Two sets of Duke basketball brothers were inexplicably left out out a social media post regarding which house of brothers fans would like to stay with during quarantine.

As people continue to be bored without sports during COVID-19, many social media accounts have come up with hypothetical questions or scenarios.

One of the latest posts came on National Sibling Day from ESPN asking which house of siblings people would like to grow up in.

The World Wide Leader in Sports listed a slew of talented siblings but left out two of the most iconic siblings in the history of the Duke basketball program.

In a group that included the Gronkowski’s, Ogwumike’s, Antetokounmpo’s, Watt’s, Curry’s, and Williams’, the list did not include the Jones’ or Plumlee’s.

The combination of Tre and Tyus Jones teamed up for an NCAA Tournament Championship, the Most Outstanding Player of the 2015 NCAA Tourney, 2014-15 All-ACC selection, the 2019-20 ACC Player of the Year, 2019-20 Defensive Player of the Year, and 2018-19 All-ACC Freshman team in just about three full seasons split between the two brothers.

Tre and Tyus also have an older brother, Jadee Jones, who played at Furman from 2005-07 and currently coaches at Apple Valley High School.

Tyus Jones is currently in his first season with the Memphis Grizzlies while Tre Jones will shortly be in the NBA after he declared for the 2020 NBA Draft after two seasons with the Blue Devils.

Switching gears to the original brothers of the Duke basketball program in the Plumlee’s.

Mason, Miles, and Marshall Plumlee each won one National Championship in their time at Duke while Mason was a consensus All-American and a two-time selection to the All-ACC team.

All three brothers made NBA appearances while Mason is still in The Association, Miles was until recently, and Marshall is a United States Army Ranger.

The Plumlee’s also have a sister, Madeleine, who played volleyball at The University of Notre Dame.

Two of the most iconic siblings in Duke basketball history were not included on ESPN’s Twitter post, but if Blue Devils fans were asked to pick which household they’d like to grow up in, that would truly be a fascinating question and debate.
