“I don’t know how to take time off,” Victor Oladipo told a reporter after Game 7.
No kidding. About 16 minutes after the Pacers season ended with the Game 7 defeat to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, Oladipo texted his trainer about getting started on his workouts.
“When do we start?” Oladipo texted the trainer. “I’m ready to take it to another level.”
His trainer posted the message on Instagram.
His off-season workouts last season were a huge part of his success this year. He started eating right, famously quitting his favorite food joint Popeyes, and got into the best shape of his life. The Indiana Pacers couldn’t be happier with the player that Oladipo has become this season and he’s never satisfied, always looking to improve.
“Honestly, I feel like I haven’t even scratched the surface of how good I can be,” he said after today’s game.
