There’s been quite the buzz around the basketball world as of late for Auburn Tigers freshman superstar Jabari Smith to go #1 in the 2022 NBA draft. 

Smith is a 6-10, 220 pound forward who averages 16.2 PPG/6.9 RPG/2.2 APG/1.7 SPG on 44.6% FG/42.9% 3-PT/83.3% FT shooting numbers.

The 18-year-old said in an interview back in 2020 that he compares himself to Anthony Davis & Kristaps Porzingis and watches film of Jayson Tatum.

“I would right now compare myself to Anthony Davis, Kristaps Porziņģis, and guys like that. I try to watch Jayson Tatum and how simple he plays. I of course look up to my dad and how he played when he was younger.”
