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.”
Storyline: Olympic Games
Justin Anderson on the combination of himself, Harrison Barnes and Wes Matthews as perimeter defenders: “When you say those three names, all I can think of is one of the best perimeter defensive teams in the league. Deron’s no slack at guarding the point. He guards the best point guards. So it’s not like we have to hide him or put him on the three man like some other point guards in the NBA. He’ll take Steph (Curry), he’ll take Kyrie (Irving), he’ll take whoever. And then sometimes Wesley’s competitiveness, ‘We got a shooting guard, no D-Will, you take him, I want to pick him up full court.’
Tim MacMahon: Dirk Nowitzki on Harrison Barnes: “I think he wants and he has the work ethic to develop into a great all-around player. I already heard all summer long whenever he was here, he’s in the gym all the time. A lot of guys come here, sign here or get traded here and they’re telling me they’re gym rats, but I haven’t really seen many in my 18 years, but he’s the one guy that walks the walk. He’s there in the morning, we’re working out with the guys, he goes back at night and he wants to get better.”
