Of course, no one mentions that Moon's offense has improved considerably since last year. I like him, he's our glue guy.
I disagree.

Moon seemingly bites on every pump fake, is usually slow to react and close out on shooters and relies on his athleticisim to defend instead of positioning and moving his feet.

His reliance on the jumper has increased, he has an aversion to contact and he's become allergic to rebounding.
