    I never really watch college bball. I might catch a couple games here and there, but never really follow. I watch the tourney, but that's about it. Most of my understanding of players come from what others say. Then I watch a player and see what it is. I know watching one game means nothing, but Cade proved what I've heard plenty of people say about him.

    But for your question, Cade will go number one because of his size and skill set, but I'll go with Suggs.

    How does Mobley compare to Wiseman?

    Wiseman gets most of his points by being under the basket and being 7 foot. He has an ugly top of the head shot. He got picked high due to a weak draft. He has more sand in his pants and evan has more agility.

    Mobley is way craftier and can spot up for a 3. He doesnt have durant type guard skills but he likes play back to the basket and facilitate the ball with good IQ.

    We need to decide if KPJ is the go of our future cuz we can’t have a roster with three pg’s who need to start.

    if he is the. We need to draft either Kuminga or Mobley.

    green is an undersized SG and I m not choosing any undersized options for this team... we’re already small even though Mobley is undersized at least he’s 7 foot. And he mobile enough where we can play him and Wood together

    Jalen Green is the home run pick. He can be a superstar with his athleticism and skillset.

    Cunningham is the safe choice and he might be decent but a top 5 player? I don't know.

    Corey Kispert with 4 more threes today in the win. Shooting 59% from three in the tournament thru two wins.

    Yawn.

    Been going back and forth between Cade and Mobley.

    But Mobley's upside is crazy.

    I just hope he stays under the radar and either Cade or Suggs go 1st overall.

    Worst comes to worst, package a trade up to 3rd or lower to grab him.

    I agree we need to see if porter is the main ball handler going forward but in what world is Jalen green an undersized sg?

    Watched him all year, and yeah, not as impressed as most of you knuckleheads on here. Rather have Simmons tbh. Top 10 pick? Sure Top 5 pick? Nope. You act like other players on OK St. didn't step up this year for that 21-9, lol Hoping Minny takes him and leaves us with Suggs, the next bonafide All-Star out of next years class. A better version of Brandon Roy. Cade is like a Shaun Livingston to me, size, flashy, but no substance.

    I think Mobley won't fall below the 3rd pick unless Kuminga rises there. I don't think that will happen. Suggs isn't a top 3 talent imo. I have him going at 4 or 5.

    Suggs and Mobley are 1a and 1b. Mobley if you want big numbers and future trade value, Suggs if you want winning.

    Green is the only lock for me. At worst he's Wiggins (decent NBA player), at best maybe a Booker/Lavine all star level. The others guys seem to have some minimal bust potential.

    I'm right there with you
    Whatever is needed to get Mobley to the Rockets

    My only hesitation is that I'm still not convinced he will ever grow into the 'Alpha' role at the next level

    Much like Garnett proved to be, and Davis looks to be, Mobley may always be better as the #2 to a true lead scorer

    If that's the case, I can see how Cade remains the fav to go first

    In fairness, Jokic was way ahead of all others as he's a star material. The only thing encouraging with Sotto is he's still developing while Jokic at 17 is almost developed already. Asians aren't exactly known to be as muscular as Europeans at least when young. Who knows, but we'll see in another year's time or two.
