Alex Murphy headed to Duke

According to Jeff Goodman, Kentucky target and five-star small forward Alex Murphy has decided that he’ll play for the Duke Blue Devils following his graduation next summer.  Murphy, the teammate of UK five-star target Kaleb Tarczewksi and brother of Gator Erik Murphy, visited campus last month and decided to verbal early after realizing he was a white small forward and it was his destiny.

    Another racial jab at a kid because he wants to go play at Duke. You know Duke does have black basketball players as well as white players. Enough with KSR and the constant racial profiling of athletes.

    Duke University, the whitest basketball team in the most racist place on earth.

    R.I.P Alex Murphy’s career.
    Though we never really knew you, when you were sent to college at Duke University, we knew it was the beginning of the end.

    It’s okay for white people to call out white people for being white. If they don’t like it, then they shouldn’t make it so easy to point out year after year after year after year while they label Kentucky fans racist on their message boards.

    big shocker..another slow, ugly, white player with gay hair is going to duke. regardless of how bad he really is, he will be 1st team all-american his senior year, just look at kyle singler

    blonde hair, blue eyes of course he is headed to Duke, Sounds like if Hitler was coach there.

    3 – agree with your post. So much racism on this site.

    And Singler would have pulled out a game like Ole Miss or Florida for us. It would be nice to have a four-year player like that – even if he’s purple.

    8 totally agree. Kinda like how we would be making fun of wiltjer if he was going to Duke instead of UK, but he isnt, so we’re not going to make fun of him. Its all good people!

    He was about 4 or 5 on my wish list. This kid can actually play. We will get to see him in Atlanta against the Cats. Hopefully, we will have Shabazz Muhammed, Brandon Ashley, Perry Ellis, or Kyle Anderson checking him.

    #9, this kid can play. Really play. Really, really, really play.
    I would’ve loved to have had him come to Lexington. He’s that good.
    Disappointing to see him go to Duke, but not unexpected.

    How can we call this a racial jab facts are facts, If you are white and decent at basketball then more than likely you will be headed to Dookie. Get over it, it is the way it is. I hate Duke.

    Hey #3, you remeber all the sh*t UK has gotten for the same racial stuff! When UK had a all white startn line up, Texas Western or whatever in the NCAA tourney. Well they made a movie about it! Guess what all white line up UK beat the game before they playd Texas West, that would be duke! But yet they make a movie about UK! Gurantee if UK had a all white startn line up, we would be all over the news, and coaches every where would be sayn that UK is racisit.I get so tired of duke and what they get away with, and everybody acts like they are so mistreatd! Give me a break!

    Awww… The poor white people getting their feelings hurt. Yes I am white. Maybe if white people spent less time at the mall and more time in the gym, you might see more D1 talent.

    Why would he choose UK? Cal only plays white kids when he has to. Like when Kanter gets ruled ineligible he has to play JORTS. And when one of the starting “6” gets into foul trouble he might play Hood or Polson. Laugh all you want, like it or not, those “white kids” at Duke have been killing the college basketball world since 1992. How many title do we have in the 2000s?? I love UK, but facts are facts. At least these kids stay 4 years!

    it would be nice to have a multi year player like singler on our team right now. People making fun of duke and the white boys ha i wish we had some guys to stay a few years so we can win a championship in this decade.

    I was going to say something, but I think all the good white jokes have been taken! If we had only lost to Duke in 1966, how things would be different.

    This is pitiful….I think we can all agree that we hate Duke and their weasle coach…actually I just hate their weasle coach…cry-effing-baby coach that has the weakest schedule every year but nobody talks about that bayyybbbbeeeee ’cause it’s Duke!

    Why can’t we just label players as players and not bring race into.
    KSR posters and even some of the bloggers routinely make fun of white athletes when they’re not wearing UK blue.

    But truth is – even in the modern era (post 1970) Kentucky’s best teams have had a good mix of white and black and hopefully they’re better people for having shared a common goal and worked together.

    Just in the past 25 years we’ve had guys Mashburn, Pelphrey, Chapman, Walker, Shepherd, Prince, Padgett, McCarty, Bogans, Sparks, Estill, Feldhaus, Turner, Ford, Delk, Prickett and Hayes. It doesn’t matter what color their skin was – all of them contributed greatly to UK’s success.

    I agree 30, well put. If a kid is good enough to play for a elite program, then please let the kid play and do not invoke race. If we are going to move forward in this country and have race relations improve, then we must stop the bigotry.

    #30, yup. A baller is a baller. Purple, red, white, green, or blue, it doesn’t matter. Murphy has great skills, and I hope he reneges on his commitment to Coach Rat.

    24. You will be hard pressed to find someone that hates Duke more than me. This is just another reason I hate them. Just ask the few friends I have that are Duke fans. I just don’t understand why we can’t get someone like Reddick, Sheyer, Singler or this kid? 23,000 or a high school gym?

    30. I totally agree. The best teams have good “players” of both races! However, over it has not been the same since Rickie P left.

    I hate Duke worse than about any school in the world, that being said though…As white as their kids may be, they are still a much more solid team than we have this year. Just saying….

    Ugly white kids end up at Duke. That’s just a fact. Sorry if that offends anyone. Coach Weasel goes after the white kids. Cal will take any color. How many Pukies have tats? It’s all about fitting into the Puke image. Would Liggins have played at Duke? Think seriously before answering that. Would Boogie have played at Puke? The only thing racist about it is the way Puke recruits. Look at what St. Johns did to them. ‘Nuff said right there. Got out hustled and beaten by lesser talent? Or just better athletes who wanted it more? Puke will not recruit the borderline black kids and will take a honkey any day.

    Hey #53 puke for life! It def helps to get a perfect draw in the tourney EVERY year! And then get to play 1st rd in NC every year. Giv it up man, you know puke got lucky last year. They def were not the best team in college basketball last year!
