Very feminine this evening…
 
WTF. No 3 point attempts in the last 2 losses. Quit being a pussy, Evan.

He has looked softer and slower than we need him to be mentally and physically. I think he’s been as much of a problem as Garland.

Dude, Mobley with the last being the exception, has been a + player. Saying this just further illustrates your nonsense
 
Can you imagine if Embiid had been playing? Yikes! I for one seriously wonder if he's going to be an asset in the playoffs. I think there's legitimate reasons for that to be a concern.
 
There were a few moments where I was at the least expecting a mean mug from Mobley after some aggressive play but the pansy just walked away expressionless. This guy is the softest player in the league and I don’t see an avenue for him to toughen up. Not in his DNA.
 
I disagree. Mobley is noticably stronger and more physical in taking the ball to the hole this year. Unfortunately, he still hasn't developed a jump hook or consistent fallaway in the paint when his path to the rim is blocked. He's shooting 37% in the 4-14 foot range and that won't cut it.

He's getting better at muscling his way to a dunk or layup and the 3-point shot is coming along nicely, although his release is so slow that he needs to be completely undefended for it to go down. It's that short midrange game that he needs to develop. When he does he'll be an offensive and defensive force.

As for now he's still averaging 15.5 points in 31 minutes on 58% overall and 40% on 3's. That's not bad, especially on a team with Mitchell, Garland, Strus, and LeVert - guys who take a lot of shots.

I love his career trajectory. Here are his numbers for his first three seasons:

FG%: 50.8%, 55.4%, 58.0%
3PT%: 25.0%, 21.6%, 40.0%
FT%: 66.3%, 67.4%, 74.2%
Rebounds per game: 8.3, 9.0, 10.1

Evan is relentless in his training and wants to be great. From everything I've heard his work ethic is exceptional. He came to the NBA after just one year of college. He doesn't turn 23 until after the season. He's highly intelligent and extremely motivated. His curve is still trending up and I expect it to continue for a couple more years.
