Victor Oladipo: The NBA’s John Legend

You’ve seen him dunk. You’ve seen the chase-down blocks. You’ve seen the game-winners. You’ve read the hype. But have you heard Victor Oladipo sing?

According to the video description on YouTube, Oladipo showcased his singing ability at the Spirit of Indiana Showcase last year – an event which honors the best student-athletes at Indiana University – and he killed it. And it’s not like he sang some easy song. He sang Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine,” which is no piece of cake. (Thanks for teaching me that, Simon Cowell).

If Victor Oladipo wasn’t already your favorite rookie, prepare to be wooed.

Take it away, Victor.

So. Much. Swag.

It’s good to know that Oladipo can just trade in his basketball sneakers for a microphone when his playing days are over in like 15 years.
