I'm sure the namesake of the KKK's former Grand Wizard appreciates your support.

I can't believe parents of the Duke kid on Providence named him David. I guess they didn't like "Adolph."

It's terrible.  Though, it wouldn't be as bad as like, wearing something from Hugo Boss.  Or driving in a VW ( or Audi), or BMW, or Porsche though right?  And I hope your portfolio doesn't include Siemens.  What kind of message does that send?

Maybe give the kid a break on his name.  I know I certainly had never heard of David Duke in 1999.
Their= possessive of they
They're= slightly shorter than "they are"
There= the opposite of here

You do realize David Duke from Providence is African American? Why would he change his name because of some other POS with the same name.

I wouldn't expect the kid to change his name. But I am surprised the parents used that name. I think people are generally cognizant of famous people that share their surname. I'd be willing to wager that if your last name is "Duke", you are more likely to have heard of the former David Duke. It just seems an odd choice. Parents put time into picking names, I can't imagine giving one without examining all the angles. And if he's named after his father, I would think that would be less of a reason as the father already had to deal with being another David Duke all his life.

Just like Office Space, I fully get that the "why should I change my name, he's the one that sucks?" aspect of this, but if it turns out a white supremacist shares my name, I'm certainly not giving my son the same name so he has to bear that all his life too.

This.

But this did crack me up ...

I actually think it's great.

I can just imagine the look on some racist POS face when he clicks on a news article just because of the name and is greeted by the Friars David Dukes smiling face. Classic.

But seriously ...

David Duke the KKK leader would have advocated lynching David Duke the basketball player, or burning down his church, or putting a flaming cross in his yard.

So it goes back to what brewski said. If our last name happened to be Dahmer, my wife and I would have named our son ANYTHING but Jeffrey. And if my parents had been brain-dead and named me Jeffrey Dahmer, I'd have changed my name.

But hey, it's David Duke's (the hoopster) life, and I wish him success (except when he plays against Marquette).

Thanks for posting. Wow, that is an amazing story. I have certainly noticed the game to game improvement Gill is making lately, but had no idea of his backstory. One of the things I love about the size of the current Big East and the round robin schedule is how well you get to know the opposing teams, coaches and some of the players' stories. Some you can't stand, some you grow to appreciate and some you can't help but like.

Rocket - removed your post and replies.   Maybe you don't intend it that way, but saying things like that counts as hate speech in my book.  Don't do it.

Or Bernard

Ooohh....politics!!!!  How fun!  Isn't it just awesome!!

So clever, Cheeks.  (Wait for the denials..."I never compared Bernie Sanders to Adolph Hitler...I just said Bernard--I meant Bernard Toone.  And I was comparing him to college basketball players David Duke, Adolph Rupp (well...) and Fidel Woods of Jackson State")

True story:

When I was in high school, I dated a girl whose father was the biggest bigot I had ever met to that point in my young life. My senior year in college, my mom sent me a newspaper article he was featured in -- as having been de-hooded. Turns out he was the Imperial Wizard of the Connecticut KKK.

Hell, I just googled his name, and several articles popped up. Here's one of them:

Be careful, in some areas that Daughter would also be your sister. So you would be outing your father.
