Victor Oladipo offers ‘Most Improved’ prize to domestic violence survivor


Christmas is all about giving.

That is exactly what Indiana Pacers superstar guard Victor Oladipo when he decided to give the Kia car he won as the 2017-18 NBA Most Improved Player to a domestic violence survivor who works with the Julian Center, an Indianapolis organization supporting domestic violence survivors.

Renita Hills was honored on the court during the Pacers’ game Sunday against Washington. Oladipo appeared with the car in a taped message and called Hills “an inspiration to so many people.” Pacers mascot Boomer then gave Hills the keys.

Oladipo, in his sixth season out of Indiana, won the NBA Cares Community Assist Award for December 2015 for his work that includes giving $35,000 to a center that works with children dealing with hearing loss, along with donating a car and money to a single mother and her
daughter to help them transition out of living in an Orlando, Florida, women’s shelter.
