Victor Oladipo - 360 Dunk vs Illinois

The newest member of the Orlando Magic gets the ball on the wide open breakaway and throws down a 360!
Victor Oladipo was the second pick in the 2013 draft and looks to become the MAgic's new shooting guard.  This could mean they are looking to trade more aggressively Aaron Afflalo who was already made available.  The Magic have looked into trading Afflalo for Eric Bledsoe who they are high on and now it looks like they need to to make room for Oladipo.
Oladipo was named College Basketball Player of the year by Sporting News Men's and National Co Defensive Player of the Year and was a First Team All American while at Indiana University.
His athleticism and fearlessness gave him comparisons to Dwayne Wade who also struggled with his shot coming out of college.  Oladipo, however, is known more for his defensive stopping ability and relentless energy on both ends of the ball.
The Magic look like they have a good building block to rebuild their team in Oladipo.

Anthony Bennett Monster Dunk vs. UNC

The newest Cleveland Cavalier and number 1 pick dunks against North Carolina.  Anthony Bennet is a beast at 6'8'' 250 pounds and can be a physical force inside and outside for the Cavs.  Many have compared him to the legend Larry Johnson who threw down huge dunks and had a similar body type.  

Critics have questioned whether or not Anthony Bennet is a power forward or a small forward and for the start of his career he will be playing mostly small forward probably.  This is because of Tristan Thompson becoming a solid starter at power forward last year.  There is also question if Bennet will even start for the Cavs starting out of the gate which is rare for a number one pick.  

Cleveland fans and NBA enthusiasts were all shocked by the selection of Bennet at number one.  Let's hope that they are wrong and he plays at an all star level.
