Barnes on the Pitch

Warriors Swingman Visits with FC Barcelona and Manchester United

The NBA offseason allows for players to catch up on life outside the 94-by-50 foot rectangular playing surface they spend so much time occupying from October to (if successful) mid-June. While improving one’s game is always a major focal point of any player’s offseason, the summer months are also filled with spending quality time with family and friends, pursuing other interests and simply unwinding.

Warriors swingman Harrison Barnes has done all of the above in the month and a half since being crowned an NBA champion, and recently he got to spend some time on the pitch. With Manchester United taking on FC Barcelona in an international friendly last weekend in Santa Clara, Barnes had the chance to visit with both teams. Go behind the scenes with HB in the video below and learn more about his affinity for “the beautiful game.”
