Basketball Player of the Year, the National Co-Defensive Player of the
Year, and a first-team All-American by the USBWA and Sporting News.
That same year, he was also named the winner of the Adolph Rupp
Trophy, given annually to the top player in men's NCAA Division I
basketball. Oladipo was drafted with the second overall pick in the

Oladipo chose to play basketball at Indiana University and major in
sports communication broadcasting, turning down offers from Notre
Dame, Maryland, Xavier and others. Upon his commitment to Indiana
he said, "It's like a basketball atmosphere everywhere you
Bloomington, Indiana is a basketball town. That's perfect."
As a freshman during the 2010–11 season, Oladipo played in 32 games
(five starts), averaging 7.4 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.06 steals in
18.0 minutes per game, while shooting .547 from the field. He
earned his first career start against Penn State on December 27 and
responded with 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting, four rebounds, three
steals, and two assists in 27 minutes of action.

As a sophomore during the 2011–12 season, Oladipo averaged 10.9
points and 5.5 rebounds in 26.7 minutes per game (47.1% FG, 75% FT).
Some commentators referred to him as Indiana's "most improved player
this season" and he was often cited as the team's best defender.
Oladipo scored 10 or more points in 21 games, 11 more games than the
previous year. He also increased his free throw percentage from 61 to
75, shooting four times per game. The Hoosiers' record in 2011–12
improved by fifteen games over the prior season. The team earned a #4
seed in the 2012 NCAA Tournament and defeated New Mexico State in the
second round. After defeating VCU in the third round, the Hoosiers
lost in the Sweet Sixteen to Kentucky, the eventual national
Despite an Indiana roster deep with talent, including Preseason Player
of the Year Cody Zeller, Oladipo emerged as one of the nation's
biggest stars. Midway through the season,
ESPN reporter Eamonn
Brenann wrote, "In 2½ seasons in Bloomington, Oladipo has morphed
from a raw athletic specimen to a defensive specialist/energy glue guy
– he became a hit with IU fans for holding his hand in front of his
face after dunks at home, typically after a steal he himself created
– into a sudden, stunning, bona fide collegiate star." Due in
part to Oladipo's leadership, the Indiana Hoosiers finished the
2012–13 season as the outright Big Ten champions.
At the end of the regular season, Oladipo ranked fourth in the country
in field goal percentage (61.4), on pace to have the highest field
goal percentage by any guard since the 1996–97 season. He ranked
third in the nation in true shooting percentage (68.4), which measures
shooting efficiency that takes into account field goals, three-point
field goals and free throws. He also averaged 1.39 points per play and
shot 73.9% on offensive rebound put-backs, both of which ranked among
the top five in the country.
On defense Oladipo was arguably even more dominating. In a game that
season against No. 1 ranked Michigan, he guarded four different
players in 45 possessions, but only gave up four points. Among
Wooden Award finalists, he had the best net rating—which is the
difference between points produced and points allowed per 100
possessions. Oladipo produced 42 more points than he allowed per 100
possessions. Each game he drew the opponent's top perimeter
player, and his five percent steal rate (2.2 per game) ranked 15th in
the country. His 69 steals during the season is second all-time at
Isiah Thomas who had 74 during the 1980–81 national
In 2012–13, Oladipo played and started in all 36 games, averaging
13.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 2.17 steals in 28.4 minutes
per game, while shooting .599 (182-304) from the field and .441
(30-68) from three-point range. At the conclusion of his junior year,
Oladipo racked up numerous awards. He was named the Sporting News
Basketball Player of the Year, the National Co-Defensive
Player of the Year, and a first-team All-American by the USBWA and
Sporting News. In conference honors, he was named a unanimous pick to
the first-team All-Big Ten by both the coaches and media, and was
named Big Ten Defensive Player of the year.
Orlando Magic (2013–2016)
On April 9, 2013, at a press conference with Tom Crean, Oladipo
announced his decision to forgo his senior season at Indiana and enter
the 2013 NBA draft. He was projected as a lottery pick by
ESPN and CBS
Sports. Oladipo was invited to sit in the "green room" during the
draft and was selected second overall by the Orlando Magic, later
signing his rookie scale contract with the Magic on July 8.
