Long 3-and-D wing vs dynamic scorer
Sigh. Can I still vote Wagner? Dude is going to be a beast. Though his defense strikes me as overrated relative to Wagner's, I definitely like Moody's smooth stroke and solid two way potential with an ideal NBA frame and pretty good presence and BBIQ. Ithink that I'd generally be satisfied with he, Bouknight or Wagner, probably in reverse order, though the choice between Moody and Bouknight is a tossup for me. I dothink people are underestimating how inexperienced Bouknight is, given that he didn't start playing ball until high school, but I also think Moody's upside is formidable.
> Josh Giddey confirmed that he met with the Warriors a week or so ago. Interview, no workout.
He has such a high floor.
He knocks down all kinds of difficult jumpers including the horizontal drifts. And you can't coach that wingspan.
He looks more NBA ready than Bouknight already, yet he's nearly 2 years younger.
Seems like a no-brainer (I must be missing something.)
Moooooody! Championship teams need guys who can score and defend. I find the notion that the 18-year-old Moody has almost already reached his ceiling absurd.
Hey ya'll, so I made a thing: https://zealous-ramanujan-12ae5c.netlify.app/vote
The idea is we all go in there and submit our vote, and then eventually the homepage will be the DNHQ big board based on an averaging of all of our votes. Voting section works now, if anyone actually uses it I'll finish up the home page part. Voting is honor system, so please don't vote for someone else, or try to vote more than once.
I'll jump on the Moody bandwagon.
Moody! This one's easy.
Irrelevant to this post: While it's not what I'd do, I've also been daydreaming about what a Mitchell/Klay/Garuba/Draymond/Wiggins lineup would look like just on defense. That half of the court would be fun to watch, at least.
The grumpy prophet over the nocturnal reader.
Wow. I never watch college basketball, and I realize everyone looks good in their highlights, but these guys look terrific. I'd be glad to have either/both.
And for all the talk of how proficient a scorer bouknight is we need to give moody the same props for his efficiency as a freshman leading his team
Moody, bouknight is a ridiculous scorer forsure, but some of them games he got tunnel vision even worse then jordan Clarkson which is kind of ridiculous, idc how bad your teammates are something's are just not playing the game right lol
Man these two are evenly matched -
Moody by the virtue of position
I’m voting for Moody, who looks like he’s running away with it. Besides all the great comments below, I get the sense that he’s a better fit in the Warriors selfless culture/system; he’s willing to pass up a good shot for a better one and works hard on defense. Bouknight seems a little more about himself.
My order is Moody>Wagner>Bouknight at 7. That said, I’ll will trust the front office se guys. I hate to admit it, but they know more than I do. (Ok you’re right, I probably know much more than they do, but they’ve been able to talk to these guys, look ‘em in the eye, give ‘em a firm handshake and see what they’re made of.)
Moody. Although this was super close for me. I think Moody is the better fit for the warriors system and will provide a contribution earlier than Bouknight, particularly on defense.
Moody seems like he fits this team perfectly, could be productive and useful in his first season, and has a skill he is very good at (getting to the line) that the team is not particularly strong in. It seems like he has some decent upside too. Would not be mad at picking Bouknight but he seems more one-dimensional, even though that dimension he offers is important.
