Harrison Barnes Enters Cartoon Universe

With the Warriors preparing to take on a full-strength Cleveland Cavaliers team after being pushed to the brink by the Thunder in the Western Conference Finals, it's objectively been a pretty busy time for Golden State in recent days.

But Warriors forward Harrison Barnes still somehow found the time to make a splash off the floor.

Nicknamed "The Senator" by his teammates, the fourth-year pro has openly expressed a desire to become involved in politics following the end of his NBA career, and he may have just taken the first step there.

In this video posted to the Warriors' YouTube account, Barnes goes into animated form in an homage to the classic 20th century School House Rock political cartoons, conversing with an animated ballot while explaining the popular and electoral voting processes to his viewers:

"Your vote is your voice; don't miss your opportunity to be heard," Barnes tells his audience, working to ensure that his legacy entails far more than his accomplishments on the hardwood.

But Barnes is also doing his share on the court by averaging 8.9 points and 4.8 rebounds on 36.2 percent three-point shooting in 17 postseason games. Barnes and his record-setting Warriors will begin their title defense in Game 1 against the Cavaliers on Thursday evening.
