The Thunder's new backcourt is close. So close that sometimes, when Victor Oladipo has trouble falling asleep, he turns to his teammate for help.
Oladipo on Russell Westbrook singing to him: "Some days at night I can't sleep, and I just call him, and he sings me to sleep."— Fred Katz (@FredKatz) September 24, 2016
Before you speculate wildly about the songs Russell Westbrook might sing, look to some of his past favorites. He's posted himself singing plenty of Taylor Swift, but he's also a fan of Katy Perry, Beyoncé, and R. Kelly, to name a few.
Based on those artists, here are my top guesses for Oladipo lullabies:
- Wildest Dreams, by Taylor Swift (duh)
- Halo, by Beyoncé
- Thinking of You, by Katy Perry
- I Can't Sleep Baby (If I), by R. Kelly
Oladipo is no stranger to exercising his vocals, though. He actually performed at the 2015 All Star Slam Dunk Contest when he was still a rookie for Orlando.
Such style and grace, even Rihanna and Nicki Minaj were impressed. Or at least they definitely had feelings about the performance.
Maybe if counting sheep doesn't work for Westbrook, Oladipo can return the favor.
