Class of 2010 Starts the Duke-UNC Rivalry Early

The McDonald's All-American Game airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN, but the video below has to be more entertaining than anything you'll see on the court tonight. Four players get an early start on the Duke-North Carolina rivalry Draft Express sat down to speak with four future participants in the rivalry. Kyrie Irving is headed to Duke, and seated second from the right. Harrison Barnes, who famously committed to North Carolina via Skype is next to Irving in the middle. Two more UNC commits -- Kendall Marshall (left) and Reggie Bullock (right) make up the rest of the group. ↵

↵The two sides trade a few barbs about each other, future opponents and where the two schools are in their respective postseason runs ... even if it did take someone being tripped/falling over for North Carolina to hang on in the NIT. Enjoy the smack talk. ↵

↵Obviously, a lot of this looks like it's in good fun, but Reggie Bullock might want to hold his tongue when talking about the Duke wings. The Blue Devils potentially return Nolan Smith, Seth Curry, Andre Dawkins and the aforementioned Kyrie Irving on the perimeter. You could even lump Kyle Singler in there because of how much time he spends on the wing.

↵*By the way, if you're watching anything tonight, it should be The Street Stops Here on PBS, which airs at 10 p.m. ET. Check out my review of the documentary about the legendary St. Anthony's hoops program in New Jersey over on FirstCuts.↵
