Harrison Barnes came into North Carolina under the immense hype of being the first ever Freshman Preseason All American selection since 1986.  Barnes was never really able to live up to those lofty standards in Raleigh,  and two years later, the Golden State Warriors selected him 7th overall.  Barnes has been a worth substitute so far this season, but he stepped back into the star light last night with an emphatic dunk against Minnesota. Check it out below.

Pretty impressive. To my knowledge, this is the early front runner for dunk of the year.  He might keep it, at least until Blake Griffin returns from injury.
