Cohen’s Analysis: Not since Dwight Howard has there been this much spotlight on a Magic rookie. From the moment David Stern announced that Victor Oladipo was the Magic’s choice with the No. 2 overall pick in last June’s NBA Draft, there has been an abundance of pressure on the 21-year-old.
Oladipo doesn’t appear at all shaken or concerned about it, however. He is embracing the expectations and seems to enjoy the challenges that lie ahead.
So poised and confident, Vic seems like the type of player that excels when there is a bright beam shining down on him.
