Indiana Pacers: 3 Improvements Victor Oladipo Must Make in 2018-19

Victor Oladipo became the face of the Indiana Pacers last season after being acquired in the blockbuster trade that sent Paul George to the Oklahoma City Thunder. After the media and fans wrote the Pacers off, Oladipo led the team to 48 wins and pushed LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers to seven games in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.

Not only did Oladipo lead the team to success, he also made the All-Star game for the first time and won the Most Improved Player of the Year Award.

Oladipo ended up averaging 23.1 points per game to go along with 5.2 rebound and 4.3 assists. He shot 47.7 percent from the field overall and knocked down 37.1 percent of his three-point attempts. In addition to his offensive numbers, Oladipo also racked up 2.4 steals per game.

It was a successful season for Oladipo, to say the least. Immediately following elimination from the playoffs, Oladipo was already talking about getting back into the gym and working hard to get better. That kind of attitude is exactly what made the Pacers such a good team last year.

Despite the big season from Oladipo, there are still areas that he needs to improve his game. Indiana is a piece or two away from competing for the Eastern Conference title and getting into the NBA Finals. One of those pieces could end up being Oladipo making another step towards superstardom.

All of that being said, what three improvements does Oladipo need to make ahead of the 2018-19 NBA season?
