The 20 Most-Hated Duke Players of All Time

13. Jason Williams

Years Played: 1999-2002
NCAA Accomplishments: Averaged 19.2 points, 6.0 assists, and 3.2 rebounds and helped Duke win one National Championship
NBA Career: Averaged 9.5 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 4.2 assists during one season in the league

Don't get it twisted: Jason Williamsor Jay Williams as he's known nowwas good. Real good. In fact, you could make the argument that he was one of the best players to ever suit up for Coach K. But, he was so good that it made a lot of people hate him.

Like, how in the world did Duke manage to land that guy? Don't they only recruit goofy-looking white guys who shoot 500 threes a game and slap the floor when they play defense?! And, don't even get us started on how Jay Will played during the era when Duke got EVERY call. It got so bad that one sportswriter sat and counted the number of fouls that Williams should have been called for during the 2001 National Championship Game against Arizona. He counted at least seven. Crazy.
