Oladipo's Missed Dunk Last Night

Just in case you missed it, dude is definitely going to the league this year, no need for an extra year, still needs to work on his offensive game, but defensively I think he is up there with the best of them, so proud that he is from a Nigerian background, hopefully he can join up with the national team very soon. He's looking like a Tony Allen type player right now, but his ceiling could be Andre Iguodala or James Posey , what do you all think ?

Yeah it was great.. I think

Yeah it was great.. I think hes more D Wade/Tony Allen.. Doug Gottlieb was bashing Oladipo last night on twitter, idk why. Saying hes not an NBA rotation player and hes a d leaguer. Hes a Hater i guess haha. But this kid has a great work ethic and hes gonna be good once his offense comes along

Didn't he say Kyle Anderson

Didn't he say Kyle Anderson is the better prospect than Shabazz? Dude talks out of his ass I don't listen to him

Gottlieb said, "Just finished

Gottlieb said, "Just finished watching IU vs UM again. I may have under estimated Oladipo, guy is a freak. Smaller Desmond Mason type..just competes."

That's high praise.

We were in a bar here in New

We were in a bar here in New Orleans last night watching the game,when he did that dunk...Everyone in the joint jumped up and cheered,even people who were rooting for Michigan,were high fiving their friends afterwards.. It was incredible...

Oladipo deserves to be a 1st or 2nd team All American,he has played his way to being a mid 1st rounder to early 2nd round.........But i wouldnt take him in the lottery.......Alot Indiana players have fooled alot of people into taking them much sooner then they should've gone........

You're mock draft is

Your mock draft is interesting. You have Jamaal Franklin at 16. What makes Franklin a better prospect than Oladipo?

I think Franklin has more

I think Franklin has more upside........He might be 1 of those players whose stock raises after the workouts...

I don't see how he could have

I don't see how he could have more upside. Can't be because he's the better athlete. Oladipo's younger, stronger, more physically developed, has a much higher bball IQ, is more skilled and plays a better, more impactful brand of basketball.
If Franklin is a mid first rounder then Oladipo's lotto.

His stock will not be higher

His stock will not be higher than victor, he still has no jumpshot and his offensive game is much rawer than oladipos

A better pass by Ferrell

would have resulted in a dunk. Maybe a less spectacular dunk, but still...
Oladipo should get looks from teams drafting outside the lottery. Mid to late first, maybe as low as early second.
I got blasted for calling him a poor man's DWade, but i like the Iggy comparison better. He's not as good a passer yet. If he can continue his improvement at the same pace as he has since his Freshman year, the sky is limit for him.
