I could watch Russ Smith Play D all Day
Yeah, watching him act a fool on offense is fun, too, but MAN is he fun to watch on D. He just frustrates anyone with the ball. Fun, fun, fun. Thoughts?
I guess a better question than simply, "thoughts?", would be this:
Who do you find to be the best perimeter defender in college? The two best I have seen are Oladipo and Russ Smith. I personally just love watching Russ get up in the main ball handler, but Oladipo is a physical specimen on the perimeter.
Defense has always been my favorite part of basketball! My thoughts are you get plus 1 on both your posts because of your appreciation of the best part of basketball
what are your thoughts on perimeter D? Oladipo, Smith or someone else?
I'll take Russ smith he locks down anyone whether you are his size or bigger. Oladipo is good too though also Faquan Edwin from Seton Hall shuts guys down as well.
oladipo is the ultimate pest. a lot of NBA teams will want his active hands on their roster
Oladipo's physical strength will translate well to the L, and combined w his quick feet and hands will make him a good defender against the elite guards and combo forwards. Still, watching a total jerk (meant in the best way) absolutely get into a lead guards head like Smith does is just hysterical!
