In a media availability on Friday afternoon,with Coach McMillan and Victor Oladipo, Victor was asked about whether or not he has made a decision to play.
“I’ll decide tomorrow, meet with the coaching staff, meet with the medical staff...just gotta wait and see til tomorrow,” Oladipo said.
After playing and starting in all three scrimmage for the Pacers leading up to the seeding games, Oladipo practiced on Friday and said that he was “feeling good.”
I asked Victor about the varied responses he’s received since he made his initial statement through The Athletic on July 3rd.
“It is part of life,” Oladipo said. “There are 8 billion people out here. At the end of the day you need to do what is best for you.”
Vic added that he’s not taking it personally and understands that people were upset with the situation.
He ended his availability with an energetic “Stay feathery!”
