  1. Yikes…Oladipo is 16/61 (26%) on 3-pointers since January 13. 6/32 (under 19%) over last seven games…Double yikes. Talk about a funk…?

    1. Man, he must have been lighting it up before that because he’s shooting 51% from the field for the season.

  2. Yogi now appears to be the real “steal” in the NBA…..He may end up being the Tom Brady of the NBA.

  3. Chet- My post was referencing 3-point fg % over the last month. Not sure where you’re looking, but here’s the month-to-month 3-point %s. Still rather deceiving as far as recognizing the slump because the latter part of January is atrocious.

    Oct: .250
    Nov: .442
    Dec: .250
    Jan: .358
    Feb: .143

    Season: .353

    His scoring avg. is still only 16 ppg. It’s still almost 2 ppg lower than his second year in the league at Orlando. He’s simply not living up to the billing most Thunder fans were anticipating.

  4. I just find it a bit ironic…Mega high draft pick so horribly inconsistent from the perimeter and still only averaging 16 ppg in year four of his NBA stint.

    Yogi barely squeaks into the league and he’s tearing it up(albeit he’s got a long way to go). Same could be said for Isaiah Thomas in Boston…..just skyrocketing under the right coach and system.

  5. Don’t know where in the heck you’re finding 51% for the season….Oladipo’s overall fg % is .439(about where it was at Orlando).
