Where's the love for this kid or at least a ranking?
He's one of Purdue's top players and their clutch shooter. I think he's got NBA "6th Man of the Year" written all over him, especially given his ability to score and play both PG/SG.
I would like him in a Chicago Bulls uniform next season, no question.
No way, not in Bulls uniform, I rather see Brandon Paul in the "red". He's o.k. but not NBA level.
Moore is a crafty scorer and is very effcient he is a willing passer but most likely will have a career overseas. I dont see him sticking in the league as he is an undersized combo guard that isnt explosive but does have the iq to take him places!
Moore, another Indiana guy, is very underrated... Always has been. Didn't get the hype that Eric Gordon, Jeff Teague and others from Indiana got, BUT... He's the one who led his team to the Class 4A State Title in 2007. He doesn't do anything to blow you away, but he's very solid. He's super confident, has a high IQ and isn't phased by pressure. Great character on and off the court. Hard worker. Great teammate. I have no doubts that he'll play in the NBA.
tezo is right, this kid is definitely an NBA player in my eyes...he's a great scorer, a proven winner, the best player on one of the best teams in the nation, hes 6'4'' is a great combo guard, i can see him being a randy foye type in the league
Randy Foye is way more athletic... I see a more willing passing Flip Murray.
I see the Flip Murray comparison much mroe than Foye, but I know that Moore would have to take a tough road to the NBA. He's a solid college player, but he's undersized and not very athletic or quick. He also doesn't have a niche tto hang his hat on...He seems like an overseas player to me in all honesty. I'd be shocked if he were able to make NBA teams for an extended period of time...
E'Twaun Moore led his High School Team to the State Championship, not Eric Gordon.
"East Chicago Central defeated North Central 87-83 for the Indiana Class 4A crown in what must have been a great game. We can only imagine, since it’s not on regular television in this part of the state. Purdue recruit E’Twaun Moore led the winners with 28 points and received the Trester Award in the heralded matchup with Indiana recruit Eric Gordon, who had 25 points for North Central."
E'twaun Moore is clutch and showed he can complete and come up big when it counts the most. I think he is very under-rated. I look forward to his development throughout this season.
That was a heck of a game last night. Evan Turner showed his value in the second half. That's a Chicago PG for you, tough, talented and determined. He might go second in the draft. I wouldn't be surprised.
I thought E'Twaun Moore played pretty well. He missed a few FT-throws and some open 3 point shots, but he did make some nice passes and drives to the hoop. If he learns to bend his knees and put more leg into his shots, he'll start putting up 20 point games on a regular basis.
I saw the Purdue vs. Northwestern game tonight and so did John Paxson the VP of Player Operations for the Chicago Bulls. He was in the stands scouting E'Twaun Moore and Robbie Hummel. Well, despite a loss, those two guys played very good games. E'Twaun had 24 points, including 9/9 from the FT-line and Robbie added 20 points.
Now, if it were me, I would draft E'Twaun Moore over Robbie Hummel.
E'Twaun Moore is atop the SG Power Rankings at Rivals.com.

I want him on the Chicago Bulls, so everyone keep quiet.
REMINDS ME OF FLIP.. but flip is very athletic as well for those who dont seem to think so
Yeah I'm late on the Moore bandwagon but this guy can ball. If he doesn't play the point in the NBA I think he can at least defend the position. I actually now think Purdue has TWO first rounders on their team in Moore and JuJuan Johnson.
If you look at some of the other 6'4" SG's in the NBA, like Thornton, Ellington, Gordon, Meeks, etc. they all weigh 200lbs. E'Twaun Moore is listed at 184lbs. He's going to have to gain 15lbs of muscle and/or strength for the next level.
He's so good in the lane that the extra weight will only help him absorb more contact and come off screens. He doesn't mind posting up or attacking the rim.
He's seems to be Purdue's Go-To-Guy. He handled that role nicely vs. Wisconsin.
Get on the Band-Wagon now, before it fills up. That includes NBADRAFT.net and Draftexpress. I can't believe all the so called experts who are missing out on this kid. WAKE UP!!!
