    That's what I said.

    They were talking on KSR today about it not affecting this incoming group, because the CBA might not even be agreed upon until late 2011 or early 2012 or whenever it's decided. I hope you're right, but something tells me this class won't be affected by it.

    With Barnes returning Chad Ford bumped Kanter to #3 from #4, Knight to #6 from #8 and Jones to #9 from #10.

    I think all three will go in the top ten.

    Knight was always in the top ten, he is now projected as 5th. Barnes should of left. Knight should also leave, but we shall see. The pending lockout has put a fly in the ointment.

    Can't answer for Sullinger but Barnes very eloquently stated that he enjoys being in Chapel Hill and that in his journey of life he still wants to be in college and that he isn't ready for the NBA journey of his life and that he wants to win a championship at UNC. Never mentioned the lockout.

    I really don't think the lockout is as big a factor as it would seem.

    I think so too. I think all three should be top ten picks.

    Somethings just not adding up here. Sullinger and Barnes are both highly intelligent guys with strong support systems and good family structure. Both have decided to stay in school. Knight is right there with them in the smarts and strong support system category he may have the same thought process as them. There has to be reasons a guy like Barnes comawes back to Chapel Hill, as hot as Knight got in the tourney there was no one playing hotter at the end of the season this side of Kemba Walker than Barnes. He showed he was ready, he proved he was a top three pick, but he decides to stay in school. Just makes me wonder if theres a strong enough buzz going around about the lockout that most of these guys that would normally have went have decided to come back.

    Chad Ford's 2012 Mock Draft has Davis at #1 and Barnes at #2 and it seemed like all UNC and UK players with Rivers an Sullinger sprinkled in to make the top ten.

    Yeah but by all accounts Irving, Barnes, Sullinger and Knight all come from families where money is not an issue. I don't know about Jones and his situation but if your family is financially stable then the lockout shouldn't be an issue.
