Vic Van Lier is a main character in NBA2k16: Livin’ Da Dream and the "best friend" of RAGE, who is also known by the alias "Freq". Vic is a constant troublemaker, making life harder for RAGE and his associates.
Vic is introduced during RAGE's time in Harlem, being a slightly arrogant but relatable asshole who is hanging out around Freq and his twin sister Cee-Cee. When RAGE starts risin' to fame, Vic tries to play hero and becomes infamous as "Friend of Freq - FOF", making an ass out of himself and his friend. The team's owner implores RAGE to get rid of him, arguing that Vic is a bad influence and he is going to cause Freq's downfall, but Freq says Vic's his brother and the only link left with da hood. Later on Vic becomes Freq's "Chief Flossin' Officer" and shows his jealous side by accusing RAGE of taking all the fame for himself and tried to steal RAGE's woman, Yvette, but RAGE still forgives him. Vic tries to guilt trip RAGE into funding his career as a rap artist by bringing up the fact that the former's parents died of AIDS, and also that he's been banned from traveling with Freq's team, because those two things are apparently equal. Vic then descends to the "shitbag" level by blackmailing RAGE into loaning him a car because Vic doesn't have a car of his own or a job. Vic died in a car crash, but his last will made the friends tear up slightly before proclaiming him a dirtbag.
Vic also needed RAGE to bail him out of a criminal proceeding, costing RAGE $250,000 in legal fees. This was in between throwing parties with RAGE's money and starting Twitter fights with RAGE's teammates. So with his death nothing of value was lost from RAGE's life other than the car that RAGE had loaned Vic. In fact, by all observable measures, the death of Victor Van Lier improved the lives of every character in NBA2k16. Rest in Power, shitheel.
After his death, Vic's ghost confirmed in a pre-written statement that he was the absolute worst person by emphasising that RAGE's parents and his own mother, who died early in his life, were good people who raised him well, meaning he doesn't have any excuse for who he is.
