Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo impressed competing against superstar Kevin Durant during last week’s George C. Goodman League Roundball Classic.
Although Durant dropped 40 points, the 21-year-old Oladipo countered with 28 points of his own.
Despite getting burnt by Durant, Oladipo’s a shutdown defender capable of handcuffing the opposition’s premier scorer.
The Maryland native is an extremely raw talent who has long been criticized for lacking a jumper.
Regardless, a defensive virtuoso who will create turnovers and benefit in transition, Oladipo always finds ways to produce on the hardwood.
A first-team AP All-American, the former Hoosier’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 sparkle.
Ready to dazzle with the Magic in “The City Beautiful,” expect Victor Oladipo to win the 2014 NBA Rookie of the Year Award.by
