Victor Oladipo is going to finish high up on the season-end Top 10 blocks highlight packages with that one.

The Orlando Magic rookie skied to send back a dunk attempt by Damian Lillard. That was just a flat-out impressive athletic play.

    He’s definitely had some issues adjusting to the NBA but it’s plays like this and a similar block he had earlier in the year that show why he went number two in the draft.

    Now that he is figuring out that he doesn’t have to play at 100 mph he’s gotten better.

    He’s only going to keep getting better.
