One half-season does not a career make. I was simply hoping for something more to be impressed by when I was always somewhat on the fence.
Well it was easy to be excited by him. Coming on as a rookie with 54 points in 60ish games. Great offensive instincts, great shot, toughness on top of it, yet a defensive game to work on but an overall good looking prospect that some had in their 1st round, though I didn't. But early to mid 2nd round for me. Like....I would have easily picked Thrower instead of Moroz....Personnally, I loved the pick....but would have picked Boo Nieves instead.
