The NBA Draft is almost here and one of the most intriguing prospects at the top of the lottery is USC big man Evan Mobley. The seven footer's game has drawn comparisons to reigning finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and All-NBA big man Anthony Davis, but questions over his introverted personality and skinny frame have some evaluators questioning if he can actually reach his incredible upside. The Athletic's Sam Vecenie spent some time with Mobley during his lone college season and he joins us to discuss whether the concerns over the big man's mentality are overblown and whether or not he could actually become the best player in this draft. Then he tells us about his evaluation of presumptive number one pick Cade Cunningham and picks one player who could be this draft's most undervalued prospect.
