Victor Oladipo reacts to being named an NBA All-Star

Victor Oladipo, Pacers

Victor Oladipo’s phone buzzed Tuesday. It was Pacers President Kevin Pritchard, the executive who orchestrated the move that brought Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis to Indy last summer.

He had the honor of alerting Oladipo that he was voted an All-Star reserve by NBA head coaches.

For the first time in his five years as a pro, he would participate in the game showcasing the world’s best basketball players.

“Fitting that he would call me first,” Oladipo said Wednesday morning. “It’s awesome. It was a great moment for me. It was just special, just hearing from him and hearing his words and everything like that was a special moment – something I’ll never forget.”
