Here’s a solid breakdown of RJ Barrett’s game from CBSSports. We started to read it thinking well come on, the guy is 18 years old, give him a bit of time to work on things.
Which is basically the conclusion that Kyle Boone came to.
We’re so focused on the NBA now that it’s impossible to see anyone anymore as a work in progress - and Barrett is already very good. He’s a freshman averaging 23 ppg, 7.2 rpg and 3.7 apg. He can play four positions and more than handled point guard responsibilities.
In years past, we’d be talking about where he might be as a senior. Just imagine that.
He’ll be fine. He’s already fine actually and as he, like every other player, works on his weaknesses, he’ll be even better.
