Warriors Seeking an Aggressive Barnes
(Warriors coach Mark) Jackson said he thinks (Harrison) Barnes sometimes shows too much respect to the veterans, suppressing his game because he realizes he’s just a rookie. But at the same time, Jackson said he won’t “surrender possessions” to makes sure Barnes gets touches.
“It’s important for him to realize that he has the (green) light,” Jackson said. “If he wants to come down, get a rebound and facilitate a play, I want him to do that, and he has the light to do that. He has the light to go up to Steph and say, ‘Run my play.’ … I want to see him aggressive. And I think that’s going to come.”
