Denton: Oladipo Accepts Challenges Ahead


By John Denton

Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo is just a week into the first training camp of his NBA career, but he already has the wherewithal to know the challenges that lie ahead for him during his rookie season.

He admitted recently that the fact that every NBA player is big, strong and/or quick can be somewhat jarring to the senses of someone used to playing at the college level.

The degree of difficulty of Oladipo’s rookie season was also ratcheted up several notches when it was decided that he would split his time between shooting guard and point guard, a tricky transition that has provided sleepless nights to even the brightest of prospects.
