Oladipo compared to Harold Miner??
Alot of people have been comparing Oldaipo to Dwyane Wade or Tony Allen. But has anybody on this site compared him to Harold Miner? I don't think he will be the let down Miner was. But Miner was called "Baby Jordan." Oladipo was getting comparisons to Jordan and Wade through the college basketball season. To me I think he will be a better Harold Miner. Now I am a little to young to remember Harold Miner playing days. I just was talking to my dad about basketball and the Draft and he said Oladipo reminds him of Harold Miner. I pulled up youtube clips and I must say I see the similarities. For any of you guys that remember Harold Miner, do you guys think Oladipo's game is similar to his?
Thanks for the buzz kill.
This is 'dipo Central here. Me included.
I don't remember minors shooting percentages from distance but I remember hisjumper was beyond broken, I mean you could leave him open all day. He also was extremely strong and aggressive attacking the rim. I dont think the games are too similar. Oladipo should be significantly better at ball handling, defense and shooting.
For a higher ceiling comparison for Victor Oladipo what about David Thompson? A great athlete, combustible, about 6'5 but pretty long. Good jumper, and good all-around skills but not known as a deadly deep threat.
Here is a youtube David Thompson countdown video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6OsKy1c5A0
I just hope that Oladipo is better than Harold Miner.
Harold Miner was a journeyman. Couldn't cut it at the next level.
Miner wasn't nearly as athletic as Oladipo is.
are you sure about that? it may be the other way around.
I'm sold Oladipo is the real deal I didn't know he had a handle like he does. I saw a video were he shook MKG out of his shoes. Also on other video he's just blowing buy guys with a quick first step. He's the real deal and can at least be a Dion waters. I see the Dwade in his game though.
I remember Baby Jordan, he was a hell of player and scorer for the Trojans at USC.
Oladipo is more rounded than Miner, better defender, passer and handle.
Although he was a bust at the pro level, he will always be remembered for his dunk comp win.
