Would you rather Barnes fall to San Antonio and average 25ppg on his career?
Hes had a decent season and would be a great fit on our team
He's not going to fall to Spurs and he's not going to average 25PPG. He has potential but you never know how much he'll develop.
I haven't heard one person talk about John Henson from UNC but that kid is a freak!
Been putting up some nice numbers of late. Double Double guy with 3 blocks a game.
Compared to Anthony Randolph. Very versatile. Could play the 3 for us.
I like him. 18 boards against Duke today. 11 yesterday against Clemson.
If you guys are insisting on potential/SF then we should get Perry Jones hands down. He has more [far] more potential then Barnes.
He has the necessary speed, mobility as well as some moves off the dribble to make plays on the perimeterDefensively he is a menace, because he is quick enough to stay infront of smaller players and he is also a tremendous shotblocker at this level ...All of the above makes me disagree with you.Even though he is capable of playing both 3 and 4 positions, he is still a tweener on the offensive end because he is not a consistent threat at either spot
And if you've seen him play, you could see that he absolutely does have potential at the 3 or 4 spot.
From Bleacher Report.
If there's a shot at getting him late, I say we do.
Sounds like a difference maker at the 3/4/5.The 6'10" Tar Heel sophomore is oozing NBA potential out of every pore.
In fact, no ACC player is as coveted by NBA teams as Henson is for his ridiculous wingspan, athleticism, shot blocking and rebounding.
Any time you can average 3.1 blocks, 9.7 rebounds and shoot 51percent from the field, you're going to turn heads. In just 25 minutes per game, Henson is doing just that, along with pouring in a tidy 11.3 points per game.
His ability to literally control the game from the paint is seen a few times per generation of big men. Try to name three other players in college basketball who can do what Henson does around the basket. It's a struggle to rattle off any.
The power to make teams shoot from the outside because they're afraid to shoot from inside the paint is something that many coaches never get the opportunity to experience, but all dream of having.
Henson's blessings will be just one reason that the Heels will be must-see TV for the next few weeks, especially if they tangle with Duke again on Sunday morning for the ACC crown.

lets drop the fredette thing already, he wil lbe the next reddick i can already see it. i remember when i was young, immature and had little basketball knowledge too. i saw reddick and was amazed at his skills in NCAA. then he go to the NBA and meh... fredette will be no different. some people are acting like he is the next big thing lol
They aren't the same players. Fredette will be big if he gets into the right system. Mark my word.
lol. Im sure that exact sentece has been said every year, no offense. I bet when fredette is drafted and isnt what some exect they will just blame the system (its the circle of life).
Check out Harrison Barnes highlites from his big game:
He'd be a really good complement to Demar at SF, because whoever gets plugged in there needs to be a good shooter to make up for DD's lack of range.
I was already on the HB bandwagon before his recent strong games, thinking that even if Raps draft approximately 5th, they could pick him up. Now I hope he just doesn't blow up too much in the NCAA tournament
It's too early to say anything about anyone though. We'll need to wait for March Madness.

yah exactly, March Madness seperate the men from the boys.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rJok9ZrnYE barnes didn't even guard him and jones guard 3 - 5 in that game. If we are talking about putting barnes at SG then I see where that will work.
Some dates to keep in mind:
April 24 - early entry deadline (i.e. college freshmen, sophmores, and juniors)
May 8 - deadline to pull out of draft and retain college eligibility (NCAA rule)
May 17 - draft lottery
June 14 - deadline for international players to pull out of draft
June 23 - Draft Night
Source: Morning Journal.comOhio State forward/center Jared Sullinger will soon have to make the most important decision of his young life: Stay another year with the Buckeyes or enter his name in the 2011 NBA draft.
The early entry deadline is at 11:59 p.m. April 24. It’s going to be extremely difficult for the 6-foot-9, 280-pounder to bypass the kind of money the NBA can offer.
His draft stock continues to rise. He’ll likely be a top five selection in the draft. If he returns for a second year with the Buckeyes, scouts could uncover some “warts” to his game and he could drop on the draft boards.
Ohio State coach Thad Matta isn’t convinced Sullinger is leaving.
“I think he will come back,” he said last week. “I’m hoping and I think Jared knows he has some work to do now. When the season ends we can look at all his options, but he’s one of those kids that enjoy college and he knows talking with our former players that are in the NBA what it’s all about at the next level. It’s a different world.
“I definitely have always been this way with guys, I want wants best for them, so whatever that is, we’ll point them in the right direction.”
Sullinger, 18, isn’t a finished product. He’s also a bit undersized. The Buckeyes list him at 6-9, but one NBA front-office executive said he’s probably closer to “6-7 1/2.”
If he makes himself available for the draft, the day in Chicago when teams can measure, poke and prod the players will be extremely important to Sullinger. His actual size without shoes and with shoes could sway some teams in the draft.
One front-office executive told Fox Sports Ohio that if Sullinger was 6-11, he’d be the No. 1 pick in the draft. On the plus side, he reportedly does have a 6-11 wingspan, which is outstanding.
