Not sure I would agree with this characterization - even with Zion in there, Barrett got the ball a ton down the stretch of close games. In the 3 games Duke lost with Zion on the court, Barrett took a combined 9 shots in the last minute, to 1 for Zion. He is comfortable as an alpha. Just not sure he is that good. Duke's lack of shooters really hindered his game though. I know this is kind of a weird comparison, but in a way his game is similar to LeBron, but with much less strength. He likes to drive, is a good passer, and is a mediocre outside shooter. LeBron with no outside shooters becomes a lot less effective (though still the GOAT). I don't think we saw the best of Barrett this year.
