Contrary to what social media might tell you, RJ Barrett is not a bust. Let me be the one to offer the short list of reasons why. He's 19 years old, playing basketball for the first time in a few months, and has just three games under his belt … in the Summer League.
First impressions are everything, and Barrett's wasn't exactly pretty. In his first two games, he made just 21 percent (7-for-33) of his shots and went 2-for-13 from beyond the arc. His shot selection, turnovers and, well, a lot, were rough.
