    If only our "best" players could score with that much efficiency!

    I hope DC is watching and that JV becomes a focal point of the team's offense this season, as opposed to being an afterthought.

    During Summer League, Casey did state Jonas will be a focal point (not necessarily the focal point). Let's see if he's a man of his word.

    Running our offense through the C is an approach I really like/hope to look forward too. Kind of a Grizzlies-type approach.

    I like to stress, 21 points with 7 shots.. in 20 minutes

    Remember that first half he had in summer league where we thought he was going to score 40? His first quarter 16 points made him look like he was going for 60. Then he wasnt played for all the 2nd and 4th quarters. In the 3rd quarter he didnt get the ball until 5 minutes left. In the last 5 minutes, he was passed the ball in the post 3 times. twice he did a simple drop step for a dominate dunk and the third he was fouled for 1/2 FT. Had they just only fed him the ball in the post, JV was ready to drop 60+.

    I think whats so wicked about JV is that he is showing he can handle a higher usage. His FG% is always so damn high, you'd think he should be taking more shots!

    I really think Jonas' has the potential to be the best offensive center in the league.

    With his new girth, I think he can punish most centers in the league. And thats without mentioning his jumpshot, quickness, and soft touch. JV has yet to show how he will handle being double teamed, but in summer league he showed ready to play quarter back in the post, which gives our team a new dynamic. Anyways it shouldnt be much of a problem with Rudy Gay also demanding to be double teamed.

    I think usage is still going to be an issue with JV next season.. with DD/Gay/Lowry all taking a lot of shots there won't be much left for JV. Hopefully the coach makes JV the #2 option after Gay and leave DD/Lowry scrambling for 3rd.

    The way I see it Gay/DD will take turns.. Lowry will want his and JV will end up getting scraps (put backs on offensive rebounds and the odd pass when Gay/Lowry don't feel like shooting).

    I'm hoping DD/Gay/Lowry are all gone, or at the very least Gay/Lowry, for valuable assets and JV is the #1 (or #2) option!
