IUHoosiers.com: Catching up with … Victor Oladipo

Who are some of the players that you try to emulate on the court?
“Definitely Dwyane Wade. I have been watching him since he was a rookie and because he is six-foot four and I am six-foot four so I can relate to him. I just try to take parts of his game and mix them in with mine. I can’t be exactly like Dwyane Wade, but I take parts of his game and mix them with mine.

“And of course I watch all the greats – Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson – and try to take things from their games. Even the way they act on the court or their mentality so I can stand out.”

On what he likes most about Dwyane Wade’s game:
“How aggressive he is and how well he attacks the basket and finishes. I think I am capable of doing that but I have a lot to work on. I am improving every day and I’m going to keep working hard. I see how easy it is for him to get to the basket, I am trying to get my game like that.”
