It’s not that Oubre is a bad player; he’s averaging 14 ppg this year in Charlotte and posted 15ppg with the Warriors last year. But those ‘WTF’ moments that you just know he’s going to have can really dilute his contributions to any game, no matter how many points he’s scored. That’s where Jordan’s frustration likely comes from, because Oubre is so talented. Still, he’s constantly skipping over some of the smaller details needed to be great in any professional sport. Simply knowing and recognizing the situation, then knowing what to do or not to do in those situations. (Source: deadspin.com)

Attention to detail is what keeps many players from excelling to higher levels as professionals. Although we compare the late Kobe Bryant to Jordan, he was never as athletic as Jordan, but I think we’d all rank Bryant’s basketball IQ up there with some of the all-time greats, including His Airness. The attention to every little detail that’s what separates good from great and the great from the all-time greats. (Source: deadspin.com)

STATE

With Oubre clearly not a fit this year, the Warriors brought back 2015 NBA Finals Andre Iguodala and signed Nemanja Bjelica and Otto Porter Jr. this summer. All three acquisitions have fit in perfectly and have helped Golden State race out to an NBA-best 11-1 record. (Source: www.nbcsports.com)

In his first full year with Phoenix, Oubre took plenty of noticeable steps forward. Though he was forced to miss time with a torn meniscus and played just 56 games, he put up career-high numbers across the board when on the court. The fifth-year man averaged 18.7 points, 6.4 boards, 1.5 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.9 triples -- all career-best numbers. Aside from his performance from the charity stripe, his shooting splits of 45.2/35.2/78.0 were the best marks of his career as well. Oubre clearly played behind the high-usage Devin Booker in shot attempts and scoring, though he was nearly dead-even with DeAndre Ayton as the team's second option on offense. For this upcoming season, Oubre should again have a significant role -- this time on the Warriors. Following the news that Klay Thompson suffered a season-ending Achilles tear and will miss a second straight campaign, Golden State went out and traded a protected first-round pick for Oubre. He figures to start on the wing next to Andrew Wiggins and should see plenty of action, as the Warriors bench remains desperately thin. We shouldn't be surprised if Oubre is able to re-create the success he had last season. (Source: www.rotowire.com)

SEASON

Impact Oubre was impressive from downtown in this one, draining a season-high five triples in the overtime loss. He's tallied double-digit scoring performances in three of his first four games of the 2021 season, and he's also secured nine rebounds in two straight contests. Oubre could continue to see opportunities with the starting five if Terry Rozier (ankle) misses additional time. (Source: www.foxsports.com)
