    When this article came out on Grantland.com, I was very happy when the Cavs passed...

    Of course this article does say that Barnes was trying to build his brand like Jordan and Jeter, so maybe that's why PIP is on the Barnes bandwagon....

    Pip, if front-runners had a league, you'd be my favorite player.

    Cavaliers | Browns | Indians | Buckeyes | Red Hawks

    I don't know that Harrison Barnes will make any teams pay, but my goodness did he make Nikola Pekovic pay as he absolutely annihilated one of the scariest dudes in the league.

    Maybe averaging 25 a game is premature, but I wouldn't rule it out with his ability to score. He's got a whole career ahead of him, so obviously I'd consider that a bold statement for him to do something not many players have done.

    Either way, though, averaging 20+ a game is something I see him doing.

    I can't believe the Warrior's announcer called that a windmill jam (referring to dunk on Pekovic).
    The NBA will retire Chris Bosh's number, similar to how the MLB retired Jackie Robinsons. Bosh broke down barriers proving that Women can play in the NBA.

    Ironically, I think Barnes would have been the perfect guy to put next to Irving and Waiters. Next to Irving alone, though, I don't think he would have been as good a fit. I was actually hoping on draft night after we took Waiters at four (which, unlike most, I was in favor of) that we'd do the rumored trade to Golden State for the seventh pick and draft Barnes.

    I'm such a jerk off.

    I hated Barnes before the draft. I'd slang my Barnes hatred everywhere, harping on how heavy-footed he looked moving around, how lacking he was in first-step quickness and ability to beat his man off the dribble, and how his on-court explosiveness just never matched his stellar athletic testing results. I wanted the Cavs to have nothing to do with him (even though I did have some late-hour backtracking when I considered how he and Dion might compliment each other if we were going to do that trade).

    That dunk broke my heart. I take it all back. I love Barnes. I wish we had taken him. I was wrong... so wrong.

    I think a lot of you guys had Harrison Barnes mixed up with Austin Rivers before the draft....

    Unless we are going to build like the Kings with a bunch of "me first" kind of guys, we need to look only for defensive oriented 3's going forward or we will be like the Kings with teammates fighting for shots.
    I disagree about Barnes. I don't see him as a volume guy. I see him as a third or fourth option type of guy who benefits from the attention drawn by his teammates, which is why I think he would have been a perfect fit next to Irving and Waiters.

    If you're sincere in this post, and not sarcastic, you deserve some kudos for admitting you were wrong. I can respect that. As a Harrison Barnes fan since his Jr year in HS, and someone that said he'd have an NBA game similar to Paul Pierce (and got ripped repeatedly for that view), I appreciate what you wrote.

    I think W&G said it best: Sean Elliot. Great player when hes your third option, but not a go-to guy who creates for others

    He's done nothing to suggest he'll have a game similar to Paul Pierce.

    He has looked good so far, better than I expected. But he's done next to nothing that Paul Pierce did at that age.
    Thanks everyone for the LeBron bets. All debts are paid on your behalves. I was happy to lose.
