    Agreed. Jabari will be a perfect number 2 if he develops. A 6'11" all NBA Defender with a 3 pt shot, and can be a high post release valve. And I think that is a realistic scenario for him. I really like his passion and grit, and hopefully as he gets stronger he will put it to good use.

    I think he's the guy that will benefit the most from Ime.

    I don't mind Jabari falling in the redraft, but WTF Chet is there. He hasn't even played a single minute in the regular NBA, NADA, ZERO. Also, Tari played well enough to deserve a spot.

    It's exactly because Chet has played zero game that he is given the benefit of the doubt. His predraft hype is still there, except maybe a notch lower because of the heightened health concern. So he's there kind of by default.

    If Jabari was injured and did not play, he would probably be in there as well, around where he was before the draft.

    I honestly think that's a dumb reasoning since redraft is supposed to draft with the benefit of hindsight. We've seen players who have injury issues/risks fall down the draft like Dariq Whitehead and Cam Whitmore and the concern si they might be injury prone right? Chet literally missed his rookie year due to injury but keeps his place due to default? lol

    It's just as dumb as when Jaden Hardy realized he would have been picked in the lottery if he sat out his entire year just like Shaeden Sharpe rather than playing in GLeague Ignite.

    Chet seems to be a defensive dog, an injury prone defensive dog.

    This looks like Jabari is going 1/2 speed with the kid, not seriously ‘getting cooked’ Social media is goofy

    Yeah Jabari clearly wasn't playing seriously.

    However what I don't like is he was missing on open looks. Seems like he still hasn't fixed his shot or w/e was bothering him. He should be automatic if left wide open or not contested.

    I'm more worried about Bari's effort levels.
    Gets handed the starting spot by Fail Silas and now thinks he doesn't even have to try against some kid?????

    The arrogance.

    Bari seemed like he turned a corner at the end of the season and seemed to shoot well in motion. We will see what he decides to bring this season. I am excited!

    That's AJ Dybantsa. He may end up being a top/top-5 recruit in the next couple of years. About the only good thing (?) about the video is that Jabari doesn't seem to be trying too hard, but I think he still would've had a tough time against him. lol.
