A lot of people think we needed upgrading at the 3 spot, but if you look at it, that's the only position on our team that is kind of set. It's far from great, but we have two adequate players at that position, and to me, adding a 3rd player who is similar to the players that we already have at that position doesn't make much sense to me. But hey, I might be wrong. He might get better. He might improve his slashing ability. Maybe he becomes an excellent shooter. Maybe he's a lockdown defender which I've seen a little of. Hopefully he becomes a better pro than a college player. Like I said I'll wait and see.

Nothing is sure...most of the things I said were based on what analysts and scouts said...and, again, it's all up to Barnes and the coaches now.

He was better in HS than in college for some reason...maybe he had different role at NC. I didn't watch him at highschool level. I don't see him becoming a lock down defender, but I think he can be good. The thing I see he can improve the most is that slashing ability. And he is a great shooter already.

A lot is a wishful thinking, but it is based on his physical abilities...it's not like hoping that Monta will grow taller a bit, so we wouldn't have a small back court (back in the day).

And concerning those other players...I'm sure that at least Dorell will be gone, if not both him and Jefferson.

If you like Barnes' athleticism you have to love Drummond's. It's pointless to compare them now though. Different players, different position. I'm just mesmerized by Drummond's potential.

I never said I don't like Drummond, or his athleticism...I'm just afraid that we would be drafting Kwame Brown. Too big of a risk...and we are so close to be a playoff team. If he turns out to be u bust, I'm afraid that it would completely broke the fanbase, missing the PO again...I don't know, just too much of a risk. We're already suffered long enough.

If we were in the playoffs one or twice in last 6 years, I would be all for that gamble, but now...not so much.

I think we all hope for that. ::lol:

Though, I really like Ezeli...maybe even more than Sully, can't decide.

If Sullinger drops to 30 I'll feel A LOT better about our Harrison pick.

Harrison Barnes will wear the same number as in college, number 40.

Who was BPA? Barnes. Which STARTING position needed help? SF. Win win. Boom bang. You gotta build a starting 5 and worry about the bench later (see Celtics).

If it's a Drummond vs Barnes...

I don't care if Drummond turns into Kareem Abdul Jabbar in 4 yrs. Fans don't want to wait 4 yrs!! Win now baby!

#30 too soon for Ezeli?

It's not too soon...we're chating about him since the start of the draft, Mr. Crackerz and I wishing it to happen the most it seems. And Fine and Dark hoping for a big as well.
