It's possible this has been around for a while, but we hadn't seen it. Apparently, a Duke fan got a hold of former Dookie Elton Brand's email address and lambasted him for leaving the Blue Devils early for the NBA. Brand, if the email is to be trusted, was less than amused.

Thank you very much, for reminding me of the reason why I left Duke. Peolple like you cannot and willnot (sic) ever understand my situation. I'm sure daddy worked very hard to send your rich self to college. While real people struggle. I would also like to extend an invitation for you not to waste your or my time ever agin. Never being considered a part of your posh group of yuppies really hurts me to the heart. Yea Right because I don't care about you or your alumni.

Not quite "I could give a shit about North Carolina right now," but, you know, all told, not too shabby.
