Minutes after being eliminated from the postseason, Victor Oladipo was ready to get started for next year.

The Indiana Pacers star's trainer, David Alexander, posted a text from the guard Sunday immediately after the Pacers' Game 7 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers:

Oladipo scored 30 points and grabbed 12 rebounds, giving him 22.7 points and 8.3 rebounds per game during the series. While he was unable to help his team knock off LeBron James and Co. in the first round, he made major strides over the past year.

Playing for his third squad in his five seasons in the NBA, the 25-year-old morphed from a role player with the Oklahoma City Thunder last season into an All-Star this season.

If his hard work is any indication, he will continue his trajectory toward stardom.
