Not a Tough Guy

Harrison Barnes is just a helluva player.

Some people don’t know Harrison Barnes, but we’re dropping this wallpaper without introduction. Absolutely none. Nada. Why? Well, here’s an analogy: If you don’t know Harrison Barnes, you’re not a basketball “fan.” If you’re not a basketball “fan,” you don’t read SLAM or SLAMonline. (If you’re not a basketball fan, and you’re here anyway… it’s probably time to call your mom.)

    i think there is a difference between a basketball fan and one who doesnt give a crap about american high school players

    it’s ‘nada’, not ‘notta’. And i’ve heard of, but do not know anything about Harrison Barnes. therefore, i am not a basketball fan. Thanks

  • Czar Ruke

    I guess I can be an NBA fan but not a basketball fan. who knew

    I heard about him last week for the first time, and now he’s being touted as the best HS player in the nation? AND he’s a senior? What about the last two guys in this slot?
    NOW I’m confused.

    this boys coming to DUKE

  • Justin

    This kid goes to Duke his career will be done. Like 795,524,274 other All-Americans who are now living up to their potential by being the butt of jokes everywhere as K-rat screw ups. Do not drink the kool-aid Mr. Barnes, just do some research and steer clear of Durham. You will be better for it.

    Harrison is an absolute stud. Great kid on and off of the court. I pray to God he ends up at Iowa State but wish him the best of luck wherever he goes. He will make ANY school proud that he represents them.

    If you don’t know my boy Chad McLovin, who’s a fictional prep player I just made up, you’re not a basketball fan.

  • Billy Bob

    At the Nike Challenge:It was easy see this guy as the next Michael Jordan. During his first game I jotted down “Jordanesque” in my program. In game two he lit up for 46 points against the Serbs along with 14 rebounds, four steals and 1 block. But it was how he did it. 6 of 13 on 3 pointers,(he has NBA range) and 12 of 13 at the free throw line. He has an edge that reminds me of Jordan: the deamenor; the hands so pliable, so quick. Defensively he can make opponents look like grade school cousins. I will be surprised if Harrison is not one of the top three lottery picks in 2011 after one year in college. He is a two guard as in 2. How good is he? He could guard anyone in this tournament and make them look bad.

    Time for a new wallpaper.

  • Rhenasium

    this is getting kind of ridiculous. not hating on harrision or anything but its been nearly 2 months since we’ve had a new wallpaper..

    Just watched him win his second straight state championship. Statistically probably not his best game but the opposition controlled the clock keeping it out his hands. He’s unreal though, shows alot of maturity and doesn’t force things. Takes good shots and makes plays. Final seconds of first half he threw down a dunk from a pass off the glass, it was nasty. I’m glad he chose UNC instead of being a potential NBA bust at DUKE.
