    I've noticed a lot of times when he posts up, he likes to faceup and pump fake, and it really gets defenders off their feet so he can blow by. Pretty effective.

    Wonderfully effective....the speed that he moves the ball from his pump fake to his hip (to start dribbling) and back again (if he elects to shoot) is very solid, especially when you consider how high his shot is released.

    He's going to be a beast. He's gonna end up with a better PPG average than DeMar on his rookie season. I bet he's gonna be a 15 and 9 guy by next season. He's our future.

    Gotta love a big man that can make his free throws. 16 of 18. Call me the Clippers commentator because "oh me oh my".

    There was a two possession stretch in the third where JV drew 4 (4!) fouls on people trying to guard him. The raps were in the bonus with over 6 minutes left. That doesn't show up in an already impressive scoresheet but it was awesome.

    Agreed.

    Last 5 games: 18.4 ppg, 9.4rpg, 2.8bpg, .615 FG%, .824 FT% ! If he were to put up these numbers next year, he'd be an all-star! In his sophomore year! Wow! I hope he does just that. I want to see him dominate in the summer, when he'll play for his national team. I think it's the European Championship this year. I'll be rooting for Lithuania like a mad man!

    As much as a fan I am of Valanciunas, he's not gonna average those numbers next season (I hope he proves me wrong, haha). I imagine him being a 13.5/9.0/2 guy next season - at least somewhere in that range. A steady, solid increase in production. However, stats aren't everything. I imagine him getting much better at defense as well.

    Finally there is hope, and his name is Jonas.

    Well, realistically speaking - yes. I agree with you. I would be extremely happy with him averaging 14/9/2 next year. He would still be a candidate for the MIP (most improved player) and it would be great! I'm just so excited about this young fella right now, that I'm losing it! If JV were to exceed those numbers, I would go completely nuts!

    Agreed. Statitistically my expectations for JV this year is 8/6. I haven't looked at the stats yet but he's probably close to that. Next year i would expect that to go up but not 18/9. Probably 14/8.

    You're pretty spot on. He's currently averaging 8.6 PTS, 6.1 REB & 1.2 BLK in 23.5 minutes. Let's hope you're as right about his second season as you were on his first.

    Don't think there's much question he'll make a big jump next year in terms of his scoring. He's been in double digits nightly for the better part of a month. With the way he shoots free throws, moving up to 14-15PPG doesn't seem unrealistic. The last elite player in Toronto (Bosh) made a big leap in year two. Most good players do. I expect Jonas will as well. We're already seeing it in the last 15 games or so.

    So basically if JV becomes as good as or better than CB4 than this team is going to be very very good. Rudy gay paired with Jonas is a very good tandem, something we've never had before. Lets just hope it all pans out, even though it never does for us raptor fans it seems.
