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.

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 would pretty much love everything about a George Hill, Victor Oladipo, and Paul George 1-3.

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.
The entire draft. Love the picks of Turner, Young and trading for Christmas.
Signing Glen Robinson III
Trading for Budinger
Signing Monta Ellis
Signing Jordan Hill (not for the player, but for his deal)
Re-signing Stuckey and Allen
This space for rent.

What college player do you see as an ace wing defender like a T. Allen type?

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.
Passion. Pride. Patience. Pacers
If they do, I will quit watching them completely. I don't want any of IU's garbage around the team..... ...
