    Dude they are going in and out and or hitting the back rim. If they were missing completely or barely grazing the rim I would be worried

    Jabari is playing well, you can see his strenghts and how he compensates for all the misses.

    I like that hes taking all the shots he can get...they will start going in.

    I do see a bit of weakness in his awareness at times. There are times where he could be more agressive on both ends of the floor

    Jabari is going to be fine

    I just feel like those of you who thought he could be our 2nd scorer are asking for too much

    Nothing wrong with being an elite perimeter defender & elite 3 pt shooter. An elite role player is fine

    He can’t dribble, can’t shoot or finish. How the hell was he the consensus number 1 pick of the draft?

    I wonder what Jabari’s actual ceiling is.

    I know we all want him to play all star level now but most players take a few seasons to get there and most never do.

    It's the Josh show again.... and I wish they'd quit with this split-screen.

    Yes. It take reps to get better. He was drafted for who he can become, not who he is now.

    The team easily could contend if he develops; much more so any other Rockets players in the SL. I would prioritize his development over every other player on that roster during this week.

    Rather this than take only 5 shots. I love his defense, effort, passing, rebounding at least.

    Yeah. Just like we wanted Green to get shots up. We want our young players to develop.

    If Bari is ever going to be a star offensive player that means he has to shoot and get used to shooting.

    If we want to develop a role player then we tell him to pass it to the other guys.

    He can shoot just needs to have better Guards to set him up... he is just not a 2nd go to guy... he might be a 3rd go to guy.

    I know the graphs you are talking about. He was in low percentiles for like other guys considered for top 10 picks I think. Not the whole draft class.
