    NBA GM "Barnes has been umimpressive"

    ESPN NBA blog (posted today):

    North Carolina freshman Harrison Barnes debuted in our Top 100 in July as the clear No. 1 player in the 2011 NBA draft. In July, there wasn't really a close second.


    Barnes was a dominant high school player. He averaged 26 ppg, 10 rpg and 3.6 spg as a senior. He shot 62 percent from the field and 43 percent from 3. He was ranked No. 1 by ESPNU. He won MVP awards at the McDonald's All-American Game, won two state championships and led his team to a 53-0 record in his last two seasons. On the day he committed to play for North Carolina, the press conference was nationally televised.

    Let's post a link to the blog, please.

    Also, quick reminder not to post an entire article.

    Thanks

    Re: NBA GM "Barnes has been umimpressive"

    Yeah, Barnes just had a couple of huge possessions/ points against Kentucky, including 2 huge dunks.

    I know a lot of people are tired of Barnes talk since he didn't chose ISU, but he seems to be a great kid - I want to see him do well.

    He's looking pretty impressive today.

    The environment in the Dean Dome is almost as good as Hilton used to be. Hope to see it return (I can dream can't I?) today!

    Re: NBA GM "Barnes has been umimpressive"

    posting his struggles is simply being petty and will make you look stupid when he starts rolling. I know it's not your words but bringing here just shows your bitterness. I think he made the right decision to go to UNC but hopefully Fred can build something here that HB will regret not being a part of. Every time I watch a game on a national station we have to hear about him, why do you feel a need to bring it here? Do you think we don't have ESPN.

    Re: NBA GM "Barnes has been umimpressive"

    HB has an unfair amount of pressure on him. Selected as pre season first team All American as a true freshman as well as the annoited savior of North Carolina basketball.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Rashon Clark could have done that.

    I don't want to see UNC do well. Not sure why any ISU fan would?
