The troll jobs between the Duke basketball program and North Carolina Tar Heels are back. 

There is no better way to begin the unofficial start of the college basketball season than with social media troll jobs from the Duke basketball program and North Carolina Tar Heels.

North Carolina junior forward Armando Bacot posted a photo from the Tar Heels’ media day, in which he photoshopped his biceps to look much larger than they are.

The photo made its way around social media, and many quickly laughed at and dismissed the photo.


Michigan star center Hunter Dickinson went as far as to posting another photoshopped picture, where his arms are nearly two times the size of his upper body.

However, the Duke social media team also took to Twitter to show off a photo of Marquette graduate transfer Theo John‘s pictures from media day, where he is showing off his arms with no photoshop necessary.

The caption of the photo reads “Big flex #nofilter”.

The Blue Devils list John at 6-foot-9, 242 pounds on their official roster.

Duke basketball will be looking to lean on frontcourt depth

Theo John seems like he will be a vital piece coming off the bench for Duke this season as Mike Krzyzewski will undoubtedly rely on sophomore Mark Williams and freshman Paolo Banchero.

Willams is a prime candidate to be a breakout player throughout the country this season after the strong end to his freshman campaign. Meanwhile, Banchero is an early favorite for the National Player of the Year Award.

Krzyzewski also has the possibility to go to freshman Adrian Griffin Jr. in the frontcourt as the 6-foot-6 New York native is a projected Top-10 NBA Draft pick prior to the season.

Duke will not have to wait much longer to get its season underway as the Blue Devils will host Countdown to Craziness on October 15 before beginning their regular season in New York City against the Kentucky Wildcats on November 9.
