    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Harrison Barnes and his "brand"

    Somebody needs to remind Harrison that it's perfectly ok to plan ahead and think one step ahead of everyone else... But it's a whole other thing to ACT one step ahead... smh

    Re: Harrison Barnes and his "brand"

    I kinda like it, though I feel it needs to be refined. Looks a little rough.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    I'm pretty sure that was started from the hype on UNC message boards before/early in his freshman year.

    You can't buy better publicity than that! He already has a celebrity billboard.

    Re: Harrison Barnes and his "brand"


    This piece in Grantland from a couple weeks back really hit the nail on the head, if it hasn't been linked already.

    I knew HB was looking for a good business school, but not having followed him closely since he crapped on ISU fans at his announcement presser, I didn't realize how seriously he took this branding thing. To state what others have said, shouldn't your brand be being really awesome at basketball? This is the kind of thing that makes GMs question how committed he is.

    Finally, I would offer this tweet from Dan Wolken: "If we're being fair, Harrison Barnes' logo should include a silhouette of him missing a stepback jumper, no?"

    Make fun of him all you want...in the end, he's getting the paychecks. And there will be plenty. Spoiled UNC dorks didn't deserve a kid like him.
