DURHAM—This has all the makings of a special year for Duke.
“We have a chance to be good, real good,” head coach Mike Krzyzewski said before the start of the first official practice. “If for some reason we’re not, we’ll have to figure out why we’re not.”
There are no obvious flaws or shortcomings for the 2013-14 Blue Devils, which will be the most athletic Duke team since the 1999 and 2001 counterparts. And Krzyzewski isn’t wasting any time getting down to business, publicly appointing freshman Jabari Parker and sophomore Rodney Hood as the centerpieces the rest of the team will blend around.
