    The Breakout Star: Jonas Valanciunas

    Every year, there are one or two players who stand out and leave you gushing about them to anyone who asks. This year it was Toronto's Jonas Valanciunas. Not his numbers or any particular highlights, just ... when you watched the summer Raptors, Jonas looked one or two levels above anyone else on the court. Stronger than anyone, in great shape, and still quick enough to create for himself in the post. People have been talking about his potential for the past two years, but after a year in Europe and then a decent rookie season last year, it finally makes sense.

    Sports Illustrated called him the MVP of the week, and with 22 teams playing 61 games in Vegas, he was the one guy who looked like a future superstar. One day soon, we will all have to learn how to spell "Valanciunas."

    Related: The Raptors should find a way to get rid of Rudy Gay, fake an injury to Kyle Lowry so they can tank properly next year, then luck into hometown hero Andrew Wiggins and take over the world from 2015-20.

    Right? Maybe?

    You know Masai Ujiri is tempted.

    You left out the best part from the grantland article. Right at the end before they moved on to other players...
    "Beyond Jonas Christ Superstar, there was also ..."

    How did we not come up with that?

    WoW congrats JV, i believed he deserved but i didn't believe for a second he would get it. Thought Bazemore or goudelock would get it. It seems US media go out of their way to ignore the raptors. Who votes for that one anyways ? BIG V WILL NOT BE IGNORED.

    Damn their US bias, why don't they talk about a juggernaut like the Raptors all these years.

    "Joe"-nas Valanciunas . You would think one of the NBA's top reporters would be able to pronounce his name correctly.

    LOL.

    I was talking about his game, not how he looks. LOL. He scored 33pts of the bench.
