    Yeah it’s a real in-depth breakdown. Different sections. First two minutes show his athleticism.

    At the 2:25 mark is when they start showing Green’s ability to get his own shot.

    Skim through some it if necessary.

    Yeaaaaaaah I probably should have watched the next few minutes. It's a highlight reel and all, but his talent and skills at his size are ludicrous. Now I'm gonna watch the rest and see if he can play defense. Not a lot of highlight shows of defense, they don't get the views, but we'll see.

    Love that youtube channel btw, thanks for that. I was too busy watching the action to really notice the comments at the bottom of the screen, but that's a cool feature too.

    He's raw, but so is every teenager. Has the ability to play good team/individual defense but you can tell he's never been asked to (or coached to) do it before in his life (he's been the best player on the court since he was in elementary school, I'd imagine, athleticism gets you a long way in those circles) so you can see the fixable lapses.

    I now have a 3rd player next to Mobley and Cade to get semi-geeked about. Any others?

    I just want Green more and more. The league is due for another elite SG in the mold of Kobe or Jordan. Guys who can just outright get buckets and take over games offensively. Cade is a safe choice, Mobley is going to be good but his position hurts him.

    I really like Suggs. He is an animal all over the court. I'm no NBA scout so he may not be a good pro but i love how he was diving for loose balls and making really tight passes. His shot needs some work. I also like Cunningham a lot. Mobley looks good too. I've never watched Green. But it should be a good pick no matter who they pick (in the top 4).

    He is raw but very physically gifted as an athlete and has good coordination.

    He has risen in some scouts eyes based on his performance in the G League and the comments of the coaching staff in the G League where he is said to have an excellent work ethic and is very mentally inclined towards the game.

    He is about 6'6" with a pedestrian wingspan but has the athleticism to become a high end offensive and defensive player.

    Personally he looked really raw to me, and he has a lot to work on but he did still find a way to put up points.

    His appeal is upside as his explosiveness and IQ lead some to think he will ultimately be the best player in this draft.

    If the Rockets draft him, it will likely take him a year or two to be a good player.

    Mobley has the skills and potential of a number one pick but his frame worries me. Hopefully he's more KG than Jonathon Isaac or Jaren Jackson Jr.

    Im gonna take it hard if we have to give our pick to OKC. Personally, I'm taking Mobley, Cunningham,Green,Suggs in that order.

    Is there date set for lottery?

    I am not a guy who really knocks guys because of what other guys did at the same program but when was the last time a Duke guy lived up to the billing?

    Been some epic bust the last 5 years or so.
