Former North Carolina standout and Golden State Warriors rookie forward Harrison Barnes makes his first pro trip back to North Carolina Monday night when the Warriors face the Charlotte Bobcats. Barnes has started all 20 games this season and averages 9.3 points and 4.8 rebounds for the 13-7 Warriors. He talked Saturday afternoon with staff writer Jonathan Jones about his rookie season, his most surreal moment and his thoughts on this season’s Tar Heels’ basketball team. Q. The first question has to be about that dunk two weeks ago over Minnesota’s Nikola Pekovic. How did that play develop and were you surprised when you saw the replay?
