Until they compete in regular-season games, you never truly know with NBA rookies.

Sure things have sputtered out and relative unknowns have immediately emerged. Happens every year.

But many have opined that, of this year’s watered down group of first-year players, former Indiana guard Victor Oladipo, who went 2nd overall to the Orlando Magic, may be the most NBA-ready.

We’ll know better come early November. But for now, the youngster gave us a promising sneak peak, holding his own against Kevin Durant in the Goodman League in Washington D.C. earlier this week.

Check the highlights above.

It’s not in a raucous playoff environment where he’s facing an amped up KD and Russell Westbrook. It’s not even a surprisingly competitive summer league game (where he excelled a few months ago). But it’s still interesting and it’s still impressive.
