Tonight he will Be in attendance at the North Carolina alumni game. The Dean Dome is sold out, they will be unveiling the national championship banner as well as thier new sound and light system. They hired the announcer from the Bulls Dynasty. Vince Carter, Antawn Jamison, Marvin Williams and company will be playing.
And guess what the row he is sitting on is rumored to be
James worthy, Dean Smith, Bill Guthridge, MJ, Harrison Barnes, James Mcadoo, Roy Williams, Tyler Hansbrough.
I really just wanna know, between the Tarheels, Dookies, and Jayhawks fans on here, what are your responses? Anybody think this has the potential to vault Carolina into the lead?
It does have the potential but I still see Duke getting him.
Don't forget, Mike cannot talk to him!
NC is never gonna get him. I say Duke or the team this year that makes an impact. As of right now, I see no way on Earth Barnes goes to NC.
interesting barnes article..
i am very scared he goes to UNC..... Hopefully Duke still lands him but i think its gonna be very close between the 3 (kansas, duke unc)
Oh and I heard he isn't making a decision til spring so it might be a while before we know
It should sway his decision a little sitting in that company is impressive even if I hate Carolina. The only way KU gets him is if Xavier leaves for the NBA, the jayhwaks will still be good and adding barnes would keep them near the top a reason for him to head to Lawrence, but I hate to say I think Duke is where hes heading.
Yea I think he'll go to Duke. I have a feeling he will, and he's a good fit there as well.
He still has ucla on his list....im hoping he comes to my school..........it will really jumpstart the program agian....Especially if josh smith sign with him.,.....but i doubt it....Hopefully he doesnt go to duke,kansas,or North carolina....just to give some other teams chances to win a chip....
Because Duke players have had soooo much success with going to the NBA...LOL. Why wouldn't he go to UNC? UNC is the best talent producing school (next to UCLA) and he would fit the style...You know, UNC did win the National Championship last year...You people make it sound like they suck...LOL.
He should go to Duke....not UNC. It will be crowded anyways
Either way, he is starting and is the premier player on that team...Seriously, why go to Duke? Coach K is great, but a lot of players from the Duke system have turned out to be bust...Even when they play 3-4 years of college ball.
Because Duke is great. He is a great teacher. I say go to Duke, learn the game.
Duke players in NBA:
Shane Battier-- widely regarded as the best(if not one of) defensive players in the NBA
All solid NBA players. Shelden and JJ may be kind of busts, but nobody thought they should be picked as high as they were, it's hard to fault them.
UNC players currently in the NBA
Vince Carter, Rasheed Wallace, Antwan Jamison, Ray Felton, Marvin Williams, Brendan Haywood, Rashad McCants, Brandan Wright, Sean May, Tyler Hansbrough, Wayne Ellington, Ty Lawson
Ill take the Duke team.
Oh and btw...
UNC #4 in terms of colleges sending players to NBA..
EDIT: And this is without Jay Williams who no doubt would've been a great NBA player.
That's a joke...How can you take Duke? LOL LOL
Duke is underrated when it comes to talent in the NBA.
The talent NC has sent to the NBA compared to Duke has been pretty even, also Roy William coached players aren't the best players in the nba though they are decent.
If Duke lowers it academic standard...more kids would go to Duke
because the duke players in the nba are better than the unc players in the nba? thats a pretty good reason why id take that team
Duke has produced good NBA players, but UNC has produced better...Also, between Jamison, Wallace and Carter there are more all-star appearances than all of those Duke guys that you mentioned put together...And yes, Shelden and JJ ARE bust.
Since 1998...what good player has UNC put in the NBA?
Duke and North Carolina havent produced great pros over the past few years but thats mainly because they were recruiting college players instead of 1 and dones. Barnes will be good wherever he goes and will be a top 5 pick wherever he goes so it wont hurt his draft stock at all unless he goes to Iowa State. But I see him going to Duke he seems like a really smart dude that cares about acdemics so he would definetly be a good fit at Duke.
Since 1998...who has UNC produced?
Brendan Haywood, Joseph Forte, Raymond Felton, Marvin Williams, Sean May, Rashad McCants, David Noel, Brandan Wright, Reyshawn Terry, Tyler Hansbrough, Ty Lawson, Wayne Ellington with plenty of talent in the future...
The question is, who has DUKE PRODUCED outside of Boozer, Hill and Elton Brand?
U named noone on that list who was good. Come on man. Like I said before:
If Duke lower it's academic standards...more kids would have went to duke
to answer your question:
Mike Dunleavy, Chris Duhon, Corey Maggette....since 1999 and 2 of the 3 are better then anyone you just named.
LOL...WOW, Mike Dunleavy, Chris Duhon, Corey Maggette...DUKE IS STACKED...LOL WOW.
Let me ask you a question.
Who won the National Championship last year?
Who won the National Championship in 2005?
Who has produced the best player of all time?
Yes, UNC has had some players who haven't lived up to the potential, but come on...So has Duke...Once Coach K is gone, what's going to happen?
My bad....dont forget Loul Deng
lol who has Duke produced other than 3 very good players!?
what a joke of a question.
