Top 10 worst reasons for Kyle Singler to return to Duke

Joe Drews' column today listed some (pretty good) reasons that Kyle Singler should come back to Duke next year -- jersey retirement, the chance to win a second national championship, etc. I'm quasi-uniquely qualified to aid Singler in this decision, seeing how I actually decided to turn down NBA millions an awesome job on Wall Street traveling the world a chance to live in my old room at my parents' house and return to Durham for four years of medical school after finishing my first four years at Duke.

So as the junior forward continues his decision-making process, I thought I'd make a different list -- the top 10 worst reasons for Singler to return to school:

  1. The chance to go out on top!

  1. Joe Drews says you should come back.
  2. You won't have any time to do artwork in the League because you'll be too busy playing video games.
  3. Maybe we'll get someone better than Jay-Sean and Flogging Molly for Last Day of Classes next year.
  4. Duke's locker room is probably nicer than most NBA locker rooms.
  5. You'd have the chance to play in the CBI Tournament in Kansas City next year. You've always wanted to go to Kansas City!
  6. Jeff Bzdelik might be Wake Forest's basketball coach next year. You've always wanted to meet a guy whose last name started with the letters B and Z in succession.
  7. New Ruth's Chris location near Southpoint!
  8. You'll have a chance to learn even more of the secrets of Twitter from Twitter King @Ndotsmitty
  9. Two words: Loop Milkshake.
  10. Two more: Cosmic Cantina. (This actually might be a good reason to return to school, considering that it was one of the key factors motivating me to come back here for med school.)

Anyway, here's some real advice for Singler: Surround yourself with people you trust, listen to them and then do what's best for you. Congratulations on the national championship, and good luck with whatever choice you make.
