The Rise of Victor Oladipo


One of the biggest NBA stories of this past summer was when, after several months of haranguing, the Indiana Pacers finally decided to trade Paul George with one year left on his deal. Shipping him to Oklahoma City for a package of Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis, many felt the Pacers held their hand too long and got only a quarter on the dollar for the multi-time All-Star George. Few, however, could have predicted just how much Oladipo would flourish in Indiana. The fifth-year pro is averaging a career-best 24.2 points per game, up 8.3 from last year’s average. Look below for some really good stuff on Oladipo. Oladipo’s appearance on The Woj Pod is one of my favorite podcast episodes recently (it will be featured in Wednesday’s podcast post). Look beneath the podcast link for a transcript of the podcast (via the IndyStar)
