That's kind of like a Speedway gas station across from a speedway gas station no?

It's funny how other teams do it and the "Duke" part never gets mentioned. But every time MSU does? It's the "Duke Coach K floor slap." Pretty fucking stupid if you ask me.
South Cedar in Lansing!
Different fucking prices too. Seen it as bad as 10 cents.
why does Duke get the reference for being the ones who started it? wasn't it the Flintstones who started that whole thing?

That's what I thought.
Does Duke even do the "Duke floor slap"?
It is embarrassing. I hope it is.never done again.
How? I like it.
"If you're worried about Wolverine fans, just move to Pasadena. You'll never have to deal with 'em."
If Michigan did it, we would rip them big time for it.
I've heard it called that when other teams do it too.
Duke did it back in the late 80s.
I know Tommy Amaker did it for sure back then.
Definately was not invented by the Flintstones.
You think they will have the energy to slap floors after all those hours of flop practice?
Well, I'm sure that between the time Naismith brought out the peach baskets and Amaker slapped the floor in the 80s, that some non-Duke player slapped the floor. It's not like they own it, and frankly, it feels like we perfected it with the players we've had. Besides, J. J. Redick or Mason Plumlee slapping the floor doesn't intimidate me.

The Bad Boy Pistons used to do it. Who cares who "invented" it?

Please don't speculate.
Hell no. We did that shit back in high school. ('90-'94)
Your a retard.
If you do the floor slap, you had better back it up. I've been a little sour on the floor slap ever since a 2005 game at Van Andel Arena vs. Arkansas-Little Rock, when Maurice Ager slapped the floor at almost the exact time that his man was hitting a wide open three.
This. I can't stand it because 9 times out of 10 this season it seems to have led directly to defensive lapses.
Play the game, fellas. We all know you're into it.
Thank you, Denicos.
Opening line on floor slaps is...
I don't think it should count unless more than two players do it at a time. MSU does it twice, Duke does it three times.
I do believe Miami did the floor slap against Duke earlier this year.
The duke floor slap? Awesome.
Every time we do a floor slap we give up a layup, so I hope we don't do it.
Duke invented the floor slap the same day that UofM invented winged helmets ... and Notre Dame invented the forward pass.
When we do it it's like a domino effect. I remember Nix did it one time with like 15 seconds on the shot clock.
