a bloodbath all year long. Duke has the best starting 5 all time and in their season debut, they folded Kentucky into their back pockets with a 118-84 beat down.

What the fuck just was that? Did Zion Williamson just catch a layup and run coast to coast with it? That wasn’t a block. That wasn’t a steal. Zion caught a shot in the air like it was the opening tip-off. Then threw a perfect bounce pass to RJ Barrett. I’m shook.
Duke’s 4 freshmen (RJ Barrett, Zion Williamson, Cam Reddish and Tre Jones) outscored Kentucky 89-84 on their own. Barrett and Williamson both broke the old record for most points by a Duke freshman in their debut. pic.twitter.com/EgA3LC65Ay

Here goes Cam Reddish again. Might be time to place those bets on Duke to win the championship if you haven’t already.

Duke basketball is bullshit. Coach K has acquired all six infinity stones and will be snapping his fingers on a nightly basis just murdering opposing teams with the snap of a finger. Cancel the 2018-19 season.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Duke basketball should be banned from the NCAA. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
