    Harrison Barnes is flat overrated

    He is just not that good

    Questionable ups and questionable shooting

    Not physical and obviously not mentally tough




    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    Re: Harrison Barnes is flat overrated

    Classic overreaction. It's a new level of competition for him. He will adjust.

    Did anyone watch Kobe Bryant his first year or two in the NBA? He was a disaster half the time. Minnesota is a quality team.

    Re: Harrison Barnes is flat overrated

    Or he's a freshman playing his first games of college basketball.

    Re: Harrison Barnes is flat overrated

    Yep, overreaction. Let's wait until he gets more than a few collegiate games under his belt before we start tossing the "overrated" label around.

    Re: Harrison Barnes is flat overrated

    Luckily he's not starting as a freshman at arguably the premier basketball school in the country.


    Somebody wanna remind people how Scotty's first night was, vs how he was vs Drake?

    I don't agree with the original post. But seriously, did you just compare Barnes playing in college to Kobe playing in the NBA?

    Who Cares.

    Give it a rest.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    By the media that voted him pre season All American, before he had even played one second of Division I basketball? Agree with Hubert Davis during the broadcast tonight.....make the kid earn something before annointing him the next coming.

    Yes.

    Barnes is playing at a new level. This isn't the CIML anymore. When Kobe was a rookie, he was playing at a new level he wasn't accustomed to. Kobe had plenty of doubters early in his career. The rest is history.

    Playing against Minnesota is a little different than playing Fort Dodge. He'll adjust. That's all I'm saying. I'm not comparing him to Kobe ability wise. I'm comparing the situations.

    We did not lose Harrison Barnes. We never had him.
