Emmanuel Mudiay (DEN) – “Dr. Congo” | “Mad-Eye Mudiay”under armour

(Isaiah J. Downing/USA TODAY Sports)


DEN Point Guard: 6’5, 200 lbs; 3rd year, Congo 

NBA Role: athletic floor general UnderDOG

Emmanuel Mudiay: an intriguing, 6’5 PG who is still finding his groove; offensive profile: athletic finisher w/ nice court awareness – Mudiay has quick ups, a dashing first step & is learning to probe better – if DEN plays fast, Mudiay’s natural talent will takeover; confident in everything he does – thinks he can stop you whenever, get a bucket whenever, make a play whenever – exactly what you want to see; a little too shot happy – hard DFS play because of the turnovers but has potential to fill it up on any given night; gets around screens very well – needs teams to fear him more – get that midrange shot in order or perfect those ‘fake step-back’ kickouts* instead of hitting the roll man every time; DEN needs another star – is Mudiay that guy?; flair for coming up big in the clutch – on offense & defense, a rarity amongst young players; Denver’s floor general of the future?

*Derrick Rose (NYK) does this a lot
