Every Tuesday evening during the offseason, JJ Redick and Shelden Williams welcome fellow franchise killers to Raleigh, North Carolina to help them deal with the emotional pain of their Trajan Langdon-esque careers.

Duke greats like Jay Williams, Dahntay Jones and an impressive list of NBA eleventh men  share stories of awkward failure and community disgrace while sipping on William Avery’s home-made punch.

The support group, called Drafting Underachieving Kids Early or D.U.K.E., is one of the more popular programs in the area and plans to welcome Blue Devil football players as soon as one of them actually makes the NFL.
