Victor Oladipo got compared to Michael Jordan before last summer’s draft, which is a bit too much too soon in my opinion. But I love Oladipo’s game and got a chance to catch his first game of the year. His defense is impressive and his offense is coming along quite nicely.
The Jordan Brand recently added Oladipo which is quite wise. This is a young man with plenty of potential in his future and it just may come sooner than we all think. Thanks to the piece below for alerting me to this and congratulations to Oladipo.

Little known fact is that Victor has a twin sister named Victoria, and he comes from a strong family unit. His work ethic is legendary and you just have to look at his improved shooting in college to see that it is working out well for him so far. He was shocked to be drafted so high, and I love a young man so humble but also so hardworking.
I think he will be rookie of the year, and if not that then definitely first team all rookie. All Star is a bit too high for him to reach right now, but we will see how his game has improved as the season goes on. It is going to be an amazing year of basketball and though Oladipo will probably not play playoff basketball this season I still see a lot of it in his future. Just probably not going to happen this season.
