Oso has the potential to be our best long-range shooting big man since Mike Davis. That might get us into the 2nd weekend of the NCAAs...

100% of those are getting blocked.

Not if Omax is guarding him. Bad block percentage.

Did you see any of Sanogo's 3s this past year? it will be like that.

Or like Theo John his senior season.

Doubt he'll be looking to take a contested 3 with a guy in his face. If he can start knocking down the occasional open look and drawing his defender out to the arc, at the very least it has the potential to open up the floor.
Sanogo last year took threes when he was left wide open. This would be the only way Oso is going to shoot a three. They will leave him wide open until he shows he actually is a threat.

There is zero chance anyone will contest his three point shooting regardless of how many he makes. He is too fast, good of a ball handler for anyone to challenge him. Again, he can take a set shot or shot underhanded and not get it blocked. Only way he would be contested would be by mistake.

I agree with those who say his release point is fine for any 3-pointers he actually would take.

He's not gonna be James Harden, taking step-back 3s with a defender in his face; he's gonna be wide open.

Would love to see him be a threat with this exact shooting form, if that's what he's comfortable with and that's what he can make.

Good to see him working on it, but man does he need to get his release point higher. Sean could get a hand on that shot...

If Oso can become a minor threat from three my expectations go up quite a bit, even without an Omax replacement. That would be a big weapon to add and I am talking about him stretching the defense more than him becoming a sniper.

Anyone concerned about his form are missing the big picture. Truthfully, I think this could be game changer for the team next season. I thought they would need a new wrinkle on offense to match last season and this could be it.

It doesn't take a genius to see that the form needs work and the release is low.

I agree the threat of a three from Oso could be transformative for the offense. I also hope that he is working on the fifteen to 18 foot shot. I fully understand that the goal is to shoot at the rim or from 3, however, there are so many occasions where teams could sag off Oso when he was at the free throw line or just a bit deeper. He is a passing threat from there, but when teams sagged the cutting and passing lanes are nearly eliminated. I'm not sure the form he is apparently working on would be effective from 15-18 feet, but time will tell. No reason not to trust the development program at this point.

Hards

Of course his shooting form is not textbook, but neither is his skill set. The only way he will ever take a three is if he is wide open and he will be wide open often. He can shoot one handed from the side of his head and I would not care. If he can make outside shots it changes things in a big way for next season, imo.

I think he will get the chance to show even more versatility this season.   With OMax gone, I think that Oso will guard more wings and shoot more 3's.  Showcasing for next year's draft.

We will be debating where Oso is getting drafted a year from now.

Who's guarding the opposing bigs then?

I am not saying this is the base.   Plus, last season Joplin defended the post better than the wing.    I think the coaches will find more ways to use and showcase his versatility.

I certainly think he's capable of it.  I just don't see the personnel around him to allow for it.
