As if we needed another reason to hate on the Duke Blue Devils, Duke guard Tyler Thornton gave us an inside look at the sneaker rotation currently sported by the ACC powerhouse in this great video which features a sea of Royal Blue and White LeBrons, KDs, and Kobes. Thornton himself is rocking some Military IVs, but later shows us his rotation of the Air Foamposite One “Royal”, Nike Huarache Free Bball 2012, and Nike Air Flight One, but that might be bested by Senior Forward Mason Plumlee’s impressive stash of the Air Zoom Generation, Zoom 2k3, and Air Zoom GP II – three great early-2000′s models. On top of that, we’re given a rare look at the Duke sneaker storage closet, which Thornton poignantly describes as a “sneakerhead’s dream”. Check out some of the highlights as well as the full video below!

Arguably the greatest coach of all time leading a team rocking arguably this era’s most significant signature sneaker series? Even if the landscape of college basketball has leveled because of trends like one-and-dones, it’s still not exactly fair when you’re going up against a team with all the advantages of a Duke University. The Blue Devils are among the nation’s most polarizing teams because of their unrelentingly consistent success, and they’ll look to regain what they lost last year while wearing, among other models, this Nike LeBron 8 V/2 Low PE as shown off by sophomore point guard Tyler Thornton. They look to be idencial to the pair 11-game alum Kyrie Irving showed off at Chris Paul’s charity game early last month; should we take this as a sign that the a Kobe-for-LeBron trade is in the works and Duke will update their look like schools such as Kentucky, Miami and Ohio State? Be sure to stick with Sneaker News for all the latest NCAA basketball sneaker stories in this NBA-less winter, and let us know how you think this Duke LeBron 8 V2 Low compares to the others we’ve seen in recent weeks.
