Quote: "Everyone knew Mason Plumlee wasn't coming back. His older brother, Miles, the Duke coaching staff, his close friends. It was a foregone conclusion prior to the start of last season. "That's what I had told everybody," he said."
More ammo to use against those holier-than-thou types that say Coach K does it "the right way" and would never deign to spend his time on "one and done" mercenaries like Coach Cal. Bottom line: every coach takes the best talent they can get. Coach Cal takes two- or three-year guys like Eric Bledsoe and turns them into "one and done"s. Coach K takes a "one and done" guy like Plumlee and turns him into a four year player. Who's working in the players' best interests again?
