He is working on it.   It would be nice if this was unedited and he was just making it rain.

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...

Working out there, I'm sure he'll have Markus Howard type form in no time.

No kidding.  He's shooting from his chin.  No wonder why Oso never shoots 3s in games.

If he puts in the work, refines his form and release, and can hit 35% ish percent from 3, he will play in the league.    Frame, size, ball handling, passing, mind.... just hit an average percentage from 3.

He doesn't need a high, quick release.  If he can hit the shot when a defender is in the middle of the paint while he's at the top of the key, it's a game changer.  It's not like Sanogo was curling off screens and knocking down 3s with a trailing defender going over the top of the screen.  He made defenses pay when they just ignored him at the top of the key.  It completely changed how the national championship might have gone.

Last year he had that weird, hybrid push shot from the free throw line.  If he could just develop a functional mid range game it would be a bonus.  He’s really good already.

Yeah, it would be nice if the form was better.

But for a player like Oso not sure how it matters much. Whatever allows him to make some wide open ones to make the D honest.

He isnt going to be taking 3s with guys in his face and through movement. It will be wide open 3s when Ds sag on him.

Not this year. But if he has pro aspirations he will.

It would definitely help.  But he'll never be a 3 point sniper.  The 3s he'll be taking for the rest of his career will be the wide open 3s he'll get.  PJ Tucker kind of has a similar form, although PJ's comes up more on the side.

I will say it again…..no one in this offense is working on their mid range jumper.
Who shoots mid range jumpers on this team?
No one. You look for a cutter or an open 3.
Oso shot that push shot from 3’ in front of the FT line. And when he did, he was leaning as much as he could towards the basket to make it as high of a % shot as he could.

Oso, watch a highlight reel of Kevin Garnett. KG’s form from 12-18’. Do it Do it.

He is really good but offensively he was brought to another level because of Kolek's vision and passing. Oso needs to keep working on a lot despite having a great repertoire of skills already.

I agree for the most part.  But a few games this year,  incl Mich State,  often left us open from mid range only for us to drive into a bunch of traffic at the rim.  If we are not going to take mid range shots then the team needs to determine what to do in these situations.

This is true, but can't say I entirely agree with it.  In end of game or end of shot clock situations, you need guys that can take what the D is giving them (probably a mid range shot) and have that shot in their arsenal to go get a bucket.  It's how MSU put us away in the final minutes of our tournament game, tough shot making by their guards. At the end of the day, every team needs a guy who is comfortable taking those shots, even if it isn't a regular feature of the offense.

Because scoopers WANT us to shoot the mid range jumper, doesn’t mean we will.
It is not a part of MU’s offense whether people  like it or not.
Nevada ran a top 5 offense last year.
Until that is no longer the case, I won’t question him.

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.

All he needs is to shoot it well enough to make a wide open 3 off a pick n pop action, which his form is perfectly fine for.  And eventually if he shows he's a threat that will just confuse defenses more on those actions and give Kolek and Kam more room to operate off the screen.

If Oso can hit a 3 next season, he could take them underhand because he will be that wide open. No one will his challenge him, especially if has not wasted his dribble. There will not be a team willing to challenge that shot with is ballhandling and play making skills.

Exactly...if you don't give him a step 90% of those defending him will be in trouble...being able to go 5-out with Oso in the game would be a big deal.

He needs to bang on the inside and shoot a few 10’ jump shots, maybe mix in a skyhook, imo. 

I’d like to see him eat more bacon and steak and get bigger.  Feed Oso and then feed the post!

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...
