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

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.

I'll take Russ smith he locks

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.

I agree

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!
