Duke ‘Brotherhood’ video gives some viewers ‘goosebumps’ and ‘chills,’ others want to puke
By ADAM ZAGORIA
Duke’s new “Once a Blue Devil, always a Blue Devil’ video has already been viewed more than 180,000 times and some folks on Twitter are saying it gives them “goosebumps” and “chills,” while it makes others want to puke.
The 4-minute, 39-second video features virtually every significant Duke player of the last three decades, from Grant Hill, Jay Bilas, and Jay Williams to R.J. Barrett and Zion Williamson, who is shown holding up his index finger for No. 1 to end the video. The only glaring absences seem to be Bobby Hurley, Kyle Singler and Brandon Ingram.
