Victor Oladipo is back -- now the real work begins for Indiana and its star

VICTOR OLADIPO RARELY gets frustrated.

So when he was standing on the court before tipoff between the Indiana Pacers and New York Knicks on Feb. 1 and kept messing up his intricate dueling circus dribbling routine -- between the legs, loop one over the other, switch hands, quick staccato bounces, switch hands again -- he just put one ball down and laughed.

Eventually, the guard moved on to his pregame shooting drill. Nothing was falling. He missed six or seven 3s in a row.

It had to be his tucked-in T-shirt, he thought, pulling it out from his waistband.
