    Welcome to your official fallout shelter in the event of a LeBron-to-LA nuclear apocalypse! Let's talk about Zion Williamson's phat azz, Bol Bol's 9'8" standing reach, and whoever Sekou Doumbouya is.

    Let's talk RJ Barrett, and a future backcourt that actually fits unlike 2012...

    I know very little about the 2019 class at the moment, but at a basic level, wouldn't Reddish be a more natural fit next to Sexton than Barrett?

    Sure. I don't know. The only two names I'm familiar with in this class are Zion and Barrett.

    I like Zion because he's a spooky 270+ pound forward and maybe that's a good thing. But both he and Barrett seem like super slasher/scorer types which doesn't seem like the best fit with Sexton. But again, I know next to nothing about these guys so don't take my word for it.

    I think Sexton and Barrett would be an excellent back court. Been thinking that ever since I started watching these prospects.

    I couldn't even make it all the way through that Barrett video...is he really like the best prospect in this draft?

    Yeah, left handed Kobe my ass. There's no place in the modern NBA for a SG who can't shoot or pass. I'm not ready to punt on Zion just yet, but the rest of these guys would have to look like totally different players next year to get me interested. Jontay made a great choice going back to school...he'll average 20/10/4 and go top-5.

    Damn. Y’all almost killed my spirit. Is it really that bad? Barrett doesn’t look bad to me. :bi polo:

    The whole bad shooter from high school thing makes sense, but Vince Carter has added a 3 pt shot, so it can be done. Most guys will go to college to work on their shooting. I don't think it is a true red flag unless the ft shooting is abysmal and the mechanics are horrible.

    Maybe that highlight video doesn't do him justice...but he looked like a smaller Marvin Bagley to me. And what do you even do with a Marvin Bagley that's only 6'7"?
