#2 Victor Oladipo
Cohen’s Analysis: It hasn’t taken long for Oladipo to silence his critics who claim he doesn’t have a jump shot and can’t transition into a point guard.
Already super explosive and relentless defensively, Oladipo has proved this week he can score in a variety of ways. But most impressive is his no fear attitude and willingness to accept contact to force his way to the free throw line. He also isn’t terrified of those anxious moments as we learned when he buried a step-back game-winning jumper.
If he can effectively evolve into a point guard and develop the required vision to facilitate and make others better, Oladipo will become a nightmare for opponents in the backcourt.
