Victor Oladipo didn't disappoint in his long-awaited professional debut on Wednesday night, playing 25 minutes off the bench and finishing with 10 points, 9 rebounds, 5 rebounds and 4 steals. That, in a nutshell, is why Orlando drafted him with the No. 2 pick in June, and why he's regarded as an early favorite for 2013-14 Rookie of the Year -- he can do it all out on the court.
But is this the type of performance we can expect to carry over into the regular season, or simply the case of Oladipo taking advantage of New Orleans' second-stringers in a preaseason game? That's the big question.
