Default Re: NBA scouts: IU's Victor Oladipo is ready, Cody Zeller maybe not

I agree completely. He reminds me a bit of what Avery Bradley does for the Celtics. I could see him being a game changer defensively on either guard spot. And I know he's gonna run the floor, move without the ball on offense, finish at the rim.
He appears to be a better shooter than Bradley at this point, but probably not as good a playmaker. Bradley does come out of a PG background, and still seems like a pretty good ball mover, and has an instinct for penetrate and dish/kick that's above average.
If Oladipo's shooting this year wasn't an outlier this year, and he continues to get better at it, he can be even more than that. Maybe something along the lines of what Jason Richardson was at his peak.
