Emoni can score the basketball with ease, he can shoot it over the top of a smaller defender or take bigger defenders off the dribble. He can also finish in the lane with contact and get out and fill the lanes in transition. He has great length & size and is very fluid with the ball in his hands. He needs to put on some much-needed muscle, take the pounding as he continues to get older.

Nike EYBL - April 27, 2019 - Atlanta, GA

The first thing you notice is how much taller he is as opposed to his teammates and opponents. Once the ball is tossed up you notice how fluid he is with the ball in his hands. He has a nice change of direction off the bounce as well as a great ability to shoot over the top of everyone. What I liked most was his overall aggression, as he sought out contact driving the lane and creating free-throw opportunities for himself. He also seemed to play with calmness as he didn't appear to be in a hurry, as you typically see with most kids his age. If he fills out and continues to get stronger, the sky is the limit for this kid, he could be a top 3 pick whenever he decides to enter the draft.
