Harrison Barnes

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?

yeah right kid

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.

Duke

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.

Yeah, go to Duke

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.

Crowded?

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.

Duke players in NBA: Shane

Duke players in NBA:

Shane Battier-- widely regarded as the best(if not one of) defensive players in the NBA

Carlos Boozer

Luol Deng

Elton Brand

Chris Duhon

JJ Redick

Corey Maggette

Mike Dunleavy

Dahntay Jones

Grant Hill

Shelden Williams

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...

http://davissportsdeli.com/wordpress/2009/06/25/which-college-program-ha...

UNC #4 in terms of colleges sending players to NBA..

Duke?

#2.

EDIT: And this is without Jay Williams who no doubt would've been a great NBA player.

Outside of Jordan

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.

Spencer

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.

Duke and North Carolina

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.

.

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

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?

Enough said.

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?

Leave it up to a UNC fan to

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.

No, duke does not...

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

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"

Talent...UNC

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.

Who cares about Final fours?

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

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 &$#%#&@! 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...

For being the #2 pick, most

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

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

Once again

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.

when did i say tyreke will

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
