    Johnson by far. Particularly right now with her being on Dancing with the Stars, but even before that I'd have said her. If you ask the average person outside of Iowa who Harrison Barnes is, they'd probably have no clue. In fact, I'd argue the average person outside of Ames doesn't know who HB is.

    This is a silly question. I'll bet there are a billion people on this planet that know who Shawn Johnson between the Olympics and that stupid dancing show.

    Duke Fanatics maybe. I don't think your average fan of any team follows some junior in high school who might come there in a couple of years from 5 states over.

    Yeah, there is no debate, Shawn Johnson. I bet there are allot of people in Iowa that don't know Barnes, but everyone knows Johnson. In ten years that might not be the case, but for now it is Johnson.

    Right now it's Shawn Johnson obviously. But give Harrison a couple years and he'll start to even things out. It'll never be even since Johnson was an Olympian and is known world wide, but he'll close the gap.

    Yep. In 5 years Barnes will be a household sports name. In five years nobody will know who Shawn Johnson is IMO. She's going on Dancing with the Stars too early in her career. This is usually a last ditch attempt to relive your 15 minutes of fame. She's burning through hers too quickly.

    Johnson by a mile. Maybe if he becomes a college or NBA star Barnes can overtake her. But it is also possible that Johnson comes back to the 2012 Olympics and boosts her own career.

    Better question: Who is a more famous Iowan right now; Jimlad or Tom Arnold?
