BEST OF MAXIM
When it was all said and done North Carolina had four players go in the first round of last night’s NBA Draft. That was no surprise. However what was much of a surprise was how they went, and I will begin with the first one picked… Harrison Barnes, who did not surprise anyone by being the first of the quartet taken, but might have surprised some how he fell. The sophomore small...
The Washington Wizards have chosen Bradley Beal of Florida with the No. 3 pick in the NBA draft.
The 6-foot-4 freshman guard averaged 14.8 points and 6.5 rebounds for the Gators last season. Beal, who turned 19 on Thursday, joins a backcourt headlined by John Wall, the first selection in the 2010 draft.
The Wizards finished were 20-46 last season. Washington closed the season on...
Brad Beal is the player that the Washington Wizards wanted all along. This will be great for point guard John Wall a shooter.
I really like this kid’s game; I think he might be the best freshman in this class. Beal can flat out shoot the basketball that’s what he is best at. His stroke is real smooth; he has a quick release. He has excellent range on his shot....
Harrison Barnes scouting report, SF North Carolina
Seth’s Take: It wasn’t too long ago that Harrison Barnes was one of, if not the top prospect coming out of high school and was a lock to be a top pick in the NBA Draft, and hell with the Bobcats picking second he still could be, but the shine came off once he got into college and it truly never came back.
Barnes has the prototypical...
We're less than 24 hours from the start of the NBA Draft, and that's when the rumors kick in to high gear. However, it's not often a rumor gets started because of something a player says during the Green Room interviews a day before the draft. That's just what happened when Bradley Beal told ESPN that several non-lottery teams, most notably the Oklahoma City Thunder...
The Golden State Warriors had to be thrilled that Barnes was still on the board. He will fit right in with their type of play. He likes to get up and down and he can shoot the three. Barnes has a chance to be the best pure scorer out of this draft class.
His game reminds people of Joe Johnson with more upside. Barnes’ jump shot is textbook; he is an effective three...

The Golden State Warriors picked up one of the most talented offensive players in the draft by selecting North Carolina forward Harrison Barnes with the No. 7 overall pick of Thursday's NBA draft. Bob Myers, hired as the Warriors new general manager recently, told the San Francisco Chronicle that his phone "almost blew up" when Barnes slipped to No. 7, because...
1.Bradley Beal Florida Fr. 6’4” – I really like this kid’s game; I think he might be the best freshman in this class. Beal can flat out shoot the basketball that’s what he is best at.

North Carolina wing Harrison Barnes was selected by the Golden State Warriors with the No. 7 overall pick in the NBA Draft on Thursday.
Nobody will ever know if the Golden State Warriors prioritized need or went with the best available talent with the No. 7 pick of the draft. That's because, as far as Golden State was concerned, North Carolina small forward Harrison Barnes fit both bills when it came time for the club to make its lottery selection. The leading scorer on a powerful Tar Heels team last season...
The Washington Wizards used the third pick in the NBA draft to select Bradley Beal, the 6-foot-4 shooting guard out of Florida. Beal should make a nice backcourt paring with point guard John Wall, who will be entering his third season in a Wizards uniform. The Wizards worked out Beal on June 14 and seemed impressed with his skill and maturity. Beal, who celebrated his 19th birthday...
