    Hey all, I've been working scouring over Oladipo footage and stats all week trying to get a blog post out before tonight's game - just squeezed it in! I hope this is the most comprehensive look at Oladipo you will find in one place - I break down his pick n roll play, his hustle on defense, shooting form and lots more. Please read and let me know your thoughts.

    Oh and please don't say "we're just going to trade him in a week". I worked too hard on this lol.

    Victor Oladipo’s parents are from Nigeria. Thus, Victor Oladipo is related to Hakeem Olajuwon.

    Very good read and great insight on Oladipo. Can't wait for him and Wall getting after it on the defensive end. I like the how you tied our defensive weakness (i.e. rebounding and transition defense) and displayed how Oladipo can help us improve. Very encouraging and hope the Rockets can get healthy soon so we can see some them pitbulls out there on the court.

    All we need to do right now is to get Oladipo up in his numbers so we can flip him for Tyler hero or Bam from Miami. If we can get him to average career highs and have our outstanding medical and training system go to work on him. We could get a haul for him. He already scored 32 in his debut. We definitely ain’t tryina spend more money. We just need to stock up on young talent and leave room for draft picks to get burn time. In the mean time, I’m just gonna watch and root for Harden and KD dethrone Lebron’s Lakers. These two seasons don’t count anyway. They’re definitely asterisk seasons.

    That's a lot of detail. I would be grateful if you could write up my PhD thesis please.

    Great work man. The stuff you wrote just confirmed my eye test on the guy.

    He isnt as talented as James Harden, on the plus side he doesnt try to do everything like James Harden either. As great as Harden is at that contested stepback there are def times he would fall in love with the dribble ISo move and that just kills the rhythm of the other guys. One thing I also like is he is a good perimeter defender, Harden is a good post defender but on perimeter he always gets blown by and he rarely moves to truly close out on 3 pt shooters. Wall and Dipo arent as efficient as Harden when it comes to getting buckets, but hopefully their combined D would make up for it.

    Im def in the wait and see mode right now. If Wall, Wood and Dipo have insane synergy together cant see why we cant have them long term. Theyre young enough to still compete post Lebron era.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone!

    What a debut. It took Oladipo one quarter to figure things out with Wood.
