Hurley had interesting comments on ESPN’s Fab Five documentary. “There was a high level of bitterness,” Hurley said. “Particularly directed at us.” Hurley wasn’t surprised, because Duke beat that team three times.
Hurley said that Jalen Rose might not have played if he had landed at Duke. “He might have had a hard time hitting the floor, because he wouldn’t taken my spot,” Hurley said. And he said Thomas Hill might not lose his spot either. He also had some issues with Jimmy King saying he had no game. Hurley said when he scored 26 on them, maybe that should have given King the hint.
Hurley said that UNLV had more of a right to talk trash because the Rebels were a true monster. But Hurley said he wasn’t surprised Duke beat UNLV in the Tournament, because that Blue Devils team had been through anything.
Hurley also weighed in on this year’s version of the Blue Devils. He thinks they should used Kyrie Irving if he’s healthy enough. “If he’s anywhere near where he was early in the year, he’s got to be in the mix,” Hurley said.
