If Harrison Barnes Goes to UNC….
Now — while there’s still hours before we know where he’s headed — it’s still reasonable to think about what it would be like if Harrison Barnes comes to UNC.
Oh, how glorious.
Starting Line-up assuming Ed Davis leaves for the NBA
PG – Larry Drew II
SG – Dexter Strickland
SF – Harrison Barnes
PF – John Henson
C – Tyler Zeller
Now, realizing that Henson could be gone as well. That would likely put one of the Wear twins in the power forward position. Regardless, Carolina would play big, and play fast. Add to that the fact that UNC would have blue chippers Kendall Marshall as a backup point guard, and Reggie Bullock at small forward shooting guard coming in as freshmen, and you’ve got a lot of talent. Marshall is high-profile enough that he might challenge for a starting spot. Plus Will Graves, Leslie McDonald and Justin Watts would be getting minutes and that’s a 12-man rotation. Talk about deep. This team would no doubt challenge for a national championship.
And after Tyler Hansbrough stayed for four years, it can’t be helped to ask: What if Ed Davis stays?
Think about that, Harrison. Think about it.
