Guess who’s a big RJ Barrett fan?

His recent Duke predecessor Jayson Tatum.

Currently making a huge impression in the NBA playoffs, Tatum discussed Barrett with Adam Zagoria and said that Barrett was more athletic than he was and has a “bright future.”

Somewhat like Tatum himself. Given Boston’s ridiculous collection of draft picks, there’s a chance they could end up teammates soon.

Unfortunately for Tatum, Barrett is pulling for Cleveland and expects the Rockets to win the championship.
