Victor Oladipo texted his trainer 16 minutes after Game 7 loss to start getting better

This is incredible.

Victor Oladipo had a wonderful season for the Indiana Pacers. After being a just a product of the Paul George trade, he turned into the Pacers new superstar overnight. He delivered all season for a team that needed him and that carried into the playoffs as well. He’ll be the unanimous Most Improved Player award later this Spring.

He then led his Pacers to a Game 7 in the first round against LeBron James, which is virtually unheard of. In a four-point loss, Oladipo had 30 points, 12 rebounds, six assists, and three steals. James even congratulated him after the game. That could have been enough for Oladipo to slide into summer vacation.

It wasn’t. He sent a text to his trainer immediately after the game.

If you’re a Pacers fan, you can’t ask for more from your superstar.
