    You can use basketball-reference.com and run a query. Jonas is 5th all-time for TS% for rookies who played at least 50 games, which is pretty awesome:

    BBR has stats that go back to the 70's.
    Notice JV beat out Sabonis by 0.2%. He'll have that to bring back with him over some Vodka shots (do Lithuanians drink Vodka like Polish/Russian people do?).

    If the Russian gymnast I dated was a good example, nobody drinks vodka like Russians!

    It's always the women who are a bad influence, eh? Haha
    My girlfriend is Polish, and so I was in Poland last month visiting her family ... and let me tell you ... they should hold a "Drink-Off" to determine who holds it best ... because they can drink an incredible amount of Vodka. Her Uncle made his own Potato Moonshine ... was ruthless and horrible ... and amazing. Lol

    lol, okay, so maybe it's a dead heat between Poles and Russians,,,,,,,,,, and I've been running with that "female bad influence" line for years, but only my closest buddies buy it........ I don't know why?

    No GM is going to trade 1st overall pick next year, if Wiggins live up to his potential in college without injuries. No GM...if our 1st rd pick would be in top 3 ( Parker!? ) then I better have JV + Parker than Wiggins tbh. So it really depends what pick we'll be having next year..

    Would be painful to see JV leave, but in the same I would be jumping from joy coz we get Wiggins

    Older generation lived with russians and they drink like russians, huge ammounts and don't get drunk fast, strange phenomena.
    this wouldn't exist if not the fact I mentioned:

    this one is very old, 70's I suppose. Anti drinking ad, just because vodka was too much of a problem back then.

    The problem with that list is that Hasheem Thabeet is in top20.

    Just like any stat, some interpretation is required.
    When you look at Minutes Played, Total Points and Field Goals attempted (all things that are affected by TS%), you will notice that JV is either Double or Triple that of what Thabeet contributed. So while there's no taking away from Thabeet the fact that he is Top-20; JV is Top-5 and accomplished that at a much more impressive rate, with a much wider opportunity to fail.

    It's a bandwidth thing. The site is down at least once a month, either for updates or because the bandwidth has exceeded it's limit. Apparently being an ESPN affiliate doesn't line RR staff's pockets with gold nuggets.

    Knowing ESPN, we're probably on the lowest rung of supply..

    @WolstatSun: Casey said development of Valanciunas will change offence quite a bit. Far more of focus. Not only just score out of low post to quarterback

    Hope JV can out let pass like Tim Duncan someday would make for awesome easy buckets. Also Im a fan of more interior plays, no reason not to when we have Rudy, DeMar and JV able to abuse their respective positions down low.

    DeMar actually showed some great post-up game last year. If he spent more time operating out of the block, he would've been a very efficient player.

    Honestly, I would have no problem with DeMar if he never attempted a 3 pointer again in his career....as long as he made a concentrated effort to post up often.
