In an interview with Reese Waters of Bleacher Report, Grant Hill has his theory as to why Duke is so hated by some: “We’ve had a lot of really good white players, I think that plays a role.”
He also notes how most of the fans in the stands are white, calling it “white on white hate.” Jalen Rose, a couple of years ago, had a different interpretation of why he hated Duke.
I’m sure Grant Hill is right though. No one is hating on Duke this year. Well, unless they just despise the tenth Plumlee getting less than nine minutes a game.
