Emmanuel Mudiay passing breakdown from Las Vegas Summer League

New, comments

A really cool video breakdown from Joel Rush aka @denbutsu on Twitter of Emmanuel Mudiay's passing. The film is from the Nuggets' games at the Las Vegas Summer League, where Mudiay put on a clinic in court vision. His drive and kick game is strong, and you have to check out some of the angles on which he zips passes perfectly to teammates.

How he moves in a line one way, and throws the ball on another line against his momentum is incredible. It's important to note that Ian Clark pointed out the Nuggets coaches positioned guys in certain areas, and that while some of Mudiay's passes look like they're made totally blind, he had the trust in his teammates to be in the spots the coaches envisioned.

While it was fun to watch Mudiay whip passes around Cox Pavilion, it will be even sweeter seeing those passes land in the hands of guys like Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, Kenneth Faried, and Jusuf Nurkic; to name a few. It will also be fun watching how Mudiay adjusts to NBA defenses, and to schemes that will, at some point, be designed to cut down his court vision.
