Former Hoosiers star Victor Oladipo has been Magic in Orlando

Victor Oladipo is the premier rookie in the NBA.

Electric Magic guard Victor Oladipo sparkled in Friday night’s 97-91 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies in Orlando.

The 21-year-old Oladipo finished with 22 points, four boards, three assists and one steal on 6-of-12 shooting.

Taken second overall out of Indiana by Orlando in June, the 6-foot-5, 215 pound Oladipo continues to aggressively and fearlessly drive to the basket.

Despite lacking a consistent jumper, the former Hoosier has shot at least 50 percent in three of five preseason games.

There is no question that Oladipo remains an extremely raw talent.

Regardless, the Maryland native is a defensive virtuoso who will create turnovers and benefit in transition.

Hence, Oladipo can always find ways to contribute and produce on the hardwood.

A first-team AP All-American, Oladipo’s an aerial artist famed for diligence and preparation.

Removed from a 20-62 season in the Eastern Conference Southeast Division, Orlando is a primarily hideous squad.

However, Oladipo’s lockdown skills, energy, and passion for the sport will eventually allow the Magic to spellbind onlookers.

Already mature enough to dazzle with the Magic in “The City Beautiful,” expect Victor Oladipo to win the 2014 NBA Rookie of the Year Award.
