Grayson Allen, the former Duke basketball star, did an AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit's NBA page today. It was pretty great.

The former college basketball star talked about the NBA Draft process, why he didn't leave Duke early, what it was like playing for Coach K and more.

The most-interesting aspect of the AMA - for Duke fans, anyway - likely came when Allen was asked to name the most "talented" player he played with at Duke.

Allen has played with several first-round NBA Draft picks, from Jayson Tatum to Harry Giles to Jahlil Okafor.

His answer: Brandon Ingram.

"Its a tough one because there have been so many, but I have to go with Brandon Ingram from a pure talent/potential standpoint.

Jahlil, Jayson, Harry, and Marvin are all up there though," Allen answered.

Ingram was the No. 2 overall pick in the NBA Draft a couple of years ago. He's on the Los Angeles Lakers now.