This kid is CLUTCH and plays BIG against the top teams.
All I can say is, "Chicagoland kids are no joke. They can play!!!"
Just plain Indianaland. Yeah I've been on the band wagon since his high school days. Grew up in that area and Moore, Harandgody, Hummel and Martin ( was with Purdue now at Norte Dame all grew up in that area. Read about them in the paper constantly. Indiana produces ballers all over from the Gary metro area to the Indinapolis metro area to Fort Wayne and South Bend and some of the small towns thoughout. I wouldn't dare put us up against the Chicago or NYC but as a state we make the best of what we have.
East Chicago, Indiana, where E'Twaun Moore is from, is only 30 minutes and some 20 miles outside the City of Chicago. Lake County is within the Chicago TV viewing area. I do realize he is an Indiana kid though.
THE MAP OF CHICAGOLAND:
It's too bad that Bruce Weber, head coach of Illinois, decided to spend his time recruiting Eric Gordon, instead of E'Twaun Moore. That was a BAD DECISION on so many levels.
I want this kid on the Chicago Bulls!!!
i agree they do produce some good ballers and wouldnt put them up there with dc/maryland, nyc, chi but they are close. we always had trouble going there and playing in aau tournaments (luke recker gave us work)
and im not sure if anyone around my age remebers but another kid who i used to play against while in utah and aau
I'm from Indianapolis and I'd put us up against the Chicago and NY areas any day of the week. Do you realize how many top college players and NBA players we've produced in the last ten years?
Jason Gardner - McDonald's All-American... Arizona four year starter... overseas career
Chris Hill - Michigan State... four year starter... overseas career.
Chris Thomas - McDonald's All-American... Notre Dame... overseas career

I could keep going... I'm missing a lot of players. You're underrating your own state!
The Chicagoland area produces the best guards in the country.
Case in point...
- Isiah Thomas
- Maurice Cheeks
- Tim Hardaway
- Doc Rivers
- Dwyane Wade
- Derrick Rose
- Shannon Brown
- Dee Brown
- Q. Richardson
- Will Bynum
- Luther Head
- Julian Wright
- Kendall Gill
- Nick Anderson
- Mark Aguirre
- Craig Hodges
- Randy Brown
- Hersey Hawkins
- Evan Turner
- Sherron Collins
- John Scheyer
- Iman Shumpert
- Jacob Pullen
- E'Twaun Moore (Lake County, Indiana)
- Jeremy Richmond (McDonalds All-American)
...and the list goes on and on!!!
i actually mixed indiana with chi..ment to say i put indiana ahead of chi....hate how peopel keep low balling my area..ill go ahead and list our players as well
i could also go wayyyyyy on
matter of fact i will put us against any other city/state as having the best ballers int he past 10 years. i think we are the clear cut number one
Y'all don't want it with Indiana lol! We are known for two things... Basketball is one of them. Corn is the other lol.
im willing to engage in this battle:)
I can go back further... Throwing Larry Legend and the Big O on that list!
When you think about Indiana... The first thing you think is hoops. We live, eat, breathe, sh*t and sleep basketball in Indiana.
Even our women take this seriously... Shyra Ely, April McDivit, Katie Geralds, Brianna Bass, Amber Harris, Ashley Barlow, Katie Douglass... Lol. They play with and put it on the guys over here!
My nephew was born with a ball in his hands lol. We live it here. And we watch out for the little ones growing up in the system... A lil Gordon is coming up and he's taller, bigger and better than EJ was at the same age! Lil Teague is about to make a name for himself.
i admit ya'll produce ballers but one reason you think hoops is because there isnt a whole lot of other things that ya'll are known for. States are know for whatever they are best at. a place like ny is know for many things so they wont get the title as basketball being the first thing you think about for many people. i also wonder(by population) who produces more......ill also go back and throw in
DC/Maryland is slept on, but as far as pure basketball... Nobody tops Indiana. We're the Real McCoy.
