barnes deserved it this year but im not too worried just yet. MKG is the youngest player in the league
this is just the typical overreaction to a nice playoff run. barnes is getting nice looks because every team is constantly thinking about triple teaming Curry. if we had Barnes idt he would be any better really. MKG is a better defender and maybe one day a decent shooter.
gotta wait n see imo
mkg is going to be a monster . i can definitely see mkg being a dpoy candidate , and he is one of the best rebounding sf's in the lg right now. dunlap was in love with spacing ,instead of beating an team with x's and o's and just good d, he wants to play real life like a video game and put nothing but 3 point shooters on the court. i still would pick mkg over barnes because barnes doesn't bring nothing else to the table(that is subject to change).alot of rookies improve in the offseason , but mkg improved during the season which is very rare. during the course of the year his mid range was on point. if barnes has a bad shooting game he's ineffective ,but if mkg has a bad shooting game , he can make up for it with free throws attempts , hustle,rebounding and defense.
Nope, I'm extremely happy with what we have in MKG.
A. being a set shooter playing off a guy who commands double teams and another fantastic shooter in Thompson
B. being a do-it-all guy who plays with little offensive firepower outside of your PG, who needs the ball in his own hands to be most effective
And yet MKG still had a better overall statistical season and had a bigger impact across the board (especially including his defense)
I feel MKG did far better than Barnes this season.
Victim of circumstance for both of them, but we'll see who the better player is in 5 years time.
Proud Australian Bobcats Fan!!!
He scored 25points, 7 boards, 1blk, was 10-18 shooting, and got to the line twice tonight in the playoffs.
Ill link stats http://espn.go.com/nba/player/stats/...arrison-barnes
Now tell me what team wouldnt want a 17ppg, 5rb, 1stl, sf.
As for MKG, can you not see / are blind?!? That is all the evidence you need. He cant shoot ie has a bad hitch in his shot and releases on the way down.
