    This rookie class is fucking impressive. Barnes, Mobley, Cunningham, wagner all play 2 basketball, with high IQ. It's rare for rookies to be plus defenders. There's a lot of other interesting players too, this one has potential to be one of the all time draft classes by the time it shakes out
    Giddey too. It's been a fun and interesting class. Not the most offensively insane class but they will all get there.

    Draft experts: But what position will Barnes play at the NBA level?

    Raptors: Yes

    hate to say it but scottie hasn't been very good since he went back to the braids. shouldn't be too hard to rectify, hopefully he can make the adjustment.

    think that's the first time nurse had to sit him down the stretch. hopefully the last

    everyday i think about it and scottie at point just makes sense when and only when we get a real center. he can play power forward and i dont mind it but i want to see the ball in his hands making the reads

    That foul-line jumper he has is slick. High shooting pocket, quick and no wasted motion. Horford-esque.

    The intangible I love that scottie brings is his energy, his cheering and enthusiasm. He's a bit of a showboat, he'll scream like he just dunked over the French Olympian after a bucket sometimes.

    It's nice to have calm and cerebral like OG and Fred, or nice and disciplined like Pascal and Trent, but it's good to mix in that guy who primal screams and claps and gets the crowd going wild. Ibaka used to have that crowd pleasing energy.

    Random thought but we still have 4 hours to game time. In half a season, has Scottie already become the veteran presence replacing Kyle. Yes that sounds odd and is likely hyperbole but hear me out. I’ve never seen a player directing more traffic than I see Scottie doing. Even as he stepped in to separate a dust up between Pascal and Portis, he was pointing where people should go. My other question is, are people listening to him? That I have to watch for a bit more. Another interesting aspect of his game.
    Scottie is Gasol with the starters, Lowry with the bench and Kawhi in his spare time.

    His IQ is off the charts for a rookie. I can definitely see him being a leader/floor general sooner rather than later.
