SNY NBA Insider Ian Begley is joined by NBA trainer Shawn Farmer to break down the strengths and weaknesses of Knicks rookie RJ Barrett's jumpshot. Farmer has trained current Knicks guard Dennis Smith Jr. and other top talent coming out of the state of North Carolina.
One of the main talking points about Barrett's game is his jumpshot. He is averaging 39.3 percent from the field so far this season, and 32.9 percent from beyond the arc.
Getting Barrett to have a more consistent jumper over time is a definite area the Knicks will need to help him work on, and Farmer has some suggestions on how he'll do that. But he also discusses what he likes when Barrett pulls up.
Farmer also talks about why he believes Barrett's shooting abilities can be compared to that of future Hall of Famer Dwyane Wade.
