Default Darius Johnson Odom Highlights

We got him too in case you all didn't know. Could be one of the steals of the draft.

This guy is a flat out baller. He has an NBA ready game right now.

I agree in a sense that he has the body to keep up with the NBA physical level. I really enjoyed watching that clip.

Positives:

Super athletic
Great build for NBA
Good scorer from many areas

Negatives:

Not enough footage yet, I need to see his defense. I like players that play on both ends. So far so good though.

Not enough footage but he seems a bit slow with a slow release on his shot too. His moves seem thought out as if he's working on techniques that he hasn't fully mastered yet. He is athletic, I wouldn't call him super athletic, he can dunk but he doesn't get up very high. Yes, solid NBA build is a great thing. Clips show you what went in, not how many he missed....I can't call him a good scorer just off that.......and how many guys light it up in summer league and are crap as pros.

I disagree. This guy is going to be a perfect fit for the Lakers because he is a defensive stud, and is super athletic. He's clutch too if anyone followed his career at Marquette. This is a real steal for the Lakers. He could come in right now and be the backup for Sessions.

Here is a scouting report on Darius Johnson Odom, It agrees with me that he has a slow shooting release. Evaluating things like this is what I've been paid to do for a very long time. It also mentions his slow move to the basket....the spin move he has is not developed yet and he is mechanical right now.
The scouting report is a good one, he has potential but also much to overcome. Fans don't realize how important a quick release is for NBA players, even more so if you are not very tall. Allowing a defender an extra step gets your shot blocked.....and Odom's release is so slow it immediately jumped out at me.
