Default Is anyone else impressed immensely by Moon's hops?

It's not only that he can get so high, but he does it so consistently... and he can really get up there... I saw him alter a couple of shots because of his athletic ability... I am really hoping he stays, but he could be one of the guys you don't hear about after anymore...

I really hope he stays too. I like his ability to alter shots and run the floor, if he works on his defense I can see him as being a JYD type of player...energy, hops, defense, hustle.

Never really noticed him either. I saw him on the floor but he didn't stand out at all.

Impressed? ... by the Celtics against the Raps and Minny. It actually looked like they could play as a team. New big three almost looked in midseason form. Surprised.

I would love a JYD type player that the fans love. No Alvin Williams, MoPete, JYD, Keon Clark, Oakley anymore...

I noticed his hops, bricks, and turnovers. I appreciate his athleticism and hustle but he's a major long shot to make the team.

I agree about the Celtics, looking very strong. Perkins looks, dare I say.. GOOD.

For his first bigtime game in the NBA, he looked very confident...he took shots, missed them, kept taking them and ended making some. That is confidence and what breeds a star...He won't by any means be a star because is current skill set, but he has heart, and thats what this team breeds on. Sure he had a few turnovers and risky plays, but overall, he was confident.

athletic no doubt, just a bit out of control
can rebound firce turnovers, but forces just as many
i think he'll make the team, minutes-wise, i have no clue how he's gonna fit since we're pretty deep at the 3
