Victor Oladipo crushed his 'In My Feelings' challenge

The latest viral sensation stems from Drake's new song 'In My Feelings' and it's breaking the internet. There's something about these challenges that interest the sports world and professional athletes themselves. 

Remember when the Miami Heat released their Harlem Shake music video? This viral sensation would be the start of many more to come. 

A year later, in 2014, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge took center stage. The New York Jets released their music video after being nominated by the Jimmy Fallon from The Tonight Show and the New England Patriots. 

In March of 2016, the “Running Man” was created after University of Maryland basketball players Jared Nickens and Jaylen Brantley posted an Instagram video dancing to Ghost Town DJ's 1996 classic "My Boo".  

Then came the Mannequin Challenge, where people remained frozen while “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd played in the background. The New York Giants joined in on the fun from their locker room. 

This year's craze all began when social media star @TheShiggyShow posted a video interpreting Drake's lyrics through dance moves. 

Upper Marlboro, Md. native and DeMatha Catholic High School alum Victor Oladipo posted his challenge on Instagram Tuesday. 

Oladipo just continues to show he is a true renaissance man. First showing off his vocals at last month's NBA Awards and now this. That man is one smooth cat.
