I see more of the Jaren Jackson Jr. archetype once he gains another 20+ lbs, but I get that he's more mobile and a better passer than JJJ. It also looks like he can do more in isolation than JJJ.
Jackson Jr better shot blocker, but Mobley is better almost everywhere else
JJJ is obviously also a better shooter and driver. Not really close right now.
Shooter for sure. Mobley's 2 for 3 on the year and he takes a minute to load up. I wouldn't put JJJ in the same conversation as Mobley as a driver though. Mobley with noticeably much better handle and balance. JJJ kinda looks like young Jerami Grant sometimes when he puts it on the deck. I like this comparison overall though. It's funny that when JJJ was a prospect people *cough* Cole Zwicker *cough* touted his defense as if he was the next KG but he ended up (so far) being pretty mediocre on that end. Mobley seems to have some real questions about his strength and IQ on defense so we'll see how they turn out as NBA players.
