Articles about Romero Osby

Romero Osby - After being cut by the Magic last training camp, Osby is back for a second go, despite the power forward spot he plays being even fuller than it was last time with the addition of Gordon and the breakout of the sneakily good Kyle O'Quinn. In the year hence, he has been in the D-League with the Maine Red Claws, where his task was to rein in his mistake making. He failed. Although he poured in 16.2 points and 6.4 rebounds in only 27 minutes a game, there were also 3.3 fouls and 2.8 turnovers per game in that time. A quality offensive talent, Osby still does not know how to use what he has. He can use summer league as an opportunity to showcase what he does have, at least, as well as prove his return to health after season ending shoulder surgery in January.

Romero Osby - Drafted by the Magic, Osby was squeezed out of the roster shuffle, and now finds himself in the D-League, where he averages 15.6 points and 8.4 rebounds in only 29 minutes per game for the Maine Red Claws. However, he also averages 4 turnovers a game and is shooting 38% from the field. He has tools, but is caught between positions and needs to find an identity.

Romero Osby

Osby makes things happen, good and bad. Normally, this is an underrated positive attribute in a player - genuine productivity is often overlooked by the risk-averse nature of basketball coaches and executives, and mistakes seem to linger in the memory moreso than positive play ever could. In Osby's case, however, the mistakes are so plentiful, and other holes significant enough, that the reconciliation is difficult. Offensively, Osby provides a bit of everything - strong, and decently if not overly athletic, Osby is a runaway train in transition, can drive the ball, finish around the basket with some post-up play to boot, and is ever developing a jumpshot with three point range. However, this bullishness and relentless aggressiveness is accompanied by extremely high turnover numbers - bad decision making, a limited passing game, and strength rather than nuanced body control, all combine to make Osby unreliable, no matter how valuable his scoring can be. Furthermore, Osby rather underwhelms on the glass, has demonstrated little out of pick and roll situations (although being in a situation with better guards to run it may change this), and only sporadically defends both the interior and perimeter. Osby's offensive talents are intriguing, but the total package is frustrating.
