Poll: Who would win a matchup between NBA players from Duke and UNC?


North Carolina will be favored as it hosts Duke on Wednesday night, but with all the pro talent the two programs have produced over the years, we got to thinking: Who would win a game between the two schools’ best NBA players?

Of the former Blue Devils and Tar Heels currently on NBA rosters, here’s what we project as the best starting lineup for each team:



PG Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers

SG J.J. Redick, Los Angeles Clippers

SF Luol Deng, Miami Heat

PF Jabari Parker, Milwaukee Bucks

C Jahlil Okafor, Philadelphia 76ers



PG Raymond Felton, Dallas Mavericks

SG Danny Green, San Antonio Spurs

SF Harrison Barnes, Golden State Warriors

PF Marvin Williams, Charlotte Hornets

C Ed Davis, Portland Trail Blazers
