The Knicks’ anticipation for RJ Barrett to All-Star glory has been palpable. The previous season, Barrett showcased his skills as he averaged 19.6 points, 2.8 assists, and five rebounds in 73 games while shooting .434 from the field. In particular, his three-point accuracy saw a decline, sitting 3% and 7% below his record of 40% in 2020-21.
If Barrett can amplify his shots while maintaining his defensive stance, he might just get his first All-Star nod. Given the ample playing time he receives, it’s up to Barrett to make every minute count.
