Every Monday morning, Crazie Talk culls Duke basketball news, articles, and videos into a half dozen of the best “Deviled Eggs” on the interwebs.

Here are this week’s best:

1.  Jon Scheyer wants to be the next “Most Hated Dukie”

Scheyerface talks to SI’s Luke Winn about playing point guard, Maryland fans, and Luther Vandross. What a guy.

2.Kyrie Irving is a Man with a Plan

2010 target Kyrie Irving, one of the top point guard prospects in the nation, is seriously considering Duke; moreover, he plans to study journalism in college. We have a pretty solid track record with journalists (the President of CBS Newsthe Chief Washington Correspondent for CNBC and Senior Contributor on the Wall Street Journaland the late founding editor of New York Magazine, to name a few) as we do with professional basketball players (tops in the NCAA with 14-current alums playing in the NBA, not to mention 11 Top-10 NBA Draft picks). Here’s to hoping Kyrie gets to join both of those illustrious lists.

3. Former Duke great Jason Williams looks to revive career…

In the Chinese pro league. We all still love you down here, J-Will. Best of luck.

4. Coach K, USA Basketball moving to new levels

Coach K continues to showcase why he’s at the helm of USA Basketball. He also looks to be the first coach to win multiple gold medals since Hank Iba in 1968.

5. Paulus earning his keep at Syracuse

Somehow I still can’t believe this is actually happening…but it is. Preseason workouts are in full swing at Syracuse, and Greg Paulus is garnering plenty of media attention.

6. Harrison Barnes For President

Top 2010 prospect Harrison Barnes talks about his monster game  against Serbia (46 pts, 14 reb, 4 stl) at the Nike Global Challenge last weekend.


He also wants to tear the rim off.
