They call him Otto-matic. It's a cheap pun, but the moniker suits Otto Porter beyond simple wordplay, so pre-programmed is the sophomore forward to fulfill his duties. He is at once a player of modern vintage -- a 6-foot-8 wing with position-bending versatility, a 44.0 percent three-point shooter comfortable running a fast break -- and catnip for extollers of the old school, a label Porter's dependable, exceedingly no-frills excellence inspires with such frequency that it borders on trite. "He goes to the glass, makes the extra pass," says LSU assistant Robert Kirby, who recruited and then coached Porter while at Georgetown from 2010 to '12. "He moves. He sees the play developing. He thinks two passes ahead."
