Victor Oladipo was widely considered the best player in college basketball last year, evidenced by his Sporting News National Player of the Year Award and Co-Defensive Player of the Year Award at Indiana. He made a name on his defense and quickness and rode that reputation to the No. 2 overall pick in June’s NBA Draft.
What people didn’t realize was how terrific he can be on offense. Include the Brooklyn Nets in that group of people.
In what should have been a Brooklyn victory on paper, Oladipo took over the game coming off the bench, scoring 19 points in just 21 minutes of action on 8-of-13 shooting, including two eye-opening spin moves: one in the air, the other on the ground, but both leading to buckets.
