    Never said he was a click generator. The statement itself is a click generator. Who is the rock solid source anyway?

    Essentially, he is very tall, really skilled, and still growing. For all practical purposes, he is a seven footer that can shoot, defend, and dribble. What's not to like?

    A source that would know. And the statement is a statement of fact passing along information.

    Does anyone have any Intel in if Jabari has grown any like Sengun did last season? He is still only 20 so seems he could possibly still add an inch or two before he's done.

    Time to add a back to basketball game. How can you not learn from one of the best, Alpe.

    Does anyone realize that when these giys are 27 they will be much much better. I know keeping them all might be an issue, but Jabari is going to get way way better and he’s already good.

    Sengun looks bigger and plays bigger. Bari looks more like 6'10 and plays more like 6'8.

    I still like Bari though, and hope he keeps improving.

    I wonder how many current rockets you have posted negatively about in relation to Sengun. I read something with Amen. Here it’s Jabari. Damn well know you have done it many times with Jalen. What an odd way to be a fan of a player/team.

    I don't know. I was courtside SL against Chet, and Jabari looked pretty menacing out there on defense.

    There is a player in there for Udoka and the weight room to unlock, a player that is PERFECT for Alperen to play with.

    Remember:

    "Alperen is our best player" - Jabari Smith Jr.

    As I said, I like Bari. This thread is about his height. There is an interview with Bari (I can't find it now) where he says something like "Alpi is bigger than me" or something like that.

    Bari is tall and lanky, I like his effort on defense, my only point was, he seems to "make himself smaller" a bit. He has a very good defensive stance, but he is so low usually that people seem to just shoot over him a lot.

    He provides very little weakside help too, compared to someone like an Evan Mobley, or an Eddie Griffin (RIP)...

    Contests the same number of shots at the rim as Kevin Durant.

    I hope he gets in the action more. He and Alperen can help each other.

    I'm talking about Rockets. You are talking about me. Feel free to put me on ignore if you cannot shake your obsession with me.

    So based on feedback, he's still the same height.
