There is a famous aphorism that says that people live up to their names. Luckily for the Suns' newest addition, one would be hard-pressed to find a more regal name than Earl Barron.
But one's character and destiny is defined by action and when Barron was confronted with the greatest gut-check moment of his NBA career, he couldn’t have been more nobler in his response.
Despite averaging 11.7 points, 11 rebounds and 33.1 minutes in seven games for the Knicks last season, Barron didn’t find himself on anyone’s roster at the beginning of this season. He didn’t even receive an invitation to someone’s training camp.
