    Nice job.

    Imagine if this guy actually turns out to be good? Raptors fans will make a full-length motion picture about him.

    Looks like a one trick pony to me =(... All he does is stand there and get put backs... Can this guy even step out and hit a 3 once in a while?


    And that's what the Bargnani Fan Boys are thinking! Me? I can't wait for this guy to get over here!

    Honestly the only knock on him is his weight, and that will increase over time anyways. For a 19 years old he's pretty tough.

    Wow. Awesome find. Can't believe they didn't show any of these clips during the draft. I think a lot fans would have been happier with the selection. The clips from the draft made him look so weak and unathletic. These made him look like a beast!

    Anyone that saw his highlights that night for the first time aren't a true fan anyways. They're likely the same ones booing guys like Lyle Overbay(ex-1B of the Jays) for no reason other than the fact he used to play here and doesn't anymore. We can always use more fans, but to boo a guy you know absolute nothing about or have never seen even a highlight of? I'd rather not have them around...

    Nice mix, that last dunk was sick. The guy is just relentless on the offensive glass.

    Im actually liking the Jonas Pick more and more. AT worst I see him being a starting quality centre in Toronto for the next decade. Id really like to fast forward one more year with another high draft pick and Jonas coming over, and us with enough cap room to sign a star point and/or wing. I like this longterm plan and I think i takes one more year to put in place but the future looks bright! There are brandon knights and kemba walkers in every draft....we will sow up another position next year.

    I do not see any good centers in the 2012 draft unless you think Salinger will be one, though he is kind of short. Looks like a SF draft and, woah, we need one of those now that the center position looks good.

    I've watched this mix a dozen times ... mostly before the draft (I watched everything I could find on anyone who may be our choice at #5), guess i'm fanatical.

    I agree with people who say that a little research from some fans would make them like this pick.

    Good to note, this isn't some U18 game - this is him pushing around grown men in the Euro League.

    Well technically this isn't the Euro league. Its the Lithuanian league (LKL) finals and they lost the series 4-1. Also, LKL isn't even a top 5 league in Europe, so their isn't much of a competition in his country. Euro League is where the tops teams from just about every league in Europe compete and it's like the Champions league of basketball if you follow soccer.

    With his team finishing as runner ups in their domestic league, they will have to compete with 15 other teams around Europe in a qualifying round for just 2 spots remaining in the Euro league.

    Lituania will face Spain and Turkey in the Eurobasket competition this summer, the older Gasol has already said he's going to play and I'm pretty sure his brother will play given the Lockout. Kanter and probably Okur will play as well so he's going to see NBA talent this summer if he makes the roster.

    This is the kind of mix you expect to see from a guy that many scouts said could've gone #1 if not for his contract. There is a reason that teams were willing to wait and were reputedly placing strong, rejected offers to acquire him. Expectations are through the roof on JV, but I'll temper those expectations by putting them at a 5 year level. When he gets some bulk, he is going to be a very, very difficult man to handle in the post.
