While the Magic decided to surprise their world by choosing Paolo Bankero as their first pick and the Thunder were more down to earth with Chet Holmgren, the Rockets had plenty of time to pick Jabari Smith Jr. time was considered the best player. the first pick in the 2022 draft, which would be a great fit for the Rockets.
Jabari Smith’s profile is HERE!
So Woj is installed. Although he initially sent Auburn prospect Mickey, it was finally in Texas, more specifically with the Rockets, that Jabari Smith Jr. brought his talent to the table. The length, the shooting, the defense, the state of mind of William the Conqueror and a face that looks like some sort of mix of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kylian Mbappe and you get everything JS will bring to their new franchise who couldn’t pass up this opportunity. . A true elite shooter among the heart masons to be found on this team will clearly contrast, but also and above all, will bring a lot of benefit to fans of the franchise who will no longer have to wear hard hats on the construction site to look around the stands of the Toyota Center to ward off Jalen’s bricks Green or Kevin Porter Jr. In addition, Jabari will also bring protection and discipline to the team, which is so lacking.

They still talk about UFO 2m08, which sends Averaged 16.9 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2 assists., all at a brilliant 42% from long range, making over five shots per game from the post, and a great defensive ability that can come in very handy when you’re going to integrate a Rocket Pyro workforce and then with Zouaves like Jalen Green, Kevin Porter Jr., Marquis Criss, Trey Burke, Kenyon Martin Jr. and John Wall, there had to be at least some serious guy on this team. At 19 years old, Jabari Smith Jr. is nonetheless a diamond that has yet to be polished, especially with regards to his lateral movement and offensive palette, but Houston has just hit a big dose of hype. Like his Paris Saint-Germain counterpart, the crazy shooter could very well throw the “basketball he changed” on arrival before getting to work and showing his versatility on the inside, which would perfectly balance out what the backcourt will bring.
With Christian Wood out of Dallas, the Rockets needed a guy like Jabari Smith Jr., a real fourth with a mentality and a great work ethic, that’s what they found by putting their big paw into the Auburn team. But there is a real pool of talent between JS and Jalen Green in Houston and we hope to have a playoff with them very soon.
