18 year old on a crappy teams getting the assignment of gaurding Lebron and the other best in the NBA on a nightly basis. I think he showed more potential than most of the other rookies at least. Just needs to work on that shooting

Yeah, the only reason Barnes was picked over MKG was because of team success. 

 

I've already shown in another thread how MKG easily had the better all around season. Not to say that my word > all, but simple statistics and advanced statistics all easily support MKG having the better season. 

 

MKG was easily a top 5 rookie, only behind Lillard, Davis, and Drummond. Although, you could certainly make arguments for guys like Beal and Waiters. However, one could counter that argument with defense and rebounding (MKG was a top notch defensive player his rookie season, and a top notch rebounder for a SF).

MKG plays very good defense.

 

But, his outside shot is weak and his shot gets blocked 1/6 of the time.

 

He was a project when picked and the ranking seems fair.

You can thank Dunlap's stupid ass for this.  MKG wouldn't see the court for 99% of second halves this season because of his retarded "rotations."  MKG started the season off fine and showed flashes of greatness and then Dunlap put him in the fridge.

Ask yourself this question.

 

Would GS be better with Barnes or MKG?

 

Would CHA be better with Barnes or MKG?

 

Barnes is better..period.  I love MKG and am glad he is a Bobcat, but Barnes has unlimited potential and is finally starting to realize it.  The list looks pretty accurate to me.

Not really a surprise that Barnes looked better as a rookie- he is older, stronger, and most importantly for an NBA role player, he can hit a 3

This sounds like a UNC hater comment. 

 

Do you have any evidence to back this up? It's not like he plays for the lakers dude. Most people didn't even hear about the Warriors until 2 weeks ago. Steph didn't even make the NBA All Star game! 

 

Maybe you missed Barnes light up the Spurs this series. If he didn't get hurt last night, there's a strong possibility for a game 7.

I had to enlighten BigQueefDaddy in the NCAA forum about Barnes. He made some asinine comment that Barnes had to come back to UNC for another year to improve his draft stock. LOL. 

 

Harrison Barnes hit the jackpot by coming back for another season at UNC. He absolutely went to one of the best possible situations and that GS team's potential is off the chart. If they can get a legitimate big man that can bang down low & with a healthy David lee....that team is going to be at the top of the Western Conference for years to come. 

 

Steph, Thompson, and Harry are a serious contender for best shooting trio in the NBA.

I'm just saying that his particular supporting cast seems to have helped him 1) perform better and 2)gain more visibility than MKG.

UNC HATER! I KNEW IT!

 

Seriously though, it's hard to disagree w/ you on the better supporting cast argument. Do you think Russell Wilson would have had the same success if he had played on the Browns last year? 

It's another testament to my argument that Barnes hit the jackpot by returning to UNC for another year. With an assassin like Steph and another deadly shooter like Thompson on the court at the same time as Barnes, it's going to give him free range to do whatever he pleases. 

 

Also, I doubt he would have had the same success if he were a member of the Bobcats.
