Oladipo is very proud of his Nigerian heritage and he said that his mother is very aware that her son could play for her native country. Nigeria, the 2015 Africas champion, still must qualify for the Olympics next summer. “My mom obviously knows because she pays attention to stuff like that, but she’s never mentioned anything to me about it,’’ Oladipo said with a chuckle. “I just go out there and play basketball. Whatever decision comes, I’ll make that decision when I need to.’’

In casting a wide net for candidates for its 2016 Olympic team, USA Basketball has handed out a slew of invites to new players for an upcoming minicamp in Las Vegas, according to league sources. Sources told that USAB has extended invitations to Chicago’s Jimmy Butler, Memphis ‘ Mike Conley, Golden State’s Draymond Green and Harrison Barnes, Orlando’s Tobias Harris and Victor Oladipo and Utah’s Trey Burke to its Aug. 11-13 camp on the campus of UNLV.
Victor Oladipo has always been a family-oriented guy. When he rose to national prominence as a star playing basketball at Indiana, he frequently touted his parents, particularly his siblings in his upbringing. Now, as a guard with the Orlando Magic, he’s still giving thanks to his people, particularly his sister, Kendra. His elder, she became deaf in the second grade. It was an adjustment that forced their whole family to make changes. She eventually graduated from Eleanor Roosevelt High in Greenbelt, then on to Gallaudet, where she is now a substitute teacher at the Model Secondary School on campus. Her “little” brother Victor dropped by Wednesday for a visit.
The Magic acquired Green so he could contribute off the bench and serve as a role model and mentor to the team’s youngsters. Green was a positive influence in the Magic locker room, especially for Maurice Harkless, Victor Oladipo and Elfrid Payton. “I talk to Willie every day,” Harkless said in March. “Willie’s definitely somebody that I talk to whenever I get frustrated. He’s the one to talk to. It’s always Willie.”
