One thing a young NBA player strives for is consistency. This is exactly what Harrison Barnes has been searching for so far this season.
When Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle asked Barnes about his contributions during the first half of this season, Barnes showed his maturity and honesty.
Asked how he would grade his first-half performance, the obsessive gym rat said, “Probably not that high. One thing I wanted to focus on was consistency, and I haven’t been able to accomplish that.”
Barnes has always shown an impressive sense of maturity and a veteran-like demeanor and told Simmons that he felt confident going into NBA All-Star Weekend.
Unfortunately, Barnes was overshadowed in the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge and “laid an egg” in the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest:
Not bad for a first time… Ok not my finest hour but it's my best dunk contest EVER. Thanks for supporting
