45 minutes long but a good watch. Schmitz does these with pretty much every lottery pick. Usually in person but via zoom this year for obvious reasons.
He basically breaks down elements of Isaacs game, asking Isaac situational questions about the plays featured, and shows clips of similar plays from some of the (admittedly high end) comps for Okoro.
Pretty good stuff and you really get a sense for Isaacs approach to the game as well as his commitment to always be the hardest worker as he continues to improve on his game
Totally agree. I saw that game and thought the same thing. Kira is very fast but Okoro was able to stay with him. His strength and length really helps to be infront of those quick guards. I am lookimg forward when Okoro plays against Sexton in practice to up their games.His recovery and fighting through screens are some of his strength. He is pretty darn good. Have you seen the tape of him covering Kira Lewis? He's pretty much top speed and Okoro did a good job on him.
Personally even though JB says Okoro needs to earn it, I believe he will be in the Starting lineup earlier than we think. Depends on training camp with covid but if things go well, I expect from day 1.I want Okoro in the starting lineup asap.
Garland,Cedi,KPJ,Nance,Bell (assuming TT leaves)
We need to establish good defense in the starting lineup. Okoro's value will show more on a more balanced lineup as a starter.
Agreed, but JBB is saying that right stuff about making him earn the job. Garland was handed the job and he never really earned it.I'm with the majority of people I think Okoro should start from day one....He's going to have "bumps and bruises" along the way but I think it will help him long term....imo
I know one thing,I would love to see Sexton and Okoro play one on one...
