Evan Mobley, one of the most highly rated prospects for the upcoming NBA Draft, spoke about his career goals during a meeting with the media.
“I think I’ll be a generational player that no one has really seen before. That’s what I’m aspiring to be, and I’m just going to keep working and staying in the gym until I get there.”
On what makes him different than other big men in the NBA
“My agility, length and defensive presence makes me different. I can guard almost every position and move my feet really well. On the offensive end, I can shoot the ball really well and run the floor.”
On who his game most resembles
“There’s a lot of players I’ve been told I resemble, but everyone’s game is different. Everyone has different tendencies. I wouldn’t say I have a perfect comparison to anyone. My game is my game.”
Mobley averaged 16.3 points, 8.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.9 blocks per game in his freshman season at USC.
