|Mike Moser celebrates a successful extra point attempt
2013/14 stats: 28.3 mpg, 13.2 ppg, 7.7 rpg, 1.6 apg, 0.7 bpg, 1.2 spg, 2.6 fpg, 1.8 TOpg, 45.9% FG, 37.8% 3PT, 76.6% FT
Moser is a fairly quirky player who apparently has decided that he wants to be a three point shooter. Historically, he has not been good at this, but an uptick as a senior to 37.8% at least justifies it a bit. now. Not strong or wide, the 6'8 Moser is not built to play the traditional power forward spot at a professional level that he has done so much at the collegiate level, but he nonetheless is a good rebounder with a motor and some athleticism.
What Moser could be is a face-up four in a small forward's body. He likes to get out in transition and is a good athletic finisher, who finishes looks on offense rather than creates them. He catches and shoots despite his flat footed release, he finishes around the basket, and he gets a few off of putbacks. Moser's shot selection is not the best, especially with the jumpshot he continues to adore, but he can put the ball on the floor against flat footed opponents (especially after up-faking a closing-out defender), utilises a spin move, can pass off the drive, and somewhat makes up for poor defensive effort with his nose for the ball.
All of which is going to make him a solid Israeli league player.
