I still dislike Grant Hill. As far as Laetner, there was never any mystery about his d-baggery. But Grant Hill was placed on a pedestal and we were all expected to worship his bloodline, supposed intellect, work ethic and clean life. This continued well into his NBA career until his injuries and complete inability to help his many different teams advance into the post season. I may not hate Duke, but its really difficult for me to like them.
But I'm not sure any of that translates into a current rivalry. I live in the Triangle, have Duke friends, and can assure you that UM doesn't make their list. It's probably composed of UNC and...and that's it. I actually get the impression that they feel like they should win every game and if they don't it was because of bad luck (other team exceeds expectations or one of their own is injured). Think Notre Dame - but without the Catholic pretense.
