Upstanding Indiana Hoosiers shooting guard Victor Oladipo snubs the Washington Wizards

Victor Oladipo could have been magic as a Washington Wizard.

Acting like a diva, the Washington Post reports that former Indiana Hoosiers shooting guard Victor Oladipo declined an invitation to workout for the Wizards.

Impressing scouts with his blanket defense and brilliant athleticism, the 21-year-old Oladipo apparently won’t travel to tryout for Washington.

Selecting third overall in the draft, the Wizards likely wouldn’t choose the 6-foot-5, 215 pound Oladipo anyway.

Nevertheless, Oladipo should be flattered by Washington’s courtship and have interest in teaming with star John Wall and solid ballplayers Bradley Beal, Nene, Martell Webster and Emeka Okafor.

Concluding the season 29-53 and ranked 28th in total offense, the first-team AP All-America honoree is a defensive virtuoso who would create turnovers and benefit from Wall’s outstanding passing ability.

Despite averaging 13.6 points, 6.3 boards and 2.1 assists over 36 games as a junior during the 2012-2013 campaign, Oladipo remains an extremely raw talent.

However, considering the aerial artist’s famed diligence and preparation, Oladipo will ultimately thrive in the association.

A first-team All-Big 10 pick who graduated college in three years, Oladipo was born to Nigerian parents and raised in Hyattsville, Maryland.

Considering the proximity between Hyattsville and “the District,” it’s bizarre that an upstanding Hoosier would snub the Wizards.

Rightly bolting early from Assembly Hall, Victor Oladipo is wrong to deny the Washington Wizards.
