    Also found the original photo



    It seems that the workouts between the day the ''beer belly picture'' was taken and the drew league game, have really done wonders for the fat, bloating.

    JV actual advantage should be strength not quickness. Every Center enters the league under weight and takes years to develop strength. Even skinny JV would be slow compared to Noel but fat JV should be able to push him around. If JV is expected to play against Drummond and Cousins he needs to be able to hold his ground on rebounds.

    I did a quick google search. Is "who will have the better career, jonas or donatas" a real argument...

    Or am I just a terrible homer

    and his rebound numbers did improve in his second year.

    I think they're both young, rising stars. They play different positions but, they're both frontcourt guys so; I think they feed off of each other. I believe they've been on the national team since their U17 days. Comparing them would be like comparing the (two older) Gasol brothers.

    I think Jonas is perhaps better-situated in that he's the 3rd or 2nd option & he plays in the East. Montiejunas plays for the Rockets who have 3 other PFs. Not to mention Beverley, Harden & Howard who all demand the ball. That's not even to touch on the upheaval of Lin, Asik & Parson's departure. I'm not sure who will have the better career but, for now, Valanciunas' situation seem to be more conducive to success.

    I don't know. It seems like a good way to cooperate among franchises to make sure guys always have a high quality facility available. I wouldn't be surprised if generally any NBA player is given access to a team's facility if they want it.

    But his size won't tell you that. We won't know that until he steps on a court and we get to see him move.

    It does no good to freak out every time a picture pops up where he looks a little bloated....that's already happened twice this year, and both times it's seemed to be more because of the pic than because of his girth.

    to whoever said working out in another team's facility was odd...

    they get the full use of any NBA training facility as part of being under an NBA contract. Provided the host team is not using it

    JV is awesome, finding out about the "fat" ridiculousness and posting a rebuttal photo.
