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.
