    Exclamation Victor Oladipo vs. the World (saturday morning!!!)

    Don't forget to set your alarm clocks! 11 am Saturday it's our own Victor Oladipo leading Team Africa against Team World.

    It's on ESPN2, Chris Denari and Quinn Buckner doing the play-by-play.

    Nuntius was right for a while. I was wrong for a while. But ultimately I was right and Frank Vogel has been let go.

    No doubts regarding Oladipo's athleticism on that alley-oop. Man.

    Apparently they're not doing the ESPN2 broadcast.

    I was surprised that so many of the World players were representing the US. I was expecting them to have players from more continents. An asia rep, an australia rep, a south america rep, etc.

    Why aren't the jersey numbers unique? I know Team Africa has two players wearing 5. And Team World has two players wearing 7.

    I mentioned this in a thread on RealGM, but damn... the team they assembled for Africa had dreadful offensive players. The reason why Oladipo and Mudiay had to take most of the shots.

    Oladipo (decent)
    Mudiay (okay)
    Sefolosha (no)
    Ibaka (no)
    Capela (no)
    Biyombo (no)
    Schroeder (okay)
    Mbah a Moute (meh)
    Dieng (no)
    Mejri (who???)

    Even though this game wasn't a regular season NBA game it still gives me a little hope that Oladipo can be pretty damn good for us

    He just continues to strike me as very, very solid. Not a star, better than a role player.

    The future Olajuwons were in that crowd, and they all became Pacers fans today. #BuildingFor2028

    I think V.O. is driven to get better and that can only bode well for the Pacers

    I never felt we lost this trade but seeing Oladipo in non-season form with 28 pts was pretty awesome. Depending on if Paul leaves OKC or not we might actually win this trade in the long run. Right now I would say we are even, only because we did lose an elite talent.

    This is exactly what we should expect from Oladipo this season. That is, his season averages will look really nice, but he'll do it inefficiently and his team will usually lose. 5 assists, 4 turnovers. 1.12 points per shot. Those aren't good numbers.

    Brace yourself, because VO is going to be extremely polarizing around here.
