Victor Oladipo on his return to Indiana, that ‘Black Panther’ mask and how he passes the time on the team plane

Newcomer Victor Oladipo and the Indiana Pacers have clinched a playoff spot. The former Indiana Hoosier became an NBA All-Star for the first time this season. And in the 2018 Verizon Slam Dunk Contest, the guard with Nigerian roots represented Wakanda by wearing a mask from the movie Black Panther.

In other words, everything has been great for Oladipo since he got back to the Hoosier State.

“I put in a lot of work,” Oladipo said. “So I work hard and I tried to prepare myself for anything possible coming into this year, any position they want me to be in, and I’ve just got to continue to keep getting better and building on it. I think the opportunity here in Indiana and my role here on the team is the reason why I’m successful, so it’s a little bit of everything.

“The work I put in. The way I changed my body. Obviously, my role and the change of scenery helped as well. So I’ve just got to continue to keep getting better so I can get to where I want to be.”

Oladipo recently talked to The Undefeated about his success after being traded from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Pacers last offseason, Black Panther, his Nigerian roots, his love for the television show Martin and more.
