Hey everyone - obligatory first post here. I know workout videos are mostly worthless, but hey, it's the offseason and it's fun to look at our rook and see what he could possibly do in the league. For those who can't be bothered to sit through 26 mins of Shai and Jared Butler refusing to pass, here's some time stamps of Mobley doing some cool things :)

14:15 - Nice strong pick which sometimes hasn't always been the case in college
14:31 - Really solid defence on shai forcing him to pass it out (rare for this game!). Showed fast feet and hips and even though he gets slightly blown by, his length allows him to get in front and put strong pressure on a really good smaller player. Arguably one of his best traits and will be excited to see more of this in action
15:24 - Solid defence on Yuta, showed more of the same as above. Even when he gets beat by quicker players, he is so long that he can recover to put good contests.
18:10 - Mobley brings the ball up the court and flashes a strong, quick cross over. Gets locked up in the paint due to lack of strength but makes a really good pass in the lane intended for the cutting guard (who doesn't cut quick enough). With strong cutter on out team (Sexton, Okoro etc), this will be an easy lay in or dunk every time.
19:57 - Catches it on the 3-point line and shows a solid handle to get past a stronger defender in the paint (possible foul?)
21:29 - Nice one-dribble pull up 3, looking smooth even with a hand in his face.
22:44 - Posts up a smaller player and puts up a clean looking one dribble fadeaway in the paint
23:58 - Catches on the outside, flashes a good handle to beat Yuta and shows good agression for a nice poster. His length combined with his handle and speed will be nice to see in the League.
24:24 - Recognises Yuta is guarding him closely on the 3 line and puts up a good shot. Nice to see him willing to take the 3. Will be important that he attempts them to open up the floor for us.
25:17 - Shows a nice handle to get into the paint. Once double teamed, he shows his visision to the cutting man. Again, this will be cash with Isaac and Collin being the strong cutters they are.

Welcome aboard!

Sounds like you were able to take a look back through the thread before joining in. You never want to jump into the pool without dipping a toe in first.

You working out at the YMCA would be just as funny to me.. Just random guys, or better yet, video of Mobley eating a sandwhich at subway...nothing special, just him eating...hilarious
Will be tough to beat Giannis’ video going through Chick-Fil-A and ordering 50.

Taco Bell should offer a Tacko Challenge in NEO - free taco if Tacko gets a bucket.

When the Cavaliers sucked in the Stephen era there was a Chick-Fil-A challenge. One night the Cavs were getting crushed but they had a chance to hit the target. Crowd was going nuts but Joe Tait was hilarious, calling it like it was a Game 7. After the game he went on about how “the chicken was in the balance.” Another Legendary Cleveland sports moment when our team sucked.

Don't forget about the Cavs having 2 infamous Chalupa nights. One where the Mavs ran up the score on us in 2001, and another when LeBron wouldn't run up the score in 2008.

And LeBron was obnoxious about the free chalupas after the game. Made a point of mocking fans because they wanted a free chalupa, but still wanted said fans to buy his overpriced footwear.

Hey everyone, RoadTrippin' (Podcast with Channing Frye, Richard Jefferson and Allie Clifton) just released an episode featuring Evan Mobley - really fun listen for anyone who is interested. Some notable parts were:
- Evan said he's comfortable playing PF, being on the outside, and using his mobility to drive past slower bigs, and also center when teams go small. He said the teams plan this year is to protect the paint and get as many blocks as possible.
- Evan said he really likes JB Bickerstaff. RJ and Channing also spoke very highly of JBB.
- Evan said he was surprised by the fast pace of the game in summer league, the spacing and the physicality. He mentioned that he's already working with out with our trainers in the weight room and has gained a few pounds.
- RJ asked who on the team has gone out of their way to make Evan feel comfortable as a Cav, and he said DG is the one always inviting him places (DG becoming the leader!!)

Best line came off of asking Evan how his Trojans will do next year. Evan said "i think we can go just as far, the elite eight as we have most of the same pieces coming back", Frye started laughing and said "Except you, the #3 pick...its like ordering a burger without the burger"

Hilarious.
