    I always had my questions about Barnes. He has an NBa body and a very good jumper but thats about it IMO.

    I hate using the word potential but I think with the right coaching that Barnes has the raw talent to be super good but I still would pick Gilchrist over him.

    I see Barnes as a Paul Pierce type of player.

    On Simmons' podcast Steve Kerr said he thinks Harrison Barnes might fall out of the top 10.

    FWIW I read somewhere this fall that Barnes played hoops all summer with a bunch of NBA guys, and all the players said he had the game of a 4 or 5 year NBA vet. Not sure it's worth drastically lowering his stock based on a few games. I think he'll be really good in the NBA

    He hasn't been that good all year. I think that he'll end up being the 3rd best pro on UNCs team right now.

    Kerr said he thinks Barnes' ceiling is a softer Sean Elliott and I think I agree.

    He strikes me as one of those "solid pro" guys. There is no question that he they are a pro caliber player but they aren't a superstar or even a star for that matter. I just don't see him standing out on the NBA level.

    Kerr also said he thinks Sullinger could be Kevin Loveish. Which I don't agree with and seems crazy considering how goods KL has become but when you think about what he was at UCLA maybe it's not that crazy.

    I'm not that big on Barnes either. He reminds me a little of Marvin Williams.

    I will admit I was wrong about Love, but Sullinger is soft, and will be a bust.
