Victor Oladipo’s Emotional And Inspiring Message After Horrific Knee Injury


Unfortunately we’ve seen too many gruesome injuries happen to players on court in the last couple of seasons. This past week, Indiana Pacers All-Star Victor Oladipo was the newest victim to such horrific injury.

Oladipo suffered a knee injury while trying to intercept a long pass during last night’s game between the Pacers and Raptors. He had to be stretchered off the court, with tears in his eyes, and instantly had a towel put over his leg so nobody had to see it. He suffered a ruptured quad tendon and requires surgery. Dipo will miss the remainder of the season.

Yesterday, Oladipo himself went public for the first time since suffering the injury and posted an emotional and inspiring message on Instagram.


“I can’t even lie the last few months have been really tough for not only me but for my family as well. You give it your all, literally your blood, sweat and tears to the game you love and things like this happen. No matter how much hard work and effort you put into perfecting your craft you cannot predict the challenges you’ll face ahead. But there is always that point in time where you wonder why it’s happening to you. You even wonder if there was something you could have done differently to prevent the outcome. The confusion, the contemplation, the anger, the sadness and the tears that flow frequently come, but they never last. The amount of support, love and prayers that I have received over the past few days have been breathtaking and has truly inspired me to come back even better than before. Thank you to everyone including all my teammates, pacer fans and staff. Thank you to all the NBA fans around the world and all my brothers around the league who texted, called, tweeted and posted me I am truly thankful. It’s going to be tough but tough times don’t last tough people do. It’s time for me to truly practice what I preach and trust my God in heaven and the plan he has for me. I will be back better than ever and if you question that well, thank you. Greater is he that is in me than he that is in the world! I am #UnBreakable.”
