Why you guys like Carrington so much escapes me.Based on this video, my intuition tells me that Ben plans on having Ihnen/JOJ play at the 3. I'm guessing the depth chart right now (assuming everyone is healthy) is likely as follows:
PG - Hawkins/Mitchell
SG - Carrington/Christie
SF - JOJ/Ihnen/Ramberg
PF - Garcia/Betts/Keinys
C - Payne/Fox/Wilson
I have very high expectations for JOJ this year. He always played with high intensity and was underrated with his offensive play around the hoop. He seems to have good instincts and a knack for banging in the post.with the videos they're putting out, it's nice to get a sense of the personalities. JOJ seems like a fun guy - and as noted in the video, the dude has got some hops. also like seeing him hit some 3's. if he can give them minutes at SF, that could really help depending on the matchups.

He's a freak athlete, and his jump shot has always looked smooth. He was starting to hit some threes at the end of the year, and his stroke looks very nice in these short clips.
I think he is a dark horse to be one of the best all-around players on the team, especially with his versatility defensively. I hope he continues to be aggressive in the lane offensively and can make open jump shots when they present themselves.
Carrington also shot 50% threes the last 5 games. We are real this year.
Ok normally I don’t care what others think… but as absurd as it sounds I’d like to follow up my off the cuff hopes and dreams with some stats. I will be the first to admit it has a LOT to do with them having OLA in their names. Then again… freak athletes with above avg wingspan (had to include that ;-) for you regulars on here) for their heights.
Oladipo - 10/11 Freshman season 7.4 PPG, 3.7 REB, 0.9 AST, 0.612 FT% (increased to 75% as a Sophomore), 0.308 3PT%
JOJ - 22/23 Freshman season 7.4 PPG, 2.7 REB, 0.4 AST, 0.571 FT%, 0.381 3PT%
Of course development does matter and it’s unlikely JOJ ever plays meaningful minutes in the NBA. Nevertheless it seems to me to be a reasonably fun comp on a Gopher message board.
