The Toronto Raptors’ rookie Scottie Barnes has made an impressive start to his NBA career. The fourth overall pick of the 2021 Draft led the Raptors to another win Friday over the Orlando Magic.
In one instance during last night’s game, it took just three dribbles for Barnes to go from his team’s painted area to the opposite side of the court for an emphatic full-court slam.
ESPN analyst Kendrick Perkins reacted to the highlight, claiming that only two players can do that stuff in the NBA today, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kevin Durant.
Barnes has been excellent in his first six games of the season with Toronto, averaging 17.7 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 2.2 assists through six games.
