    John Wall makes Barnes look like a grade schooler

    actual quote from a co-worker. dead serious as well. said that barnes should be compared to battier, and that would even be giving him high praise. i think he's out of his mind. just curious on what everyone else thinks?

    don't want this turned into a bashing of HB thread either as i think the kids got game and wished we could have got him but also wish him well at UNC.

    This may be a stupid question, but who is John Wall? I don't follow recruiting too closely.

    Re: John Wall makes Barnes look like a grade schooler

    No thread related to two non-Iowa State basketball players or recruits should be in the ISU MBB (Men's Basketball) Forum. Please switch to the General College Forum. I'm sick and tired of looking for news related to Iowa State Men's Basketball and seeing Wesly Johnson and Harrison Barnes stories.

    Re: John Wall makes Barnes look like a grade schooler

    Kentucky freshman point guard who lit up UConn the other night. He's a stud. People say if he didn't have to be one year out of high school, he'd had been a top pick in the NBA draft last summer.

    Different style of players. Hard to compare. Barnes doesn't seem to be as explosive/quick as Wall... but has a great shot and solid all around game. And good basketball mind too.

    What does any of this have to do with ISU MBB?

    Re: John Wall makes Barnes look like a grade schooler

    I only watched part of one of the state tourny games last year for HB, and only part of that uconn game for wall, so with that being said, from that limited amount of viewing i'm going to have to agree with your co-worker.

    Although HB is the #1 player in the country, if he was in wall's class I can't see how HB wouldn't have been rated lower (no bias here, even if he went to ISU i'd say the same thing)... wall doesn't even look like he has to try and he's embarrassing D1 kids 2 or 3 years older than him.

    wall is definately the flashy player of the 2, but to say he would make him look like a grade schooler is a bit much. to me it's like saying that kevin durant would have made michael beasley look like a grade schooler.

    I am with P on this one. This has nothing to do with ISU basketball.

    Already been mentioned above. It was way more irritating to me the people that ***** about it being in the wrong catergory than the actual thread itself.

    John Walla and Harison Barnes have different styles, but even so, John Wall is so far above Barnes it's not funny. Barnes is good, but he cannot be the one man show that Wall is. I watched him the other night and he was probably the best freshman I have ever seen.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I didn't say that... I just said if they were in the same class, Wall would be rated higher, and Wall is playing very well after transitioning to college... no comparisons to grade schoolers

    *edit: oops, didn't see the title... yeah i wouldn't go that far w/ your co-worker
