The 20 Most-Hated Duke Players of All Time

15. Kyle Singler

Years Played: 2007-2011
NCAA Accomplishments: Averaged 16.1 points, 6.9 rebounds, and 2.0 assists and helped Duke win one National Championship
NBA Career: Averaging 8.8 points, 4 rebounds, and 1 assists during his first season in the league

There's a certain way that Duke players carry themselves that rubs a lot of people the wrong way. They're arrogant, they've overconfident, and they're smug. Case in point: Just check out the quote that Singler gave to a reporter back in November 2008 after Duke knocked off Presbyterian College by 31 points. "Tonight, [it] just wasn't there," he said. "That's on us. Our standards weren't met tonight, and we've just got to come back tomorrow with a different attitude, a different mindset. I know we will." Um, what? Son, YOU JUST WON BY 31 POINTS! Don't be a douche.
