    For all the talk of working with Hakeem, working with Sabonis is nothing to scoff at either. Sabonis mentioned in the game interview he would be working with him this summer with national team.

    No questioning Sabonis' greatness. The fact that he has been working with the national team in the past suggests that he has teaching skills as well. Don't know about Hakeem. Not everyone can translate what they do (or did during their playing career) into transferable nuggets of knowledge. No reason JV couldn't spend time with both.

    JV has already surpassed prime Sabonis in at least one category - English language.

    http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/features/rumors looks like Cavs are regretting going with Thompson over JV. The coach says he backs the pick of Thompson but to bring JVs name up to me, means someone up high wished they went with big JV.

    Tristan Thompson is already a much better than average defender and has shown something other than just dunks in the past few games. He was a 3-5 years project when he was drafted. His offensive production has gone down since he started wearing his not-as-cool-as-Kyrie's-mask.

    I like JV but I think the people who rate the players in the Quick Reaction capsules are fooling themselves by mostly giving Jonas a B or better after almost every game. Sure he hustles but he also males many mistakes. I think the
