Sweet ride, Alex!

A friend sent me this Instagram picture of a pretty awesome, expensive car from Duke forward Alex Murphy’s account yesterday. With all the hub-bub surrounding Duke regarding Lance Thomas right now, you’d think a young player would be a little more careful than to even insinuate that he just got a new Lamborghini.

I’m not cool enough to have an Instagram account, so I can’t follow up with details, but a rational mind would probably think that (1) Alex was joking or (2) he comes from a super rich family (hey, his dad was a former NBA player). However, at KSR, we prefer to give Duke a hard time and not make excuses for them. So we will assume that (1) Alex is getting paid by Coach K himself or (2) Alex might be taking after his older brother Erik  these days and breaking into nice cars.

    Nothing to see here. This is a knockoff that uses Pontiac Fiero parts. Coach K said so.

    If he were a UK player, Thamel would already have broken into a dealership’s office to find the lease papers, Forde would be making references to the envelope, Goodman would be saying it’s not surprising coming from Cal, O’Neil would be posting about how UK fans are hoping this will blow over and attention return to UNC and Duke, and Tipton would have written an article stating that the car was a gift from boosters and our player had a different car last week.

    Much ado about nothing. And hubbub doesn’t have a hyphen.

    So I was really lucky on Ticketmaster and received floor tickets to the UK/Duke game in Atlanta next month. I should be able to get in coach K’s ear. It will be awesome! I plan to wear a crap load of jewelry mocking Lance Thomas as well.

    Heh, even though Alex Murphys family is rich, I don’t think they’re that rich. Obviously this was a joke, and not his car. Surprised to see a lack of furious comments from the BBN though. Well played, gentlemen.
