Can't believe webber wasn't on this

I guess it hurt him really deep. The guy is a sensitive soul. I think that's why him and Nelson couldn't co-exist and Webber ended up being shipped out.

Any link so I can watch this would be greatly appreciated.

It still is getting into the minds of younger folks watching it. Did he also mention that it wasn't right of him to think that?

He was telling a story of that time. Did we need a disclaimer? He did say they thought Christian Laettner was a p*ssy....until they got on the court. Then they saw the dude could ball.
Does Grant Hill understand past-tense??? What a dummy.

I'm actually a fan of Duke but I can't believe Hill owned himself like this, smh.

Eh, Rose didn't exactly back off of his comments about Duke only recruiting "Uncles Toms" when asked about it afterward on First Take.

I mean hell...he's even apologized to Hill about it. I don't see how Hill owned himself here.

I haven't seen "first take" but just going by the doc, it's pretty freaking clear that Rose was talking about how he though as a youngster...it's actually blatantly clear, for a guy like Hill go on this grand spiel after failing to comprehend something pretty basic, is pretty sad. It makes him look petty and condescending.

Just saw the First Take, again he makes it pretty clear that his hatred towards them was based on his immaturity:

It sounds like Hill is just being a sensitive nancy, smh.

Apparently a Duke education doesn't teach you the difference between "I thought" and "I think". It sounds like he didn't even watch the documentary and just read out of context transcripts. If he had seen the documentary he would known Rose wasn't disparaging Hill's parents but talking about the bitterness he felt, particularly about his father.

Also not all Duke players have the same fond views of Duke: http://www.sportsgrid.com/nba/elton-brand-duke-letter/
i respect what hill said, but i have no problem with what rose said when he was 17 coming out from the hood in detroit. rose has stated clearly that thats what him and the others thought when they were 17, i heard him saying it again on 1st take. i would clearly understand why kids age 17 coming out of the projects would think that way about duke at the time

Has anyone read Wilbon's column on Rose vs Hill?

I have a link to it but it's mobile ESPN, hell of a read IMO
