How will next year's Carolina team compare to the '09 Championship team?



If Harrison Barnes does indeed make his return official than we could be looking at one of the best Carolina teams of the decade. With the return of Henson and Zeller and the addition of James McAdoo they will have the best front court in the nation. And with only the loss of one scholarship Senior (Knox) they will have the depth and experience to win any given game throughout the season. But how will they compare to the 2009 team that we all remember and love?

How will Barnes, Marshall, Strickland, Henson, and Zeller compare to Green, Ellington, Lawson, Thompson, and Hansbrough? Throughout this year of college basketball there was not one dominant team as we had seen in recent years and I can't see one next year unless you look at Carolina. They don't have the experience that the '09 team had but they may end up with better all around talent when you look at the depth and chemistry between these modern Tar Heels. Obviously they can only be compared if they win the National Championship in 2012. What do you guys think? Leave comments and answer the poll.
