From Alaska to Moscow with Love

Before JJ Ridick, became the face of Duke Basketball, another person that the Dookie Nation loved was Trajan Langdon. After a three year tour in the NBA with the Cavs and Clippers he moved overseas to play with the several different teams. Langdon came to Duke from Alaska.

During Langdon time in the league he played in 119 games averaging 5.4 points a game in 14.6 minutes, at least his numbers are better Josh McRoberts. That is one of the reasons that he was selected as the next in Only Time Will Tell's series on Duke Players that Suck in the NBA.

For the last three years, Langdon has been playing overseas for such teams as Bennetton Treviso, Efes Pilsen, and Dynamo Moscow. Langdon was also drafted by the Padres in the 6th round of the 1996 Baseball Draft. It would have been an easier trip for Langdon to head right from Alaska to Moscow and skip heading to Duke all together.
