    I just think it is expected and as long as it is a player that could help the P's I think it is a fine convo to have. The fact Vic plays for IU should be irrelevant to the topic of he would impact the Pacers.
    Agreed, I guess since most people on here will watch more college ball from this state those headed to the NBA will have more eyes on him and more mouths talking on PD.

    I know he is listed at 6'5". So why is he always smaller against his opponent when they maybe listed at 6'4". I mean he looked smallish against Butler and didn't look any taller then Clark and we know Clark isn't close to 6'5". I will be interested what he measures at the combine. I say 6'21/2".
    He's not.

    Wait... you don't think he's taller than Rotnei Clarke? Are you sure you know who Victor Oladipo is?

    I think cause he hunches over when he's playing defense.

    He looks smallish because when you play perimeter defense you want to have a lower stance, giving you increased balance and lateral speed. He's not going to stand straight up trying to D up any D1 guard. He's like a coiled spring.

    Black Mamba, and Black Falcon are already taken but I think we could put our heads together as a board and find a suitable nickname for the guy. Honestly if he had converted that oop from Hulls against Mich he'd already have one. I like Home Depot as a play on words but there's something about a true alterego generating nickname. They're just awesome. The Truth, The Big Ticket, The Big Fundemental, The Answer, etc.

    He looks a good 5" taller than the 6'0" Clark to me...

    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.
    so basically DG for Oldapido straight up? A lot of you are underrating DG terribly. Remember what happened after he went out against the Heat? (And please don't start comparing (this or any) regular season with playoffs. Playoff basketball is a different animal.

    I said I think he will measure at the combine at 6' 21/2". I could be wrong, but Tom is like 5'10", Hulls is listed at 6' and Vic is not much taller then them. Many players are listed taller then they are. We will find out soon enough on his exact height.

    Are you sure you have watched Indiana play? Oladipo is a lot taller than Hulls. I agree that he might not be 6'5, but I don't think he's any smaller than 6'4. Hulls is probably 5'10. I'm 5'10 and stood next to Hulls and he is no taller than me.

    I've watched at least 20-25 games in 2 seasons.

    You just validated my whole point tho with the 2" difference of Hulls, Thx.

    Will Sheehey is listed at 6'7, so I guess he could actually be 5'11 and Oladipo is really 5'9. But if we go by how everybody on every reputable site has him listed I think it looks right. Will being about 2'' maybe, 3'' taller than him.

    Link/Pic for comparison

    Let's just not talk about it... Vic did get up there for that block though. Gotta talk on defense!

    I can't give him credit for the block when the only reason he had to make a play is becuase of a terrible turnover.

    At this point, I'm hoping Oladipo struggles down the stretch so that the Pacers actually do get a chance at him.

    For what it's worth, Draftexpress has the Pacers taking him #21.

    You really like him this much huh? I mean don't get me wrong I think he's a great player, I'm just a little surprised I guess by the overwhelming support he seems to have

    That's exactly what I thought after the loss last night. Can anyone look at the current draft order on Draftexpress and tell me one player that would be better than Victor for this team and city? Come on, he's got the motor, the defense, the high shooting percentage, the ability to make highlight film dunks, and good character. Man he would bring some Swag!

    The problem is at this point in order for the P's to get him he is going to need to drop into the 25 range which would mean he would need to drop about 10 spots from where Chad Ford has him right now. And while I'm sure everyone is rooting for an IU implosion I'm not sure it's actually that likely.

    I wish the Purdue fans would get off the mindset that we just want Vic because we are homies for IU. Good grief, I'm a Purdue grad, but a Pacer fan too. This kid would be fun to watch and he would sell tickets.

    Not to mention almost every single IU fan would be immediately interested in the Pacers, for at least one season.

    I do. He's a really good college player, but I think his game will actually translate better to the NBA, and especially to this team. He would make the ideal 2 between George Hill and Paul George, which I think is the Pacers' biggest need going forward (assuming David West gets re-signed this summer). Everything he needs to improve on (shooting, ball handling, etc.), is stuff that typically players improve on in the NBA. Things that typically players can't improve on, he's already got. He has plenty of size to play either guard position in the league, he sees plays developing before everybody else, his motor never stops at either end, he doesn't need to score to help you, and I'd be surprised if he doesn't grade out as an elite athlete at the combine. He's basically everything I look for in a college player.

    That play at the end of the game last night was one of my favorite plays this year. He made a poor decision by trying to go around his back in traffic, and that turnover was a killer, but he never quit on the play and made the spectacular block on the other end. He isn't a perfect, complete player, but he's got a chance to be a very, very good NBA two-guard.
