    I'd rather wait and see what he's good at or if he's even any good first. :D

    You can't tell by the film. I guess I'm so deep into his scouting I know. Hell I started to go back to watch his daddy film so I can get a feel for things he would pass down to jr

    Bari seems to be the go-to atm.

    I get it this is more ala The Beard, The Point God, The Greek Freak, etc. nicknames but I think the Bari & Tari duo will have a nice ring to it on the court.

    I watched a lot of dudes in college that weren't good enough to get a nickname in the NBA. I don't know what he'll be in the NBA. There are a lot of scouting reports on YouTube you can go back and look at and laugh years later (assuming they haven't been deleted). :D

    In the tradition of J. Smith's in Rocket red, Jabari will be the new J Smoove.
