Why Scottie Barnes sometimes seems uninterested in the court

Amit Mann and C.J. Miles examine why Scottie Barnes could look passive on the court in the most recent edition of “Strictly Hoops.” On the podcast feed for “Raptors Over Everything,” you may find the complete episode.

AMIT MANN: Do you believe that he may be a little more submissive when he is on the court with Fred and Pascal?

C. J. Miles, It’s difficult not to, isn’t it?


C. J. Miles If you understand what I mean, it would have to be. like in particular when you were a boy. That isn’t to imply that he doesn’t believe in himself. He does. However, it seems as though you are seated next to these two A-listers.


CJ MILES: —and you feel like, as a basketball player, you try to make the proper plays against players who, you know, are showing who they are and what they can do every night. You know, those players make the proper plays, so you can probably make the right play a lot of the time by passing the ball to Pascal or engaging in the action alongside Freddy. And I don’t really believe it is respected; rather, I believe it is just trying to play basketball properly.

Yes, AMIT Mann. In a way, it’s a positive trait since he prioritizes victory. The Ringer reporter Seerat Sohi and I recorded a podcast where she discussed this same subject. Scottie, she said, always put winning first from a young age. And losing, as though it really irritates him. And it’s a bit cliché to imply that someone becomes upset after he wins, in my opinion. However, he truly finds it upsetting. He will prioritize victory over his own personal statistics, am I right?

Which, in my opinion, definitely corresponds with the Raptors, their brand, Masai Ujiri, and all that sort of stuff. However, in the context of that, I’m referring to whether the offense is clicking and things are moving along—and they were scoring points yesterday. However, I believe Fred and Pascal left the floor in the first few minutes of the fourth quarter. He kind of had to be the musician that initiates, orchestrates, creates, and finishes the piece, and he settled into a groove. It’s difficult to score on Jaren Jackson, too.
