For a person who engages in a competitive endeavor, Victor Oladipo sure has a great name. “Victor”. It gives him that extra little “oomph” before a game even starts. The subconscious effect on the opposition cannot be understated. They look at the opposing roster, see the name “Victor Oladipo”, and a little part of their mind circumvents the rest and says “Well, that’s it. Might as well give up now.” The rest of the mind tries to reject this negative idea, but the damage has already been done.
If you are still skeptical, think about if his name was “Loser Oladipo”. Yeah. I thought so.
