Barnes faces uncertain future with Warriors

There is no LVP award, and the Warriors surely had their share of players not answering the bell in what was the most historic collapse in NBA Finals history. But Harrison Barnes would probably receive that harsh honor after he picked the worst time to go ice cold. While Sunday wasn’t as bad as his Games 5 and 6 were, he still missed wide-open shots as the Cavaliers dared him to beat them. (SFGate)

Brice Johnson: Tar Heel

Brice Johnson: "It’s going to be weird not having to look over my shoulder and having [Roy Williams] in my ear constantly. Then again, he’ll probably figure out a way to get in touch and yell at me no matter where I am. Because of my teammates and the entire UNC community, I’m going to play in the NBA. And because of coach, I’m going to enter the league as a man." (The Players' Tribune)

Brice Johnson and the NBA Draft

The landing spot for former UNC forward Brice Johnson in the 2016 NBA Draft is wide open. The 6-10, 230-pound four-year Carolina player could go anywhere from mid-first round to early second round.

Non-conference college basketball games to get amped for

NBA Finals: It can only get better for Harrison Barnes

With Warriors forward Harrison Barnes in a shooting slump heading into Game 7 of the NBA Finals, it was story time with coach Steve Kerr. Kerr told Barnes of how before he made the winning shot in Game 6 of the Finals that clinched the championship for the Chicago Bulls in 1997, he was struggling himself having missed six straight 3-pointers before the game. (San Jose Mercury News)

Harrison Barnes can’t be a no-show again for Warriors

While James and Irving have been fantastic – scoring 82 and 64 points each over the past two games – they haven’t been solely responsible for Cleveland rolling over the Warriors like a locomotive and seizing the upper hand. Missing-in-acton Warriors forward Harrison Barnes has helped greatly. (Sacramento Bee)

Brice Johnson works out for Celtics

Brice Johnson is projected by some to be selected in the middle part or the end of the first round on Thursday night, and the Celtics own the Nos. 16 and 23 choices in addition to the No. 3 pick. After working out in four different cities beginning Wednesday and for five teams in six days, Johnson was ready for a break after his session with the Celtics. (Patriot Ledger)

Barnes just not giving Warriors enough in Finals

In good times and bad, it seems, the credit and culpability is collective. But after the past two losses, as the Cavs have overwhelmed the Warriors while setting the stage for an epic season finale, Harrison Barnes is officially running the risk of becoming that guy. (USA Today)

Tar Heels need Brice Johnson to be a first rounder

It’s not often that North Carolina goes two years in a row without pumping out a first-round pick in the NBA Draft. Since leaving Kansas to become UNC’s head coach in 2003, Roy Williams has produced 15 first-rounders. The last time the program went back-to-back years without sending a player to the first round was after his first season as the head man in Chapel Hill, back in 2004. (Today's U)

Marcus Paige out to prove he can play point guard in the NBA

Former North Carolina guard Marcus Paige spent the past month looking to change some minds. For various reasons, Paige didn’t play much point guard for the Tar Heels his last two seasons. So in 11 pre-draft workouts so far, headed into Thursday night’s NBA draft, Paige has been pushing the agenda he really is a point guard. (Charlotte Observer)

NBA Finals: Harrison Barnes on a bad salary drive

In his final week before restricted free agency, Harrison Barnes is giving the appearance that he has departed early from the NBA Finals. If he doesn't pull it together by Sunday's Game 7 at Oracle Arena, the Warriors just might let him go for good. (San Jose Mercury News)

Seventh Woods is much more than just a star basketball player

From the time he entered this world it seemed as if Seventh Woods was a special kind of kid, whether on the basketball court where he once was named the nation’s best 14-year-old player, or in his bedroom where he posted self-written prayers on the walls, or with his decision to fulfill a childhood dream of playing collegiately at North Carolina. (The State)
