“I think this is who I am. I think I can bring that every night, and I’m going to.”
That is what Victor Oladpio of the Pacers told NBC Sports’ Dan Feldman — and he was certainly brought it on Friday night against the Bulls. After a couple of good games he bounced back against the Chicago “defense,” and that included a 360 in-game dunk.
He was brought in originally to be the sixth man in Oklahoma City (the guy who would lead the second unit when Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook sat), but when KD left Oladipo’s role changed — and he got hammered for how he played it.
But put in a better spot in Indiana he has thrived.
