Well, you're comparing a 25 year old to a 20 year old.... physically I think Barnes can get stronger, faster too. I wasn't comparing stats, and JJ scored in college too, but Barnes was better in college than JJ was. I like JJ and haven't been a fan of Barnes as some have, but Barnes still projects out better than JJ... maybe just more well rounded and not as able to make explosive plays, but likely with better BBIQ
