Last year at North Carolina, Harrison Barnes told The Atlantic that he came back to school for his sophomore year to help build his brand. The statement didn’t go over so well with the general public. But now, as a pro, the rookie has developed a new strategy.
Just dunk the living hell out of the basketball.
Blake Griffin implemented this strategy too and won over America, and Kia.
Here was Barnes’ first — and I think best — highlight dunk of his young career.
Two more violent flushes on oversized white men after the jump
Barnes, who is averaging 8.9 ppg and 4.5 rpg, has recently decided to put his plan into high gear. This dunk was on Saturday and the final one was on Monday.
After this one in Toronto he sat by his locker waiting for Kia to call. Still nothing though.
