Why I like this year’s team.
Speed. Teamwork. I think that basically explains it for me. Last year’s Carolina team was young but talented. When I look at this year’s players everything seems to fit. More guards, big guys who look like they can run, and players who can shoot. I think we will try to wear teams out with a fast pace of basketball….get ready!
TRY NOT TO LAUGH AT THIS VIDEO….
Harrison Barnes is good. Real good.
Questions to answer this season
How well can these players defend?
THE GUARDS ALL SEEM QUICK. HOPEFULLY THEY WILL BE OK THERE. NOT SURE HOW WE WILL DEFEND THE SLASHING FORWARDS AND BIG GUYS IN THE LEAGUE. HENSON HAS PUT ON SOME WEIGHT AND LOOKS TO BE ABLE TO HIT THE SHORT RANGE JUMPER NOW.
LOTS OF LEADERSHIP ON THIS TEAM i THINK.
I THINK ALL THE PLAYERS WANT TO GET THE PROGRAM BACK TO THE FINAL FOUR THIS SEASON AND WILL WORK HARD TO MAKE IT HAPPEN. EXPECTATIONS ARE HIGH BUT I DON’T THINK CAROLINA IS FAR AND AWAY THE BEST TEAM….THEY ARE ONE OF THE BEST AND WILL HAVE TO WORK HARD FOR A CHAMPIONSHIP.
Will Roy have anyone kicked out of the Dean Dome this season?
NO, I DON’T THINK SO. I THINK HE IS ON A MISSION THIS YEAR AND WILL NOT BE DISTRACTED BY OTHERS.
IS HARRISON BARNES THAT DUDE? YES, I THINK HE COULD BE!
’57 HEELS STOP WILT THE STILT…AND WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP!