Leave it up to a UNC fan to talk about current NBA players, realize he is wrong, then talk about MJ.
Whether you want to admit it or not, Duke currently has more/better talent in the NBA than UNC does thus disproving your original statement that Duke players in the NBA are all busts.
Lol...Like I said, Vince, Jamison and Wallace have more combined all-star appearances than all of those Duke guys combined...So yeah...Sorry.
Yeah..Hell yeah I can talk about MJ...He's the best player ever. Deal with it...I can also talk about Brad Daugherty, Billy Cunningham, Hubert Davis, Walter Davis and Bob McAdoo if I want to...
Also, who has more NBA talent in the future? Duke or UNC? Oh, we all know the answer.
Wow, That's like me saying
Who been to more final 4's since 1990? (Duke)
Who made it to the title game in 86,89,90,91,92,94,99,01? Duke
The point is, Duke overall had has better success then UNC since 1980. Go Look it up. We dont get alot of One and Done players due to Academic Standards. But the talent we do our thing.
Question Duke if you want, but UNC since 1998 has not sent top talents to the NBA.....kinda sad for a " great school"
Final Fours? Duke-
Highest Winning% in the 90's Duke
You can keep Talent, we just win. Like I said Before. UNC overall is overrated.
Those mean nothing...ITS ALL ABOUT CHAMPIONSHIPS BABY...
Anyways, seriously guys...I don't want to argue with you guys...Both teams have produced great talent...Overall, yes UNC has produced better talent and there's no denying it...However, UNC has had a string of bad luck the last 10 years with producing overrated players, but so has Duke...
Both are great programs...I'm a UNC fan, Q and Spencer are Duke fans...LOL there's really no point in arguing nobody will ever win.
Fact of the matter is, you said all Duke players bust in the NBA. You were proved wrong. The initial argument has NOTHING to do with past success. Nobody is arguing that UNC didnt have the greatest player ever. Keep repeating that, it means nothing. We all agree MJ is the greatest. Woohoo.
They have more all-star appearances but Duke has many more good players. Majortiy of UNC players in the NBA right now are not even average NBA'ers. And if you want to talk shit about Shelden Williams and JJ Redick.. How about Marvin Williams, Sean May, Brandan Wright, Rashad McCants.
Duke and UNC both have their share of success and busts in the league and both have had their share of success in college. Overall the argument between which team overall is better is an ever ongoing argument that's too difficult to decide. Very recently UNC has had more success, but expect Duke to be back on the rise again soon.. It's a rollercoaster, sometimes one team is up and one team is down.
I really didn't mean to say "all" Duke players are bust...I seriously did not mean that...
You have some good points...However, I do not consider Marvin Williams a bust. Give Brandan Wright 1 or 2 more years. McCants was never supposed to be an amazing player. Sean May is a bust...I thought he was gonna be good to.
I get what your saying...
If i could just add my 2$ ( no cent's sign )
MJ would still be the GOAT no matter where he went.
Can I throw in my 3$?
If Wilt won at least 2 more titles...I think he would be the G.O.A.T
For being the #2 pick, most people consider Marvin a bust. He's solid no doubt, but he wasn't worth the #2 spot, just like JJ wasn't worth the #11 pick.
Well...Yeah, CP3 and D-Will are just amazing and made him look bad. He is still very young and has a chance to be a border-line all-star.
But yeah, technically Bogut is a bust to lol...
True it is. But, if Wilt did I think he would be the GOAT.
MJ is right now, but if he went to LA earlier in his career and won another couple titles, he would be the GOAT IMO
We shouldn't even talk about Wilt...We never even saw the guy play...We should just entirely leave that subject alone. I'll leave that to the older people. I mean, the veterans lol.
Why not? I mean, we have not seen him play but he was dominant.
True look at the guys he played with...you gave Wilt those guys...Wilt would be the GOAT.
Hypothetical. You can't take all those championships away from Bill JUST because he played with good players, can you?
MJ played with great players.
Bird played with great players.
Magic played with great players.
Every great player usually played with other good players..Kobe, Shaq I can go on and on.
I'm not saying Bill wasn't good. Never said that.
I said, you give Wilt those talent, he wins more rings.
u cant judge players you havent watched.. its too hard..its like quincey try telling me tyreke wont be good even though he has never watched him just read about him. cant take his opinion seriously.
Tyreke WILL be good...Quincey is stupid...He thinks his nephew is the second coming of Grant Hill yet he thinks Tyreke sucks?
What do you mean? The man career is over and done with.....
It's not 100% correct but you can assume, give Wilt 4 HOF's around him for his career, he would win more rings.
You really cant judge a player you've never seen play. Bottom line.
when did i say tyreke will suck?...is spencer still mad becaus ei didnt agree that in 3-5 years evans will be top 10 in the nba? and blazer liek i said before those comments came from johhny dawkins and other scouts including sonny vaccaro and i agreed..i think ill stick with there opinion over a just a chat fan liek you....anyway ive never seen wilt play other then highlights so i cant really say what he would have done. the GOAT will probably always be a guard or someone who has the ball in there hands alot3 out of the top5 players in history, when you ask people, are always guards. but if you noticed the picks changed when asked who you would build youre team around
