NBA Comparison: John Wall

Strengths: Emmanuel is a true point guard with dynamic speed and athleticism and great size… Very unselfish player who loves to get his teammates involved … Outstanding ball handler who is equally comfortable attacking right and left … Excels in the open court where his speed hits another gear… Sees the entire floor…Very quick first step and a lethal crossover … Makes great decisions off the pick and roll … Finishes strong at the rim … Has the size and strength to post up smaller guards … Good rebounder for a guard ...

Weaknesses: Very streaky shooter … Needs to develop a consistent midrange shot …Takes too long to get shot off … Must become a better free throw shooter … Sometimes too flashy and tries hard to make the big play which leads to turnovers … Occasionally over dribbles … Should become more of a vocal leader ... Needs to stay in a stance on defense and close out low with hands high ...

Overall: Emmanuel Mudiay is arguably the top point guard in the class of 2014 and will almost certainly be a one and done player. Under the tutelage of Larry Brown at SMU his decision making will undoubtedly improve and he will learn how to run a team in the half court. With his size and quickness Mudiay has the potential to be a top 10 pick and with an improved jump shot could become a future NBA All Star ...

Notes: Born in the Republic of Congo

Strengths: A true point guard, knows how to run a team, great size and will probably grow more, father is 6'10" and has an older brother who is 6'7" ... Silky smooth, shoots the ball well out to college three, great passer and playmaker, high IQ, very athletic, can get in the lane at will, mature body that will fill out ... Long arms, quick feet, shows a desire to defend, wreaks havoc in the passing lanes, excels most in the open floor where he can use his creativity for himself or teammates ... Often has the advantage in the open floor when numbers are not in his favor, has the ability to make people better, makes the right play, has great flair in is game, great kid, comes from a grounded family, very competitive, great upside because of versatility, very good handle, natural talent and feel are off the charts

Doesn't shoot as well off the dribble as he does spotting up, handle is very good but needs to tighten up some, effort inconsistent, plays down to level of competition, at times tried to do too much, defers to upperclassmen sometimes, has a mean streak but has to be challenged for it to come out, coasts at times and takes plays off, jumpshot needs to be more consistent, needs to be more assertive and more vocal

Mudiay is a special talent that simply doesn't come along very often possibly the best 2014 prospect. He's a full year younger than Canadian phenom Andrew Wiggins. Has been compared to Tyreke Evans, but is more talented. Great upside. Playmaker who can score and make others better. The sky is the limit if he is willing to work. Has the natural talent and feel for the game that can make him the # 1 player in the country by the time he's a senior. With continued development looking at a top 5 pick and franchise player at the highest level.