When the 2013 rookie class convened for its annual photo shoot and
filled out its
NBA.com Rookie Survey, the class voted Oladipo as the
best defender, the co-favorite 2013–14 Rookie of the Year (with C.
J. McCollum), the co-favorite to have the best career (with Kelly
Olynyk) and second most athletic (behind Tony Mitchell).
Oladipo with the Magic in 2013
On December 3, 2013, Oladipo recorded his first career triple-double
with 26 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in a double overtime loss
to the Philadelphia 76ers. Rookie
Michael Carter-Williams of the 76ers
also recorded his first career triple-double in the same game, marking
the first and only time in NBA history that two rookies have recorded
triple-doubles in the same game. The last time that two players
had recorded their first career triple-doubles in the same game was
when Detroit Pistons' pair
Donnie Butcher and Ray Scott did it on
March 14, 1964 (they were not rookies). It was also the first time
that two opponents had recorded triple-doubles in the same game since
Caron Butler and
Baron Davis had done so on November 23, 2007.
During the month of February, Oladipo had ended up participating in
under both the BBVA
Rising Stars Challenge
Rising Stars Challenge and the Taco Bell Skills
Challenge. For the Rising Stars Challenge, he was selected as a late
player for Chris Webber's team, which was composed mostly of rookie
players mixed in with two sophomore players, while the latter
competition had him pairing up with rookie rival Carter-Williams as
one of four teams competing for the prize. The team both Oladipo and
Carter-Williams were on was also the only team competing with two
rookies in place.
On February 21, 2014, Oladipo recorded a career high 14 assists, along
with 30 points, 9 rebounds and 1 steal, in a 129-121 double overtime
victory over the New York Knicks. He went on to finish second in
Rookie of the Year voting behind Carter-Williams.
Oladipo in November 2014
On October 24, 2014, Oladipo was ruled out indefinitely after
suffering a facial fracture in practice the previous day. Two days
later, the Magic exercised their third-year team option on Oladipo's
rookie scale contract, extending the contract through the 2015–16
season. He made his return from injury on November 14 wearing a
facial protection mask as he made his season debut against the
Milwaukee Bucks. In 25 minutes off the bench, he recorded 13 points, 3
rebounds and 2 assists in a 101–85 win. On January 12, he
recorded 33 points against the Chicago Bulls and two days later
recorded 32 points against the
Houston Rockets to record his first
career back-to-back 30-point games.
During the 2015
NBA All-Star Weekend, Oladipo competed in the Rising
Stars Challenge and the Slam Dunk Contest, finishing second in
the dunk contest behind Zach LaVine.
On March 4, 2015, Oladipo scored a career-high 38 points on 15-of-25
shooting in a loss to the Phoenix Suns.
On October 25, 2015, the Magic exercised their fourth-year team option
on Oladipo's rookie scale contract, extending the contract through the
2016–17 season. Five days later, he recorded his second career
triple-double with 21 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists in a double
overtime loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. He also hit a buzzer
beating three-pointer to send the game into double overtime.
Oladipo averaged just 12.8 points per game over his first 12 games of
the season. Head coach
Scott Skiles moved Oladipo to a bench role for
the Magic's November 25 game against the New York Knicks. He
subsequently scored a then season-high 24 points. Oladipo
continued coming off the bench following this performance, averaging
17.0 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.4 blocks over
his first eight games off the bench. Oladipo fell into a shooting
slump in late December, going 14-of-53 (26.4 percent) in six games
between December 20–30.
In the Magic's first game of 2016 on January 1, he had his best
performance since December 5, scoring a team-high 20 points on 8-of-18
shooting and adding 5 assists in a loss to the Washington Wizards.
On January 4, he started for the Magic for the first time since
November 23. In 34 minutes of action, he recorded a team-high 18
points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 steals in a loss to the Detroit
Pistons. He started for the third straight game on January 8 and
scored 20 points on a career-high six three-pointers, helping the
Magic defeat the
Brooklyn Nets 83–77. On January 14, he scored
27 points in a loss to the
Toronto Raptors in London. After
spraining his knee in that game, Oladipo sat out the team's next two
games. In his return game on January 22, he scored 29 points on
11-of-19 shooting, starting alongside Elfrid Payton, in a 120–116
overtime loss to the Charlotte Hornets. On February 3, he scored
37 points against the Oklahoma City Thunder, one point shy of his
career high. On February 19, he recorded 17 points and a
career-high 14 rebounds in a 110–104 overtime win over the Dallas
Mavericks. On March 18, he scored a career-high 45 points in a
109–103 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, becoming the ninth player
in franchise history score 40 and the first Magic player to do so
Arron Afflalo in December 2013. To conclude the season,
Oladipo missed the final three games with a concussion.
