even without the beard!
Part 2 of JV's Centered story is up! (Or I should say parts 5 through 8). My morning just got so much better.
Great JV mix from 2011/2012 season.
I don't think we'll ever see a big man with Hakeem-like footwork. That guy had feet that could rival Michael Jackson's ;)
That was a great highlight package, but I just hope we're not expecting too much from this kid. We have to remind ourselves that Jonas will struggle at times next season. He'll airball shots, he'll pickup silly fouls, he'll get dunked on, he'll get out-muscled for position, etc., but it's all part of the learning process.
One thing I noticed is that he might have to adjust his timing on offensive rebounds in the NBA. A lot of those highlights looked like offensive basket interference.
Not sure if this has been discussed, but any chance Aleksandar Džikić (head coach for Rytas now) comes over as an Assistant next year? Would be GREAT for JV and seems like he's pretty good at his job.
I'm not overly impressed with him as a coach either. I've seen some pretty ridiculous things from him this season. Maybe that was just random, dunno. But I definitely think he's not an NBA caliber coach.
Dwane Casey loves him.
He used to have him on his staff while coaching the Timberwolves.
So here's a question.
Do you guys see Jonas coming into the 2012-2013 season as a starter? Or will they bring him off the bench, until he can adjust to the differences between the NBA and Euroball?
Not sure on the extent of how Jonas can prepare for those NBA-adjustments without being in the NBA.
As the roster is right now. He would be the best Center on the team. I think they might pull the same thing they did with DeMar plays the first 8 minutes of every half. If he play well he stays on if not take him out.
3 years ago... To all JV haters saying that he's too lanky, he IS growing!
His shoulders are what really bulked up, Im excited to see where the limit is to his physique, Im imagining him filling out similar to D12 (might just be a pipe dream. but you cant blame a man for dreaming!)
yeah lets hope he transforms into something
