Thanks for sharing..was this from today or when he was in Toronto before?

Not entirely sure but I’m assuming it’s from before since he doesn’t have the braids here

Barnes makes it easier for Boucher and Siakam to share a rotation. Ideally he can play as a PG/pointforward or just spotting up offensively while defensively he can guard the center. This would allow Boucher and Siakam to play outside of the post defensively and at the very least OG, Barnes and Boucher can take turns there as I don't think Siakam seems too interested in guarding bigs.

Having Barnes and Boucher share a rotation off the bench could end up being a thing. First two off the bench type of deal. Should be an interesting seism. Can't wait.

The Scottie Barnes/Raptors stuff starts at 29:30!

Takeaways:
1) Scottie built like a house
2) Did everything you wanted from him i.e. transition, showed midrange and some deep
3) Expecting big things from Flynn this year
4) You can tell why Raps picked him
5) Scottie doesn’t have to be locked into a position i.e. positionless
6) Scottie will be a menace on D
7) Scottie has a shot to be one of the most impressive rookies this year
8) You don’t walk away vehemently disagreeing with those who believe Scottie could be the best player in this draft!

So disrespectful. **** all the Americans that think their isn’t some anti raptors agenda in the American media. So many examples over the years. This is why when we add another superstar potential talent next lottery to the core it’ll be hilarious, dad dick these bozos for years.

Lol, who the heck cares about these polls? At this stage you should just accept that Americans are different from the rest of the world and move on. There's some strange need to always upstage other countries. These polls end up looking like jokes by end of year anyway.

I don't remember the last time I read an SI article. All they've been producing is low-effort clickbait for years.

I love it. It feeds into the whole mentality of the team being disrespected and an underdog, which will make Scottie feel right at home.

A lot of media seem to overlook the impact of Barnes joining a team with a winning culture.

i) Detroit - made the playoffs 2 times in 12 years and were swept in the 1st round both times.

ii) Orlando - made the playoffs 2 times in 9 years and lost 4-1 in the 1st round both times.

iii) Cleveland - without LeBron they have had one (barely) winning season (42-40) and have only won more than 24 games once since 1997!

iv) Houston - their most experienced players are Eric Gordon and DJ Augustin, they lost 20 straight games last year, and other than a 6 game winning streak just before that losing streak they only won 2 games in a row once (both against Sacramento)

I'm not saying this is all inaccurate, but he's literally looking at one jump shot.

nba 2k, when youplay they have interviews with rookies, and once of the poll question you get asked as a player is to pick the potential roty, cade jalen evan and suggs are the choices

that being said, it is probably my top 4 as well, with mobley the least likely so it not a big slight imo

atleast the tagged scottie barnes in the tweet.

Don’t think it’s a anti raptor agenda, more that they want to push the narrative of it being a 4 player draft.

Scottie won’t get a chance to play 30+ minutes, take a bunch of shots like the other draftees.

I know OG is going to be guarding the best wing players on the other team but in situations where there are switches and matchup changes it'll be fun to see what Barnes can and can't do vs elite big wings/forwards like Tatum, KD, etc.
