ESPN’s Monica McNutt would take Malcolm Brogdon over John Wall in hypothetical pickup squad

If you ask ESPN’s Monica McNutt who she would pick between Boston Celtics super sixth man Malcolm Brogdon and Los Angeles Clippers reserve floor general John Wall, the answer is easy. “Brogdon — and I love John Wall,” replied McNutt in a recent interview with Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson on his semi-eponymous “Scoop B Radio” podcast where Robinson did ask her that question.

“I am so excited to see him back playing ball and healthy but I’ve always loved Malcolm Brogdon,” McNutt offered. Malcolm Brogdon, Jalen Brunson, Mike Conley, Jrue Holiday (to a degree) — no flash, all ball.

“They can hit you at all three levels; maybe not an elite 3-point shooter but if you leave him open, they will do the damage.”

“Those are my favorite types of point guard,” explained McNutt. “I don’t need any flash. Even Chris Paul in the second part of his career; I don’t need a whole bunch of dynamic explosions.”

“I need you to get us into our offense, finish and hit me when I’m ready to shoot the ball,” she closed. “Simple.”
