"An NBA scout gushing over UNC's Harrison Barnes battling KDurant at Chicago camp last night. "Top pick in the next draft -- by far," he says."

Wouldnt be surprised, Durant is not very good at defense

But is a god at offense. If Barnes did this against Lebron then I would be shocked

harrison barnes is not the best player available. Jordan Crawford dunked on lebron, does that mean hes better than lebron james? This guy is merly stating his opinion, it doesnt mean Harrison is the best player available. Anthony davis can play PG at 6"10. He has great perimeter skills and hes playing big now since he had a huge growth spurt from 6"3 to 6"10.

Except Harrison and demar arent spotlight chasers like TMAC. Derozan and barnes arent cousins either.

I'm telling you this next draft class is loaded. Harrison could end up a superstar, and the 3rd or 4th best player in the draft behind Anthony Davis (:drool:), Austin Rivers(:drool:) and Michael Gilchrist (:drool:). Then you still have potential stars like Jared Sullinger and Perry Jones, along with Quincy Miller.. Then Terrance Jones and other high level role players like him.. The 2012 draft will be the best since '03 EASY

its no guarantee they get the first pic. the twolves pick seems to be cursed in the lottery.i know the clips arent making the pick untouachable. aminu and the twolves 1st rouner for either paul or williams? id do it. barnes may be a nice player- better than loul deng but man chris paul on that clipper team with griffin. he may never have to post up, everything will be a dunk

I've never seen Harrison Barnes play but all the talk/type I've seen/heard has been excellent except for a lackluster overall frosh year. There's something about highly recruited UNC's wings that just gets me all warm and fuzzy. I hope he has success in the NBA and if there is a lockout, I'll definitely be tuning in for as many UNC games as possible.


...Kyle Singler shut him down against UNC, twice this year.

Lolz...senior on a anally coached team vs frosh...Singler is just going to be another nobody and another Dukie that fails to win a ring, only Luol Deng can break that stigma.

...Kyle Singler shut him down against UNC, twice this year.

And Barnes shut Singler down every time they played. Not to mention Singler was a senior while Barnes was a freshman. Who on duke will stop Barnes next year.. while stopping Henson, McAdoo, Hairston, Zeller, Marshall and everyone else at the same time? The answer is nobody. Singler is no where near in the Barne's league. Singler will not last long in the NBA while Barnes will have a long career. Typical stuff when comparing unc and duke players.

You are so completely wrong, it isn't even funny. Obviously you have never seen Barnes play. Unlike probably everyone else that has posted in this threqad, I have seen every game Barnes has played. He is no Marvin Williams. He is far better and can do way more things than Williams. He is no Durant either. Barnes actually very very good defense and can score like crazy. Take time to watch some UNC games this upcoming season. You'll be completely amazed by what you see.

Clippers should trade Kaman, Mo, and their own draft Pick for an elite PG instead of a straight up Iggy for Kaman deal. Then hopefully they land Barnes with the Twolves pick. That team would be damn stacked. Or maybe they should try to make a package for cp3. 2 First round picks including Wolves, Bledsoe, Aminu, Kaman for CP3.

Back to Topic. Harrison Barnes is more of a Sean Elliot than a Marvin Williams, and obviously not a Durant. He has the potential to be a better version of Sean Elliot though, which is pretty damn good.

^^^^ This. Most scouts compare him to Carmelo Anthony or a better all around Luol Deng. As soon as they watch UNC games like I have they will be begging for their favorite NBA team to get him at number 1. I know I am.

I've only seen him play 2 games this past year, but it seems to me that he lacks above average athleticism and slashing ability. I rarely saw him drive past his man. And just by looking at the stats he is getting to the line less then 2 times a game. That doesnt scream elite prospect to me.

If he plays good defense and can shoot he could be a solid starting SF, much like a Deng clone.

Yeah comparing Barnes to Marvin Williams is absurd. Barnes will be at the very least be a 15pts and 6rebs guy his rookie year in the nba...

06-29-2011, 11:29 AM
Barnes shot is so wet tho and his D is so good. At worst he'll be a solid starting SF.

Someone said something about him not getting to the FT line I think if anything he just falls in love with his jump shot a bit to much.. but who can blame him.

Not nearly as absurd as comparing him to a bonafide superstar. Marvin Williams is an example of his floor and Durant is his ceiling, the reason hes closer to Williams than Durant is because of Durants FAR superior rate of development.

Stack up their freshman years against each other and you'll see why.

7 or 8 seasons of waiting man. The funniest part is we got Cassell too which is who led us to the playoffs. I think we are SO lucky that it happens to fall on one of the deepest drafts ever. Even if Wolves improve and it's a 10 pick or something we can still get a really good piece.

You have yet to see valancunias and barnes even play a game. Theres something called busts when players cant live up to the hype. There is no gurantee on what the outcome will be.

I'm telling you this next draft class is loaded. Harrison could end up a superstar, and the 3rd or 4th best player in the draft behind Anthony Davis (:drool:), Austin Rivers(:drool:) and Michael Gilchrist (:drool:).

It certainly has a lot of talent. I doubt Gm's will agree with you. THis draft does not have best talent since 03.

Barnes and "valuncias" have yet to play an nba game, yet theyre pieces to make a dynasty? :facepalm:
