Both were deadly in the open court, point forwards and excellent rebounders for their position, but Pippen's defense set him apart. Plusses: Playmaking: Incredibly creative and precise passer. I'd go more Shabzz Muhamad. People who are taller then their wingspan are the minority in society. I think he'll be coachable and play in whatever role his coach wants him to. He won the FIBA U19 under aged. He’s not too big either. He's talented and from what little I've seen and read, he seems to work hard. I feel Penny was better than Hill contrary to the popular belief. Seriously though, I think he gets to all star level because he has the skills and tools. Shades of… Taller Jason Williams, Lonzo Ball. He is the modern day kevin willis.

However, with the right pairing, he could have given Scottie a run for Pre-injuries Grant Hill vs. Scottie Pippen All of this said, he would be a nice fit on the Magic because he'd be a nice fit on any team. Watch him at Duke this year to see how he handles playing with other guys who demand a high number of touches, it will be interesting. At last year u19 World Cup, he only shot 5/21 from three. Decent wingspans though, particularly Oubre. Cam Payne jumps out to me as the biggest loser from these measurements. This sub isn’t too high on him because they think in order to be a really good scorer you either need to be a 40% 3 pt shooter or really athletic. Hill was a better ball handler and had a better pull up jumper, but Pippen had a longer wingspan, was atleast as good of a passer, had a better post game and more range on his jumper. Hill didn't have the same shooting ability as Hardaway but far better handles than Barrett, a better first step and real point forward ability. That must be 6’6.5” with shoes…. Frank is the only guy on this entire list with a wingspan shorter then his real height without shoes.

He was a much better player than what his stats reflect and just a very creative, innovative and veteran savvy type of guy. I wouldn’t say I saw any signs for playmaking but he did seem like a high iq player that makes the right pass and knows where to be on the court. There are 6-4 gaurds with longer wingspans then him.

I dont see elite athleticism, moves, shooting, nothing. His smooth and shifty playstyle has the potential to be lethal if his scoring efficiency improves. I don't think he'd be a great primary facilitator, but he could eventually turn into something like DeMar DeRozan. Nice body too, so the tools are there to be a successful two-way guy.

Where logical evaluation and substance generate discussion, rather than conventional stereotypes and uninspiring cliches. Good footwork, very athletic, probably longer than Kobe, can pass at a really high level but it's probably last on his list if he can help it. Please enter your email address. To counter that last statement, what really good scorers on the wing aren't great shooters or athletes? Lost your password? He has all the tools of a lead scorer and with some passing ability. Sounds like he would be phenomenal next to Frank Ntilikina, although the shooting may not be good enough for both of them to coexist. It’s ridiculous, and it’s a mess.

When i see Barrett i see a kid who's more advanced for his age and stronger for his age than his peers. You will receive mail with link to set new password. My realistic comp is basically Wiggins physically in terms of wow athleticism. Their height on the court is what their height is in the basketball shoes that they wear. Also do you guys think he has the potential to be the lead facilitator on a team? His closest comparison is DeMar + KD but that’s not doing him justice.

Also how is his junpshot as a Magic fan I am hoping he improves as a shooter because he would be the perfect player next to Gordon, Isaac and Bamba. Could be a -14.70%? Winslow, Johnson and Oubre all seem a little short to be prototypical 3’s. I'm not sure he is #1 player on a championship team level, I think maybe Paul George level.

The thing that allowed Kobe to sniff GOAT conversation was his competitiveness, if RJ does indeed have that then if he's lucky enough to get paired with a Shaq or Pau/Bynum level teammate/s then who knows. The kid is a winner. Those are just a benefit of being a player's/coach's son and being groomed from a young age.
