Duhon misses shootaround

If you were watching the Duke-North Carolina game Saturday night, you probably saw Chris Duhon among the many former players that attended the game. Duhon has gone back to Duke for many games over the years, but my first thought after seeing the Bulls guard courtside was this:
How in the heck is he going to make it back to suburban Detroit for the Bulls' 10 a.m. (Eastern time) shootaround Sunday in the Palace of Auburn Hills — especially with the start of daylight savings time making the night an hour shorter?
Despite chartering a plane to get back to the team hotel Saturday night, Duhon overslept and missed the shootaround.
It's nice to support your college team in a big game, but Duhon's first priority is to the team signing his checks. Even if he had managed to make the shootaround, attending a game Saturday night in North Carolina probably isn't a good idea when you have a game Sunday night in Detroit because of the fatgue factor.
Then there's the fact that the last thing the Bulls need right now is another distraction.
