Taking an opponent off the dribble is easier when he’s bigger and slower than it is when he can match your athleticism. And it’s easier to get open looks when you are playing in more space, with one less defender between you and the basket. “The biggest difference between playing the 3 and the 4 is defensive responsibility. As a 3, you are able to roam a bit, but you mostly lock in to your man,” said Barnes. “As a 4, you call a lot more pick-and-roll coverages, and a lot of the rebounding responsibility comes to you. You have to be smart about rim protection, knowing that there’s not somebody behind you.”
Dirk Nowitzki insists he didn’t intend to disrespect Chandler Parsons while praising his replacement on the Dallas Mavericks. Some believed that Nowitzki slyly called out Parsons while raving about the work ethic of new Mavs small forward Harrison Barnes. “There’s been tons of guys that told me that they were gym rats and I’ve never seen them in the gym at nights, but this guy is constantly in here, mornings and nights,” Nowitzki said of Barnes at media day, which was similar to his comments the previous week on his new teammate. “He wants to be great.”

Tim MacMahon: Harrison Barnes on his limited Team USA role: “It was one of those situations where you have to sacrifice. Obviously when you make the Olympic team, you want to show what you can do on the world’s biggest stage. At the same time, winning gold took precedent. We didn’t want to be the team that either lost the win streak or didn’t come home with the gold. Those are the things that we as a team said we were going to put everything to the side and focus on that, and we came through.”
