Jonas showed his potential against the Americans yesterday afternoon as Lithuania demolished the U.S. 108-75. Valanciunas with an impressive performance! 23 points, 11 boards (three offensive), a block and an assist. Keep doin’ watcha ya doin’ big man.
Word on the street is that when these two cool cats begin their careers playing along side one another, that they can work well as a combination from a defensive perspective. Forgive me, but I’ll believe it when I see it.
Check out what ESPN had to say about one of this summer’s coveted free agents, Tyson Chandler. Sure he’s coming off an amazing playoff and championship season, but at what cost should we be interested?
Two of the last twenty-one NBA Champions had a great point guard (Parker – Spurs, Billups – Pistons), all this in what’s called a “point-guard driven league”. Something that all those NBA Championship teams had in common? A loaded front court. Does this mean we really need someone special at the PG spot?
I was at this game in Auburn Hills tonight. Couple things: Sat 5 rows off the floor next to Andre Drummond's mom and Grandma who were across the aisle from us, so the family section. Paid $120 the day tix went on sale. My point is, that's is a way cheaper way to see the Raps if you can make the drive. Second point, the palace was absolutely FULL of Northern Invaders. We drowned out any and every detroit chant, defence chant, Drummond's mom who was quite vocal. And the Detroit fans, by the end were literally like "what the fuck is going on?" Where did all this people come from. It was so amazing to take over another team's building. As though we were trying to outdo the fans who rocked the Cleveland game. And to top it all off fuckin George Clinton was the halftime show! The raps players were loving it. And when the fight nearly broke out (malice at the palace 2) it would have been complete pandemonium, cause I swear it was 50/50 ratio of Raps to Pistons fans. The Johnson dunk was over Drummond and I want the poster. Nice work to any of the Republic who were at the game. Best Raps game I've ever gone to.
