Meet Grayson Allen, a 6'4 shooting guard from Jacksonville Fla. He's going to Duke next year, and he already knows you're going to hate him. "I think it's going to be a lot of fun," Allen said of the taunting he's expecting from opposing fans next season on Tuesday at the media session for the McDonald's All-American Game. "As far as me, I kind of take that as fuel. I had a little of that in high school, but I know it wasn't as extreme as it's going to be next year. It's always been fuel. I've never let it get to my head too much." Thankfully, Allen is a smart and self-aware teenager who won't be surprised by what's coming his way once he arrives in Durham. He's next in a long line of talented white players at Duke who even casual college basketball fans can't seem to stand. It's a lineage that started over 20 years ago with Christian Laettner and has continued with Steve Wojciechowski, Greg Paulus, Jon Scheyer and J.J. Redick. Redick probably got it the worst as one of the most reviled college athletes in recent memory.
