This list is an absolute disaster. There were so many great players that have come and gone from the Coach K era. I like Chris Duhon, but he's not even in the Top 10 best players from the Coach K era...maybe not even the Top 20. Corey Magette stayed all of one year, as did Brand and Luol how could you even entertain the idea of having them anywhere on this list?

It's impossible to name one specific top player, so I'll give a group: Johnny Dawkins, Danny Ferry, Christian Laettner, Grant Hill, Bobby Hurley, Shane Battier, Jason Williams, and J.J. Redick. Johnny Dawkins, who didn't make the list, could be the best among everyone here. He was the first big star of the Coach K era, and was capable of putting up a lot of points. And he played three of his four years at Duke without the three point shot. - jfausti

His entire NBA career he was underrated. It was sad he played on such bad teams because he was a great player. Possibly the best NBA player of all time without an All-Star appearance.

Probably the best pro on the list... maybe even ahead of Grant Hill.