Oklahoma City Thunder
Oklahoma City Thunder (2016–2017)
On June 23, 2016, Oladipo was traded, along with
Ersan İlyasova and
the draft rights to Domantas Sabonis, to the
Orlando Magic in exchange
for Serge Ibaka. He made his debut for the Thunder in their season
opener on October 26, scoring 10 points in 26 minutes as a starter in
a 103–97 win over the Philadelphia 76ers. On October 31, he
signed a four-year, $84 million contract extension with the
Thunder. On November 16, he recorded season highs of 29 points
and 10 rebounds in a 105–103 win over the Houston Rockets. A
right wrist injury in mid-December forced Oladipo to miss nine
straight games. He returned to action on December 31 and scored 15
points against the Los Angeles Clippers. On February 5, 2017, he
recorded 24 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two
blocked shots in a 105–99 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.
On March 7, 2017, Oladipo returned to the starting lineup after
missing six games with back spasms and scored 16 points in a 126–121
loss to Portland.
Indiana Pacers (2017–present)
Oladipo (left) with the Pacers in 2018.
On July 6, 2017, Oladipo was traded, along with Domantas Sabonis, to
Indiana Pacers in exchange for Paul George. In his debut for
the Pacers in their season opener on October 18, 2017, Oladipo had 22
points, five rebounds, four steals and four assists in a 140–131 win
over the Brooklyn Nets. Seven days later, he scored a game-high 35

team, the Oklahoma City Thunder. On October 29, he knocked down a
step-back 3-pointer with 10 seconds left to complete a late rally and
give Indiana a rare 97–94 victory over the San Antonio Spurs.
Oladipo finished with 23 points and five assists and led the Pacers in
scoring for the sixth time in six games. He was subsequently named
Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played October
23–29. On December 1, he scored a season-high 36 points in a
120–115 loss to the Toronto Raptors. On December 8, he recorded
33 points and eight rebounds with six three-pointers in a 106–102
win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Two days later, he had a
career-high 47 points and added seven rebounds and six assists to lead
the Pacers to a 126–116 overtime win over the Denver Nuggets. He
was subsequently named Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games
played December 4–10. On December 18, he scored 12 of his 38
points in the final two minutes of the Pacers' 112–111 loss to the
Boston Celtics. On December 23, he had another 38-point effort in
a 123–119 overtime win over the Nets. On January 23, 2018, he
was named an Eastern Conference All-Star reserve. On March 19,
2018, in a 110–100 win over the Los Angeles Lakers, Oladipo extended
his streak of consecutive games with a steal to 54, breaking a tie
Ron Harper for No. 8 in league history. Four days later, in a
109–104 win over the Los Angeles Clippers, Oladipo extended his
streak to 56 games, breaking a tie with

Oladipo is a shooting guard who is also capable of playing point
guard. Indiana coach Tom Crean would frequently attribute
Oladipo's success to his extreme work ethic and pre-game preparation
of reviewing film. Oladipo is known for entertaining fans with
exciting dunks. As announcer
Clark Kellogg noted, "
Victor Oladipo is
like a baby's bottom, smooth and sometimes... explosive."
On offense, Oladipo is capable of aggressively and quickly driving to
the basket, aided by unparalleled athletic leaping ability. Following
a victory by Indiana over #1 ranked Michigan, coach John Beilein
remarked, "I've seen a lot of players. I don't know whether I've seen
one quicker or faster, more athletic, than Oladipo. It's tough to stay
in front of him." His offensive proficiency improved as his
outside shooting range improved each year of his collegiate career.
On defense, Oladipo is a "lockdown off-ball defender who can defend
multiple positions". He has the quickness to guard point guards
and the strength and athleticism to fight around a forward and get to
a front if caught in a mismatch. His athleticism and anticipation
makes it hard to set a screen on him. He also does a great job of
rebounding at his position.
