Watch: Thunder guard Victor Oladipo nails R.Kelly's 'I Believe I Can Fly'

Victor Oladipo will be getting used to his new surroundings in a few weeks when training camp starts for his new side, the Oklahoma City Thunder.

However, in his previous home comforts of Florida as a member of the Orlando Magic, he was showing off some other of his talents earlier this summer.

Footage has emerged of the super athletic guard singing in front of an impromptu crowd during the summer at a Florida water park.

Have your say on GiveMeSport - NBA by taking part in our survey here:

What was the 24-year-old signing? R.Kelly's 'I Believe I Can Fly', of course.

It has to be said - as you'll see below - it was a pretty damn good rendition.

When asked if he would consider putting out music, Oladipo told TMZ Sports, “A lot of NBA players rap. There ain’t too many that sing. I think it can be something feathery for me. It’s all about living that feathery lifestyle.”

The second overall pick in the 2013 draft has bigger things to worry about than his vocal chords, though.

Since he was traded to OKC, Kevin Durant has joined the Golden State Warriors and now the Thunder are hedging their bets on Oladipo forming a spectacular backcourt with resident superstar Russell Westbrook.

All the ingredients are there to suggest that Oladipo and Westbrook can be a sensational duo, but if he was trying to wriggle his way into the forthcoming Space Jam 2 movie, he might just come up a little short.
