The uniqueness of Scottie Barnes as a prospect made NBA comparisons difficult to draw in preparation for the 2021 NBA Draft.
How do you project a 6-foot-9 point guard in a power forward's body that can literally do a little bit of everything on each end of the floor? Is he like Draymond Green? Boris Diaw? Jabari Parker? Those names (which all were pre-draft comparisons) show the range of what pundits felt Barnes could end up becoming in the league.
As it turns out, the best comparison is one that might have seemed ridiculous ahead of the NBA Draft, but a quarter of the way through Barnes' rookie season, it's impossible to ignore the shades of Giannis Antetokounmpo in his game.
I mean, come on.
