Victor Oladipo was candid and emotional in his recent appearance on The VC Show with Vince Carter of ESPN. Oladipo expressed a high level of confidence in his ability as a player, even after several injury-plagued seasons.
When asked about pushing himself hard in offseason workouts, Oladipo said it's with proving one thing in mind.
“That I’m one of the best players in the world. Period,” Oladipo said. “I think that my injury has kind of built a misconception of who I am as a player.”
Oladipo said he believes he can get back to the All-NBA level he was at before getting hurt.
“Why can’t I come back from this injury and what I’ve been through and have an even greater career than I thought I could have prior to it? Why can’t I?” Oladipo said. “And I don’t see no reason why I can’t."
Oladipo said this is the first offseason in years where he's felt like himself and that he's been able to push himself while working out. That's fueling what he's calling his "Revenge Tour".
“I make sure people know that I’m coming for everybody,” the veteran guard said. “At the end of the day, it really don’t matter who it is. I just want to prove that I’m Victor Oladipo and I stand for who I am.”
