His ability to galvanize people is truly impressive. He’s gotta be the ultimate teammate!


Fam needs to put his phone down and look both ways before crossing the street, toronto cars will hit anyone without care!!

If he develops his explosiveness at the rim. Watch out.

I think we need to temper expectations a bit. Barnes came out earlier than OG and Siakam and while he was the higher draft pick, there's still going to be a lot of growing pains that come with developing a big, especially on the offensive side of ball.

OG was the 23rd overall pick and Pascal was 27th overall. I think it's fair for the expectations of our 4th overall pick to be higher than that.

not as many vets and scorers on the team this time so barnes will get more opportunities.

Scottie should be spending most of his time working on his jump shot and free throws!

That video was 17 seconds long, which still leaves...[checks math]...yep, most of his time to work on those other things.

And back in the day I used to think I was a boss because I could dunk from one step behind the DOTTED line. :/

Cool to see that he has a bit of a goofy personality like Dwight. What’s also cool is that he appears to be an absolute killer on the court, unlike Dwight.

He reminds me a bit of a combination of Dwight off the court, but a mix of Rasheed Wallace and Garnett on the court.

Goofy guy off the court, but on the court extremely intense, screams after dunks/blocks, claps in people's faces, taunts opposing players.

Will be a fan favorite, I have zero doubt about that.

He's an interesting prospect. Almost like a blank canvass to mold into anything. I don't think he has the half court ball handling ability to really be a Ben Simmons/Giannis, but I'd like to be surprised. Floor is Draymond Green, which is pretty high. Jumper, ball handling will ultimately decide how great he becomes.

he doesnt have the crispness on the handle just yet - but he does go for some interesting dribble moves at times, or sets himself up for interesting leaners/floaters that still require something-something.

His passing is pretty amazing tho - smart player - i remember one play in the summer league where he ended up falling down to get a loose ball and he just calmly passes to a teammate for a wide open 3 pointer from his butt without any hesitation or panic

He’ll be great next to a shot creator prospect, someone that can iso and move off ball (Emoni, Banchero, Hardy?).

Current draymond or the best version of draymond? Because that Draymond was a DPOY and one of the best playmakers in the league at that position. Not saying it can't happen, but that's a pretty high floor.. I see his floor as being current day OG, which is a great piece but not a #4 pick.
