RDO's Effectiveness: Shall He Stay with the Bolts or be Back on TNT?

RDO takes a three over Cliff Hodge

Yes, Meralco Bolts reached the finals when RDO came. But was he a factor for the Bolts to reach this far? Or was he just a dormant? An ampereless player?

Before Ranidel De Ocampo came to Meralco, we all know that he is a former Katropa of TNT and is a key player of that team. Both of these teams are undeniably one of the strongest teams in the present league but with this switch, questions started to arise, where is RDO more effective? Where does his playing style belong?

Before we could answer that question, we must first familiarize ourselves with the RDO play.


What kind of player is he?

A shooting power forward. Ranidel has the size and the accuracy. He can play under the rim, post up against towering players, finish fast breaks and shoot outside efficiently.

As I have observed, of these characteristics, we can consider his outside shooting the most threatening. Why? Well, a tall player which can deliver from beyond the arc is really dangerous. It is hard to defend him individually and it gradually loosens the opponent's interior guard.


With this playing style, the conclusion would be ...

He's much more effective with the Talk N' Text Katropa apparently and analytically.

Apparently, because we have seen him exploding wearing the TNT Jersey. He scores high, drilling crucial baskets and perhaps making the most for the team.

Analytically, his shooting would spice up TNT 's outside shooters. Given that the squad had great small men like the blur, but stopping small guys in the three-point area would be easier if their all small, why not put a larger gunner outside which is also capable of matching their pace during fast breaks. RDO could keep up with Castro's speed and would be a great finisher given his height and agility, he'll be hard to stop.

We've already seen it. We're just waiting to see it again.
