: In any other program where the focus is on developing the skills of ALL the players on the team, he would have been taught all the basic skills needed for the next level. If you watch him now he is soft in the basic skills - no drop step (either direction) when receiving the ball in the post, limited off hand moves, often out of position defensively, etc. He has been successful thus far because of his size, his athletic ability and his instincts - just imagine what he'd be like with some actual coaching.
I am sure Etop will have Big O working super hard on his big man moves, right? After all, players like O wouldn't get high D1 offers without his help or the hype machine that is the Compton Magic, right? The fact is, O will likely not be a low post traditional center. Certainly importen for him to work on the various post moves and to develop great footwork and both hands for when he is in the post, but I see him as a high post guy that may be able to stretch things a bit if we can actually see him shoot from outside like he did against LBP.
