I think it's too early to make such proclamations, but I don't see them as having similar skillsets. Jones is more of a face-up 4, while Barnes is a true wing player. Obviously Jones has played better so far but it's ridiculously early.

well you are wrong my friend. Harrison Barnes isn't the athlete Terrence Jones is. He is a much better shooter (judging from high school) than Terrence Jones but his IQ and defensive ability is what separates Barnes from Jones. I would argue Jones has a higher ceiling.

I totally agree, and the way that Jones handles the ball for as big as he is, simply astonishes me!!!!!

I was surprised by Jones' handles in that Washington game. He's got some serious skill with the ball.

Kentucky relies too heavily on him and Knight tho. Maybe other stars will arise for them but so far they are a 2 man show.
