I'm starting to get a little of this feel with Barnes as well. Given the choice, I would take Lamb over Barnes. I feel he's a better defender, more athletic, slighty better shooter, and longer. If Lamb was the #1 recruit coming out of high school he'd be getting a lot more hype from draft scouts.
Yeah I completely agree. Nobody is saying Barnes isnt a very good player, but hes so methodical. Against a team like UNC-Ashville, youd expect a potential POY and #1 pick to stand out a little more athletically. He's pretty guardable and if you dont give him open 3's hell get his 15 or so pts but not 25 to 30 . He's just average when it comes creating his own shot and making things happen individually. You wont see him make either of the 2 sick plays Lamb made; baseline SLAM or crossover shake pullup 3. Lamb has a chance to be a star in the NBA (call me crazy but I see a lot of Durant in Lamb). I dont see that high of a ceiling for Barnes.
