    Yeah, I can see that.

    When he has that running start and a full head of team, he’s taking it all the way to the rack.

    Don't get me wrong....

    I think JC is an absolute steal at 24, love his game, his personality....

    I'm just very high on Mobley.

    Emoni Bates is way better than Mobley

    Don't do that.
    Don't ever do that.

    He reminds me of a younger Ron Artest.

    Assertive on both ends of the floor, can score in a variety of ways and facilitate an offense. JC may have more upside on the offensive end but if he can get close to prime Artest on the defensive end, he will be an amazing pick up for this squad!

    Really is an all around kind of player. Shown some 2 way talent. Not really “elite” at anything but pretty good at everything. He plays hard too.

    Jrue Holliday is a lofty comparison at the moment but that’s kinda who he brings to mind. A strong guard who does a bit of everything.

    this summer league squad would be absolutely roasting if porter was playing too

    Team is already averaging double digit wins.

    Not having Porter (and Wood) allows coaches to experiment.

    He has a really high ceiling from a physical stand point.

    He his nearly 6'5" with a 6'10" wingspan.... he has big hands, broad shoulder, a good center of gravity and he has the ability to add muscle to his frame. He has close to an ideal physical frame to be a guard in the modern NBA. He also is possibly the best athlete in his draft class. There are some guys that are quicker, some that move better side to side, some that have a higher vertical and some that get off the floor faster or have better body control..... but I am not sure there is anyone in this draft that does all these things well like Christopher does.

    He has tunnel vision at times, and he isn't as talented a shooter and Cunningham or Green... and while his actual handle is good, he isn't super polished... those all are things that can potentially limit him..... but he has the physical tools to be a lock down defender and a very good finisher.

    He is an interesting draft pick. He fell because of tunnel vision and poor shooting at ASU.... but it is a really small sample size. For example, Green had a few games where he shot really well from 3 and that bumped up his percentages. Had he not had even one of those really good games, and he may have fell to 4-5 in the draft. Had Barnes gotten off to a hot start from 3 and finished at 36-38% from 3, he may have gone #1 or #2.

    My point being is that there isn't a lot of actual game play and information on the players in this draft because of COVID and how it impacts people mentally differently.

    No he isn't.

    He is a better scorer but he isn't near the defender or passer that Mobley is. He also cannot guard 5 spots on the floor....
