Tobacco Road: Does North Carolina or Duke Reign Supreme in the NBA?

It's been a while since we last took a trip down Tobacco Road for a rivalry piece. This time, we will settle an age-old argument between Duke and North Carolina fans: Do the Tar Heels or Blue Devils reign supreme in the NBA today?

There is no doubt UNC owns the past with Michael Jordan, James Worthy, Sam Perkins, Jerry Stackhouse, Rasheed Wallace, Vince Carter...

You get the point.

But now we have folks that like to play the numbers game. Having the most players in the NBA is indeed an honor. However, it doesn't do anything to prove relevance.

That will be the goal today.

We will break down the list of former Tar Heels and Blue Devils until we reach a true indication of relevancy. That means we will bury our heads in minutes and stat lines and even toss around some playoff numbers.

If this doesn't settle the debate, we will at least get a true indication of these fanbases' fanatical tendencies.

 

All information is from the 2012-13 NBA season.
