“I like Harden for him a little bit,” Boyle notes as he ponders an buying mt 2k20 comparison. “Harden was not a great shooter coming out of school, but [he was] good. Not a great handle, even now [Harden] sometimes has too many turnovers. But he’s good enough that he plays the point. His assist to turnover ratio, his steal ratio, when you go to positive/negative is strong enough…Overall, it’s been a good experience and [Harden] would be a guy to look at [in comparison to Barrett].”
The Harden comparison is far from perfect, but the biggest similarity is both players’ ability to attack the basket. Barrett possesses more athleticism than Harden, giving him an above-the-rim component to his game the Rockets superstar does not possess.
Barrett understands the attention to detail needed to continue his upward trajectory.
“I’m always a leader in any situation I’m going into,” Barrett says. “I’ve been the leader here for the past couple years, and these are just the little things we do to show its a brotherhood. Make everything about them, not as much as you…It’s the little things I try to do to bring us closer together.”
Is all the praise Barrett has received premature? We are not too far removed from high schoolers being the top NBA prospects in the country. If players did not need to be a year removed from high school graduation to enter the 2k20 mt pc draft, Barrett would be mentioned in the same category as Bagley, Luka Doncic and the other top lottery prospects.
