He’s been in the NBA since the 90's, has made multiple All-Star games, had his best years in Los Angeles in the mid-2000's, and after tomorrow, he’s most likely hanging up his shoes for good.
Today is a nice day for Duke fans. The Deadspin staff is not unmoved by this, so we thought we might share one of our favorite memories involving a Duke player.
