Thanks for sharing. I love the play of CB, but think DO will have a breakout year. Smartly, he understands he is carrying the tradition of poor shooting PGs at X following Q, Semaj, etc., so usually limits his shots to 6 feet and in. I wish Redford would join the staff and be tethered to Odom until he develops a consistent jumper.

I thot I read somewhere or maybe heard on the podcast that Brad was working with him as they totally reworked his shot.

Agree. Love Odom's athleticism, confidence and killer instinct. Reminds me a little of Jamal Walker who was a mediocre outside shooter unless the game was on the line. I still remember his corner three ball to beat U.C. at the Gardens. Jamal Walker was Money at clutch time and so, I think, will be Odom.

I expect Odom and Jones to both have strong seasons. It would be great if Odom can develop a shot but he can be a huge asset without it. Both are smart players that will find ways to win if the surrounding cast learns to play within their skillset.

Agree on both, but Odom has to develop some type of shot otherwise teams will continue to dare him to shoot, which didn't end up too well. I do hope that the used car salesman lets us run since our half offense has been miserable since he has been head coach. Wasn't he an offensive guru

Yea,

But so were Bruce Coslett and Homer Rice until they became head coaches for the Bengals.