Kara Lawson West Springfield
Rebecca Brunson Oxon Hill
Candace Howard Blandensburg/Dunbar I think
Candace Sutton Largo
Sky LaRue Carroll
Monic Curry Bullis
Brittany Mitch St. John's
Jasmine Thomas Oakton
Wanisha Smith Riverdale Baptist
Marisa Coleman St. John's
Alex McGuire Arundel
Vanessa Nemo DuVal
Chineze Nwagbo DuVal
Hope Foster Dunbar
Selina Nwude E. Roosevelt
i dont agree i say we have ya'll....we can go ahead and see who's list is better
You went back and did research... I went off the top of my head... That should tell you something lol. We live it.
The Big O went to Crispus Attucks right down the street... He's a legend bro lol. He averaged a triple double in the L. Larry Legend went to my college... He's a legend. Top five player of all-time. That alone tops everybody on your list. We grow up with hoops in our rooms... on the back of our bedroom doors... in our driveways... It's a way of life here.
as far as ever we have had more players 106 to 103...not a big margin but still more players while having a couple hundred thousand less people
Don't get me wrong I love Indiana ball and the players from the state but when ya think about the NYC and Chicago area you got such a bigger group to pick from. I would love to see a border rivaly between the IN and IL high school players but still wouldn't like our chances. But a few you left out was Big Dog Glen Robinson (Gary), Bonzi Wells (Muncie), Shawn Kemp (Elkhart), Scott Skiles (LaPorte) and Rick Fox went to high school in Indiana but not originally from there. But current High School studs Deshaun Thomas (Fort Wayne) Terone Johnson (Indy), Marquis Teague (Indy and lil bro of Jeff), Michael Chandler (Indy) and Branden Dawson (Gary) And that's just the males we got female ballers too.
just because you have 2 at the top doesnt make it better. majority out weights minority.. if thats the case p.a or ohio would have just about everyone beat because all they would have to say is lebrong james, kobe, wilt....its not just a couple players just like you made clear by naming a bunch of players
list of which place has produced the most nba ballers
as far as numbers go cali has it on lock
You're just going by NBA ballers... I'm going by basketball in general... High School, College and the NBA... We have had a lot of great players who didn't make the league. Jason Gardner and Chris Thomas are two of them. As far as a pure baskeball standpoint... We can't be topped.
And Darkman97... You're tripping man... I forgot all about the Big Dog and Shawn Kemp! Thanks... You're crazy if you don't think we could compete with those other states. Chicago and New York are supposedly known for their "toughness", but I'm not buying it. We used to destroy those teams during AAU and leave em talking.
Go back to see the population of each of the states you just gave the NBA players produced and let's see the per capitol of NBA players to citizens
if you go by basketball in general then theres nothing really to talk about because it really comes down to opinion. many states can say they have the best ballers to make it to the nba because it becomes alot more about opinion. anyone can say they had alot of great players who didnt make it to the leauge. i know for a fact that two who didnt make it( curt smith) would eat gardner or thomas. ask some street ballers from indana who have seen or played against curt smith
as far as the past 10 years which was the first topic we have it on lock
Don't get me wrong, I'm happy a fellow Hoosier is proud and have the faith in the state's chances. I think you're just blinded by your commitment to the state. If a game was to be made I would most def cheer for the state. Oh and you're welcome on the added players.
we have less citizens then indiana so we win on that front as well. we actually have less then ill,cali,ny as well...by at least 2million
Where are you from? You can't be from Indiana... You must be over their in the region somewhere or close to the borderline of IL lol.
Just looked it up and we're about even if you're putting Maryland with DC against Indiana. DC adds almost 700,000 people to you.
i said it was close but we have less people...i looked at the one from 2008.. and i added d.c is the 2009 one much different..??/
Yeah I am, From Gary so already damn near into chicago anyway plus I left the state 10 years ago. Family still in Gary and Indianapolis so I'm still connected to the area.
Mike Conley or George Hill
Greg Oden (Let's just assume he's playing the way he was before he got injured lol)
we take that game easily...i forgot about carmelo
Ah Ha! I knew it! I'm not surprised... You're basically an Illinois resident, so you have no respect for our Indiana hooper ways!
