Last five games since coming back from h/s protocols:

44/72 FGM/FGA
61.1 percent from the floor
1 three (just 7 attempts)
73.3 percent from the line

He's been putting the ball in the basket, that's for damn sure.

I think he has earned it, but unfortunately the East is loaded at forward. KD, Giannis, etc.,

Another unfortunate thing for the Cavs is that point guards in the East are all playing well right now. Young is putting up MVP numbers, Holiday is quietly having a very efficient season on both ends, VanVleet has turned sniper and put up a 37-10-10 triple double the other night, LaMelo is having a decent season and very popular with fans, Lonzo might be as good of defender as Holiday and can shoot, etc., DG has his work cut out for him to get into the ASG.

Quick search on Stathead to find rookie comps for Mobley based on a few parameters.

First set of parameters. These are Mobley's stats as of today.

- Must be a rookie.
- Must 20 y/o or younger in rookie season.
- Must have started at least 31 games.
- Must have blocked at least 1.8 shots per game.
- Must have shot at least 50% on FGA.

Results:

1. Shaq.
2. Chris Webber.
3. Anthony Davis.
4. Brook Lopez.

3 Hall of Famers (though some would argue 1 of those doesn't belong). 1 very good player.

AD in the HoF is questionable. And I hesitate to call Shaq "good"

I think you're trying to be funny, but if you're not...Anthony Davis, according to basketball reference's hall of fame probability metric (which is very accurate), has a 98.6% chance of making the HOF if he retired today. He has many seasons left in him, obviously.

Do the mixtape jersey's look good in person? I am thinking of buying a Mobley one but may wait till we get better regular jerseys. I like the mixtape ones on screen but not sure how they would translate in person as they are a different look with a logo instead of team name

Once the score reached 95-94 vs. Sacramento, Mobley goes on an offensive stretch that accounted for 12 of the team's next 14 points, putting the Cavs up 109-99:

Oop from Allen
Pick and pop made floater
Pick and roll dish to Allen for made dunk
Pick and roll made floater and-1
Pick and pop dish to Lauri for made 3

i think it was the exact same play every time too. Double drag up high with Lauri ghosting his screen and Mobley flashing to the top of the key. They’d trap Garland and Mobley made the right decision pretty much every time until the team just ran out of gas.
