I don't think he was a OAD - he played three years of college basketball


So by the generally accepted definition of OAD, TM3 was not one. In terms of whether the UVA fanbase would adopt a player who only played a single year at UVA, that is really less of a OAD issue and more of a "getting to know them" issue. I also think intent matters--I don't want to field a team of guys who are not invested in the school and solely want to use the one year so they can declare for the NBA.

By all accounts, TM3 was not that kind of player. He even expected to sit out a year which he welcomed to build strength and learn the defense. Did he look at UVA as an opportunity to raise his profile in the hopes of getting a look by the NBA? Sure. Nothing wrong with that. It just so happended that the opportunity came much faster than he or anyone else expected. So good for him and I'll enjoy watching him in the NBA.
