08:06 AM ET 10.10 | Harrison Barnes' strong camp has him pushing for playing time with the Warriors, who also have Brandon Rush vying for the same spot. Sources say Rush has advantage because ... Rush is clearly the better defender at this point. The starting lineup needs someone who can really make it tough for opposing perimeter stars, and Rush is even better with Andrew Bogut backing him up. Plus, to this point, Rush is shooting better. If Barnes did start, it would likely be because Mark Jackson already knows that Rush can thrive off the bench. Bringing Barnes off the bench, adding the task feeling a game out and getting going after sitting, might take away Barnes' aggressiveness and impact. Jackson said he hasn't decided.

Not the game...not the game...we're talking about PRACTICE! LMAO!!

Seriously though, I played ball with a lot of dudes who would light you up in practice but when the lights went on....they couldnt play dead. We'll see once the season starts. And also--if you cant beat out Brandon Rush then that was a waste of a pick

Does it really matters who starts for GS?

I agree Jgb. Barnes may be the best player in this draft and has the tools to be a star in the league.

You have to have high expectations from Barnes he is a Tarheel.
