Cohen 8-Ball: This or That
Would you rather Victor Oladipo primarily be a shooting guard or transform into a point guard? Josh Cohen’s Analysis: Forget all the comparisons to current NBA stars and ignore the composition of the Magic’s present roster, Oladipo has a “do-what-is-best-for-team” disposition. He ascended in practically every category during his journey in college. If Oladipo, nonetheless, can develop a reliable jumper and not be overwhelmed guarding bigger, stronger twos, then playing his natural position is more fitting. However, if his ball handling and decision making improves, it’s very possible to envision Oladipo as a Russell Westbrook-type point guard.
