Counterpoint: AD was just as 'frail' as Mobley is

    Yeah, my draft order is exactly what @Clutch posted on Monday. If Cade is gone, I'd like Mobley but I'd be just as happy if we took Green.

    I watched all of USC's games during the tournament and have read articles and watched youtube interviews to glean some insight into Mobley's soft skills, character, and personality and so far I like what I've seen and read. So much so, in fact, that if we don't draft him I think I'll keep an eye on his career a little wherever he goes. I don't know... I just like the kid and think, at minimum, he will go to a few all-star games in his career and his ceiling hall of fame (pending major injuries of course).

    Watching videos of the top three potential prospects of the Rockets, I have to agree the safe pick is Green. Cade Cunningham looks too slow and not very athletic to me. I really like the highlights of Mobley. Looks very agile for a big man, but big men are very prone to injury and very high chance of a bust.

    I dont think it is a fair question to ask cuz Mobley is a big man why are people asking him to be MJ?
    Since when do forwards insist they have to take the last shot to kill the opponent?

    Why doesnt green have a defensive mindset? Why doesnt Suggs have a better J? These questions are a lot more fair to ask than wondering why Mobley doesnt have mamba mentality smh

    If Mobley had that alpha dog mentality and was scoring 25 pts a night on top of guarding guys 1-5 and getting 3 blocks a game guess what he wont be the favorite for no 2 he'd be consensus no 1.
