    Olidipo is a stud. Best prospect IU has ever had. It's usually annoying hearing IU fans talking about so and so playing in the NBA.. IU just hasn't had very many NBA prospects. Well this guy's going to be a stud. Easy lottery pick. As the season goes on his stock will go up.

    Scouts love athletes, and players with NBA bodies. Add the fact that he plays with insane intensity, he's a no brainer draft pick because you know he'll contribute period. Well he ever be a star? Who knows. But there's no way he's any worse than Tony Allen. He's going to be a nighmare on defense for guys like EJ, and frankly he might turn into a good scorer too.

    If you all remember, in college Dwyane Wade didn't know how to dribble left either. Seriously. Wade had to go right every time. It was frustrating because he'd still score every time...

    But anywho, love Olidipo's game. Just a badass.

    Besides the injured IU players, IU hasn't offered much. The statement isn't that alarming if you consider IU's history.

    Oladipo's a great prospect, but dude, c'mon. Gordon just a few years ago was multiple tiers above him. Then there's that Zeke dude. And Kirk Haston!

    I have always been a Pacer Fan. The key to building a great team is drafting great players. I think if Victor comes out for the draft, the pacers have to go after him. What are everyone's thoughts on where he would fit in, and/or what would need to get trade to move up in the draft. I don't think he will be there when we draft this year. I want him on our team. What are your thoughts?

    Add in Calbert Cheaney? I know his NBA career didn't pan out but I would suspect most NBA scouts and draft experts would have Calbert as a higher prospect than Victor coming into this years draft if they both were coming out in this years draft.

    I'm an enormous Victor Oladipo fan. He's my favorite player to watch in college basketball, and I think he's going to turn into a good, possibly great NBA player down the line.

    Saying he's the best NBA prospect that IU has ever had right now, is just preposterous.

    I don't know about that. Cal lasted 13 years in the league. Pretty good tenure, I'd say.

    Exactly, I don't even know why these threads exist. There's way too many other options that are realistically in the Pacers future. Discussion of picks 15-35, sure. Then you have a DG trade or trade-up, or just picking in your own spot. There is ALWAYS an NBA players available in the mid-20s.

    And as far as stars go, we already have Paul George. If this is a future where West or Danny are resigned (but not both) then you have 2 with a chance for Roy to be 3 again and Hill just off pace with the top 2. We are covered on big guns. The next few drafts need to either be long term like Bender/Harrington or specialty players to fill out the roster supporting the big 4-5 (Lance or DG or West, some combo of 5 for sure, w/ 3, 24, 55).
    Hibbert a star. LOL Right now he is a joke. Hill will never be more than a role player. And I don't want to hear how if Roy figures it out and gets back to where he was he is an all star. He has had 50 games to figure it out. The problem is the other teams have figured him out. They know how to take him out of a game and it is not hard to do. Also he has a right to start this thread. He wanted peoples opinion that is what this board is supposed to be about. Alot of teams have vision enough to think they could move up in the draft to get a player they like. We do have assets to move up and get someone. It is just our team never seems to do it.

    I appreciate all the great replies to my post that pertain to Victor. Now I know bringing up Dickie V. will stir the pot, so I might as well to keep this thread focused on Vic. What IF, Victor Olidipo, the guy who has more deflections on defense than D.Wade (with the same coach), actually does keep working on using both hands, and turns out to be a monster like Mike Jordon. Do we have the assets to move up in the draft? How far could we move and who would it take to get him? Give me your thoughts on the above.

    SG is the one position the Pacers are set at with Lance and OJ.

    Marcus Smart is the guy I really want, but he'll likely be a top 5-10 pick.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    And yet we're fighting for the top spot in the East with those two guys on the starting unit. To what do you attribute our strong play this year? Dumb luck?
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    It is tantalizing, there's no doubt about that. Vic would fit with everything about the blue collar, gold swagger, bottom to the top style the Pacers are going for. I just think it is an absolute pipe dream at this point. Maybe we can trade Danny and get high enough in that draft, but then again who knows how high Vic will climb by the time this is all said and done.

    What college player do you see as an ace wing defender like a T. Allen type?
    Chad Ford (1:37 PM)

    Victor Oladipo. Can lock down three positions at the next level. Tough and relentless and an elite NBA athlete. If he keeps shooting the ball well throughout the rest of the season, he too has a great shot at the lottery -- maybe even Top 10.
