Yes, those wasn't there when I wrote, no? Or am I so blind? :D And eff, +10 ten minutes, that's a huge difference, sorry.
Jonas Valanciunas with another big game. 21 pts, 9 rebs(4 off), 2 stl, 2 to, 4 fls, 10-13 FG, 1-2 FT, 27 EFF in 26 mins
is anyone else incredible excited to see what JV might be able to do with a consistent 35 MPG gig here in the NBA? Anybody else see the potential for a Star in him?
Video coming soon!
Check JV and 2:26. Nice catch, strong finish..... nice.
Interesting to see that Jonas played the most minutes out of anyone on his team, and took the most shots.
At least we know he'll get the needed minutes and touches if he's performing.
Lol, I love how they're playing in a high school gym.
Can't wait for him to come over. I hope he gets the hype rubio did(i doubt it)
Jonas Valaciunas with another good outing 8 pts, 13 rebs(5 off), 4/8 FG, 4 TO, 1BLK, 5 FLS +9 22:35 min
It sucks that we can't hear the question being asked thereby getting the full context.
I initially interpreted it as he has had a bunch of nagging injuries and cold/flu/sickness so he plays well for a stretch, then gets set back by the other things. So the idea of consistent effort was a result of external factors, not JV himself. I hope I am not wrong.
Maybe irgigi can offer insight?
He was up against Primoz Brezec!
The 2011 NBA offseason was unique, with free agency running concurrently with the start of training camps, which were abbreviated in order to start the season on Christmas Day. Once things settled down and general managers were able to step away from their phones for a bit, NBA.com conducted its 10th annual GM Survey.
Do the Dallas Mavericks have a shot at repeating as NBA champs, or even winning the Western Conference again? Is it time for Kevin Durant to win his first MVP award, or will LeBron James win his third? And if you were putting together an NBA franchise, which of the two is the player you'd most like to start with?
Those are just a few of the 57 questions NBA general managers responded to in our survey.
General managers were not permitted to vote for their own team or personnel. Percentages are based on the pool of respondents to each question of the survey, rather than all 30 GMs.

Hi praise. Kanter went higher in the draft but fell behind here.
Jonas has so many good things going for him. As a center with an extremely high motor and 87% free throw shooting... With the speed of the NBA game I can see him averaging as a rookie 15pts 10brds 2blks per 30 minutes
Yeah good point about the FT shooting. If he can get to the line 6-8 times a game he can really punish opposing big men. I don't expect that right out of the gate.
