Chris Burgess and Duke's Decline (Blue flew)

Summarized by Gregor McHardy

Chris Burgess and Duke's Decline (Blue flew)
Chicago IL Sun-Times (ESPN Magazine) 22Aug99 L3
Chris Burgess and Duke's Decline (Blue flew)

Chris Burgess, the LDS basketball player who has played a backup role with Duke's All-American team for the past two years, is looking out for number one and transferring to Utah to finish his basketball career. Most of the Duke players broke their long-standing faith to play until graduation and fell victims to the NBA draft, and apparently Burgess sees no future with Duke with all his buddies playing pro ball.

This article deals mostly with coach Mike Krzyzewski's poor reaction to his powerhouse team falling apart, plus a little bit about Burgess and his father's less than Christian counter-reaction to Krzyzewski.
