I'm worried about him going pro with the way he ended the season.

I'm not. He needs to develop a 3. They NBA is very 3centric now.

I think Moody needs another year. At the next level you have to be able to create some type of space. He hasn't learned to do that yet. Baylor showed he struggles with tight D and the D on the next level will be like that almost every night. With that being said, the faster you get there, the faster to get out of the rookie contract. Could be a great shooter but will he get the development opportunities at the next level??? The NBA will discard you very quickly if you can't play.

it blows my mind that Mason Jones can go undrafted but Moody is a top 6 pick.


Pretty much how I see most NFL and NBA picks.

It is crazy how an undeniable game changer in college doesn’t even get a 2nd glance, but a kid you forget is playing large portions of games is a lotto pick.

re: Just My Opinion
He aggravated senseless running into the trap along the baseline and just pulling up like a 5th grader.

If you drive the baseline you elevate and take your shot drawing contact. Especially if it's a trap your going into. Hopefully someone is cutting to the basket to give you an outlet when you jump to shoot over it or pass.

Our half court offense lacks some basic elements and our guys for the most part didn't have the instincts to play above the scheme.

Also losing KK Robinson for the year is bigger than most realize. He was that drive and dish PG that a lot of y'all are saying we need.

We played small ball without multiple outside shooting threats.

It makes Moody easy to guard. He had a rough stretch but averaged 17/game through the SEC.

Y’all don’t know shite.

NBA drafts on metrics and averages. He will be fine.

I know he struggles to create his own shot and when he does he isn't consistent.

But Moody can’t go pro after these performances. I forget he is even out there for long stretches of the game.

He isn’t very assertive and I don’t think that’s a good thing.


Why in the world are you guys shitting on Moses?

Dude had a rough stretch in the tourney, so what? He still managed 12, 15, 14, and 11 points in NCAAt games. Without Moody we are not in the Elite 8 and without Moody we are not a 3 seed and do not finish second in the SEC.

I would love for him to come back.

It is really strange. Moody deserves some criticism no doubt but way too many people calling him a quitter or saying he was just playing not to get hurt.

Agreed. He is a freshman. Kid could’ve gone anywhere he wanted. He wanted to stay home and play for his state and make us proud. He did that. He has the demeanor of Kawai in a way. Very relaxed and emotionless on the floor. It doesn’t mean he isn’t interested. The moment at times did seem to but for him, but I am just guessing. If it is true, so what? They guy is a freshman.

I don't think he quit. I just think he would benefit from another year here. I'd hate to see him go to the NBA and miss an opportunity to get better.

Yeah some of these comments are so bizarre. He had a rough stretch and it obviously had a toll on his confidence. We are a better team with him playing and it'd be awesome if he came back. Unfortunately that's probably not happening.

We made a deep tourney run and he played poorly in it. We got it close a couple of times and he lobbed up bricks that killed momentum.

I was over it the second the game ended. He gave us a great season and I will root for him in the future.......

but it's the day after we lost. Are you reeeeeeallly confused by our fanbase shitting on him some? They care and are angry. It's perfectly normal behavior for fans

Shitting on him by saying he was playing bad? No

Saying he will be remember as a quitter? Hell yes

That being said, most fans are just talking about his poor games which I don't think there is anything wrong with but some people need some perspective on the whole season.

You all say you can criticize but only the way you see it.

I’m not saying he is a quitter, I’m saying I forget he is even out there for large portions of the game and it has been that way for most of the year.

People will chill out. We aren't even 12 hours out at this point. 24 hour rule is still in effect.

I just hope they aren't tweeting awful shite to the kid.

I’m sure there are some morons that are doing that. Every fanbase has a Harvey Updyke.

re: Just My Opinion
Folks need to remember that the role Moody played on our team and the role everyone wanted him to play is NOT the role he will play in the NBA. He will not be asked to create his own shot, he will hang out on the 3 pt line and catch and shoot and can guard the other team 1-5. That is what he is being drafted for and that is why his draft stock doesn't line up to people's expectations for him. He was never a volume scorer who can create his own shot, and never will be. He will be a starter on an NBA team for the next 10 years and will make serious bank doing so.

I guess I just always figured when you see a NBA player playing against lesser competitors it would be obvious. Like watching a High Schooler play against elementary kids.

Also never said he shouldn’t go. Should always take the NBA money whenever you can. All colleges are for is getting people better jobs, either through education, networking or showing superior athletic prowess.

Nah, not what I'm saying at all. If you are going to call a player a quitter than there better be some really good evidence to back that up. Too many people are conflating having bad games, being passive (which as you said he has been most of the season) with quitting on the team.

I don't disagree with any of this, I'm talking about the fans calling him a quitter or something along those lines.

Devin Booker is having a fine NBA career without creating his own shot. Maybe he can now but he absolutely couldn’t at the same stage of his career.
