There were alot of you heels fans dogging HB about his speed and finishing ability, well he was one of the fastest guys at the combine, had one of the highest verts, and was among the strongest there. The most impressive thing to me was his no step vert was 38 inches while his max vert was 39.5 inches.

I think most Heel fans I know were concerned with his relatively poor ball handling skills, not his vert or speed.

Not sure who was doing that, because I sure as hell wasn't one of them. Like I've said about a billion times now, no shock to me that you Dookies don't get it, Barnes was the best player on the floor in probably 98% of the games he played in at Carolina. The few exceptions being when they played Kentucky.

He was just a very frustrating player to watch, and in a way he reminds me of Julius Peppers. Makes it look so easy. Can have a monster game, then pull a Houdini for the next 3.

I truly think he was getting bored at the college level and will flourish in the NBA under the RIGHT situation. Cleveland, Washington, being a good example of this.

Honestly, the Bobcats are probably the worst situation he could be in next year.

What do you mean, " I don't get it"? I have always thought Barnes was a special player, I think he gets more hate or criticism from unc fans. The guy was the best player on the team and all unc fans talked about was what he did wrong or couldn't do. He was always the unc player that scared me the most and I hope the Bobcats trade down to #4 and get him.
