He has to start screening better. It's almost inexcusable.
If he continues screening like that then he might as well just slip every screen. It would be much better. Just slip the screen at the top and get the ball in the short roll and be a decision from that area. Just screening so badly doesn't put his PG or him in a position to do anything. Slipping quickly puts the Cavs in a favorable position. Especially that teams now take away the Garland-Allen PnR coupled with the lack of spacing with Lamar in there. The lack of PnR makes the spacing much, much worse because we just don't create any rotations. With Mobley slipping and getting the ball in the short roll Lamar will be able to either shoot the corner 3 (rather than the 3 from the wing) or make the back door cut.
What's weird to me is how well he blocks and how strong he looks then. But when you're talking about going for boards or screening, he looks like he's the weakest player on the floor. Mitchell was bodying him a couple of times, and though Donny is about the same weight as Mobley, that shouldn't happen.
With his frame and weight I’d rather be not set too many bruising screens. We have Allen for that
Same weight but taller means Mobley has a higher center of gravity. That's generally not an advantage when it comes to boxing out and screening.
His screening is awful. He doesnt even wait for contact to big rolling.
He will learn, Mobley has allot of talent, we all know i have been team Mobley, but his screaning and fear of contact is a huge minus. He seems to want to get stronger so I dont usually bring it up, but since you did i will say my peace.
There is no perfect player, not Lebron, Not Jorday, not Hakeem, but I still think Mobely can become a MVP level player despite his lack of boxing out or screening which i hope he becomes average at some day.
Some thought Alllen and Mobley couldnt work together, I think Allen and his toughness are a perfect fit Mobley.
There are rumours his dick is too long and he just doesnt want to penetrate opposing players when he screens.
They dont call him Mobley Dick for nothing.
