Before the start of the college basketball season, Harrison Barnes was thought by most to be the clear cut No.1 NBA prospect.

He's gotten off to a slow start, averaging just over 11.0 PPG and shooting 34 percent from the field. Still, his potential is undeniable.

He can score from anywhere on the floor, is fundamentally sound, smart and a great athlete.

The major knocks on him are his inconsistent shooting stroke and a perceived lack of the killer instinct seen in greats such as Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan.

It is highly unlikely that Barnes will slip below lottery-pick status, as it sometimes takes players a bit of time to adjust to a higher level of competition.

There are many, many other players in the college ranks who will be having their names called by David Stern come June.
