Did you watch Thursday’s Team USA scrimmage in Las Vegas? If not, you missed a litany of high-flying dunks and impressive moves that left the Thomas & Mack Center crowd on its feet.
If you did tune in, you probably saw this nasty crossover by Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo on Milwaukee Bucks guard Michael Charter-Williams. And to Carter-Williams’ credit, he does a reasonable job of staying in front of Oladipo and not buying too much into the fakes.
It’s just that, you know, Oladipo’s arms go forever, and he’s so explosive, and apparently a rim said some nasty things about a family member one time, so now he has a personal vendetta against every basketball rim ever created. It’s not your fault, MCW. Oladipo just had some unfinished business to handle.
Oladipo finished the scrimmage with 25 points for Team Blue, a couple of impressive dunks, and one shimmy. Not a bad box score.
