Draft Express Breakdown of Harrison Barnes

A pretty fair evaluation of Harrison Barnes' strengths and weaknesses. I think as biased observers who get caught up in the emotions of the season, everything tends to run together so perhaps we forget Barnes' better attributes. As seen in the highlights, Barnes makes a lot of solid plays and showed he could be an effective scoring option. On the other hand his inability to finish at the rim and handle the ball in traffic raises questions and tend to be the aspects we remember most from his time at UNC. That and the fact he went 8-30 in his last two games which left everyone with a bad impression. Still, as the video notes, there is a lot to like about Barnes even more so if he can shore up his weaknesses heading into the NBA.
