Harrison Barnes just looks like a guy. He reminds me of Marvin Williams or even a Joe Smith, not special at all--not top recruits, not top 3 draft picks.

The UNC teams of the mid/late 90s had Vince Carter and Antawn Jamison. And Antawn Jamison was the prized recruit and leader of the team--the guy who got all the hype. But as it turned out, Vince Carter was the star.

He looked the part. Harrison doesn't look the part. Only time will tell, but I'm calling my shot right now.
should I delete this trash?
