Image Source What’s up basketball fans! I am here again @dwin0603 to give you another basketball discussion for another episode of NBA Talk, and today I will give you a very sad news as rising star Victor Oladipo suffered a serious knee injury in their match against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night. The whole Bankers Life Arena was filled with lonely emotions from all the Indiana fans and from all the players on the court as the rising star guard Victor Oladipo suffered a gruesome injury breaking his leg after he try to stop Pascal Siakam from a fast break play. It's a very sad moment in the NBA today and all I can say is, "injury sucks"! According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Oladipo's season might be over now and that is a big hit in his career. Image Source The whole NBA world gives their support to the all-star guard and they showed their love by tweeting "prayers up for VicOladipo". Players like LeBron James, Karl-Anthony Towns, Devin Booker, Paul George, CJ McCollum and others showed their concern to Vic and wish him a speedy recovery. Here's the scenario. with under five minutes left in the second period, Oladipo missed a step-back jumper and immediately go back on defense and as he is running back, Ibaka get the rebound and pass it to Kyle Lowry who throws a long outlet past to Siakam on the other side of the floor. Oladipo tries to hustle back on defense and prevent the fast break play it looks like he slipped on his own as his knee crashes and hit the floor hard. After that, he just couldn't stand up and he felt there was something different. He then pulled down his knee pad to saw what happened and there it is. It's not very clear what happens but there is something not right with his knee cap. The doctors immediately run to him and look at the situation. Then the doctor cover his knee with a towel and Vic needed to be stretchered off. Dipo will undergo MRI on Thursday. Image Source It was a big loss for Indiana because Victor Oladipo is their best player and he is the reason why the team is so successful today and last season. The Pacers picked up where they left off last season as they are the 3rd seed in the Eastern Conference this season with a record of 32-15 while Victor Oladipo is averaging 18.8 points, 5.2 assists and 5.6 rebounds per game with a player efficiency rating of 17.94. It will be hard for the Pacers to move on and I think their chances in winning in the playoffs will surely decrease. Let's hope and pray that his injury is not that bad. Prayers up for Vic! That is all for today folks. Let's show some love to that young man and pray for his fast recovery. I would love to read your opinions here so drop your comments now and let's have some basketball talk! :) Here is the video of Vic's injury. Video Source
