Jay Williams, Nolan Smith Debate Their All-Time Duke Starting 5s

Creating an all-time Duke starting five is a very tough task. The Blue Devils' men's basketball program, led by Mike Krzyzewski, is littered with former greats. 

Two of those former greats, Jay Williams and Nolan Smith, attempted to name an all-time starting five on Twitter this morning. They then debated which team would win. 

Williams' five: himself, Kyrie Irving, J.J. Redick, Grant Hill, Christian Laettner. 

Smith's five: himself, Jon Scheyer, Grant Hill, Kyle Singler, Christian Laettner.
