Is the NBA season over or not? Who knows?

Functionally it is, of course, and that goes double or the New York Knicks, who were just 21-45.

Duke fans have a vested interest in the Knicks because of RJ Barrett, who may or may not have finished his rookie season in 66 games.

So where does he stand?

Well he showed a lot of potential and also immense heart. Still, he has stuff to work on. This article break his strengths and weaknesses down and is uncertain about how good he will ultimately be.

We’ll say this for Barrett; he’s a worker. He surely understands what he needs to work on and just as surely has already been doing it. The Knicks will be fine.
