    HB's "brand" will be fine...seems I remember another Brand that has taken a major hit by getting embarrassed in the tournament.

    Right about that paulie. There would not be much talking. Eve Carson had lots of friends. You may wish to rethink what you have to say.

    His Brand did not go bust, it never materialized. He will have to try again in the Me-B-A, which may be better suited to his shoot first game.

    GO HEELS!!!

    The Black Falcon lost his wings due to his own doing and a bum ankle. Roy allowed him to get the recognition that he wanted, by having the green light. Wow BDF, you do not watch very much bball. You just spout nonsense without doing any research. Shame on you.

    GO HEELS!

    If Barnes left for the NBA this year, he would still be a Top 15 pick. But thats a far cry off his Top 5 status coming out of high school.

    Yeah, his stinky play in the NCAA tournament will probably cost him around $2.79 million over the next few years (best case scenario). Most people would consider that a "bust."

    Yes, he is a "bust". His signing salary with the NBA will verify that.

    I don't think Barnes was a bust, but he didn't live up to all the hype either. He's as good as gone to the NBA. I wish him well, but he'll really need to improve his game to have a successful NBA career.

  • BlueDeviIs00 Mar 27, 2012

    BARNES = BUST. Even the most delusional UNC fans know this is true, although they will never admit it. When you go 2-3 against your archrival, and never lead your team to a final 4 despite playing alongside 4 future lottery picks, you are considered a bust.

    SPECIFICALLY when you go 11-40 in St Louis.

    Interesting thought. After watching McDermott play the other night and looking at their schedule, I wonder what their individual accomplishments would look like if the two had swapped schools 2 years ago. Just sayin'...

    Barnes definitely bought into his own hype and is paying the consequences. I think its interesting though that Doug McDermott, Barnes' supporting cast from high school, received All American honors this year over HB. Hopefully Harrison can get it back on track.

    Poor things. The Dookies have to talk about UNC's past because Dook's present is so horrid.

    Barnes hit a few skids of late, but he did win some games for UNC, and I give him credit for this much. He just didn't show the intensity lately. With some coaching and a good support system in place he will be OK. He's not ready for the NBA right now. He could make some monies to sit on the bench though. Unless he gets something in his heart called courage and even being assertive...I don't know. Great young man and has an IQ. He just needs to see the big picture.

    You lose BDT - LEHIGH

    By the way, you are actually becoming rather boring with your extremely weak smack. Now you need to go back, what, 16 years to have a comeback? As a troll, I am afraid you are becoming a "has-been" (as opposed to a "never was" like your girl paulie). I suppose a loss of such epic proportions during the current season has stunned your usual inept senses to the point they are none-functioning. Oh well, such is the life of a loser. Can you say LEHIGH?

    UNC still holds the 7 spot for biggest NCAA upset ever. Duke is on that list, but on the winning side. So is NC State.

    Thanks for playing.

    I prefer to skype LEHIGH.

    You are going to lose every time this season BDT. Nothing you can troll about this season tops Duke's historic loss to Lehigh. You are left dragging up the past; the very thing you so often attempt to chastise others for. You lose BDT. Why do you lose? Why is your trolling for the season dead in the water? Why are you nothing more than an old laughingstock at this point in time? Three words BDT: Lee says High.

    LEHIGH

    Good article 903. Good possibility he still is thinking too much about the "brand" and needs to think about the battle. I'm chalking it up to a "sophomore slump", and it happens to some kids. Barnes is still projected a lottery pick, but I'd say the hype has been way bigger than the performance. If it were me, I'd want to come back, take care of my business, and show what I can do. But the $$$$$$$$ are calling and he will most likely answer and become some NBS teams development project. One thing about the brand, unless he starts performing some heroics at the right time, he won't have much of a brand to offer. He won't be the first that was projected to be all world and just became part of the world.
