His jumper is my only real knock. He isn't a great athlete but good enough for his size.
I liken him to Rondo just in a sense he does everything on the floor. Terrific defender rebounder and is all over the place I love watching him play. He has done all this with a bad jump shot it needs work but if he ever gets a jumper he will be flithy at the next level. He is gonna be a matchup nightmare in the post just so smart and love how he plays.
Markell Brown is another kid from OK st I would consider drafting. late 1st early 2nd. Long athletic can shoot defend. I wouldnt reach on him by any means but if he would be a solid pick in the 2nd. Markell vs Ben will be a fun matchup both are fun guys to watch.
EDIT: Elijah Johnson really sucks so I expect Marcus to really play well. I think he was actually bench last game and they are going with a freshman now. Not sure if it was permanent but if it is can't blame Self dude has been awful.

Oladipo would be my pick but we would not go wrong with either if they actually fall to us.

No, he didn't. According to this link (http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/draft...p-30-prospects) he was 30th on Ford's Big Board as of February 14th. After the game last night it appears he has moved up to 17th.
While that obviously wasn't a very good game for him, I will say I was pretty impressed with Smart. He made one steal of an entry pass to Withey, that you could tell he read the play about 5 seconds before the passer even thought about passing it. He seems like a very, very "smart" player.
McLemore was awful. Passive. Unwilling to attack. He looked like a freshman. Very disappointing game from him. He didn't look like a #1 overall pick at all.
Another thing I thought was interesting was that OSU has Smart on the low block to rebound during defensive free throws. I've never seen that from a PG before.
Obviously there is a 0% chance this happens, but can you imagine the defensive terror a Paul George/Victor Oladipo wing tandem would create? Holy lord.
