    It's rare to see fundamentally sound big men keep the ball above their shoulders while in the paint. So glad Jonas already has this ingrained in him.

    Because 15 number was on the floor. He's Lithuanian center too. JV supposed to come off the bench tonight.

    Lithuania has weird rotations.

    It was protocol mistake by coach. He chose wrong number to start, he can't change that couple minutes before tip off, that's why JV and other Lithuania C started and then JV was subbed when it was possible to do so.

    Though I understand that, JV still only ever plays in 2 quarters. Every game he is played either 1st and 3rd, or 2nd and 4th. I find that a weird rotation.

    They have 6 big men, that says it all. JV will play normal minutes during Eurobasket, that's for sure.

    Raps have 6 as well (Jonas, Amir, Gray, Hansborough, Acy, Novak)....although only two of them are actually "big", lol.

    Yes but they have 3 ( twins and Motiejunas ) players who are true PF + C. I studied twins and seems most of them played C during their career. Also they have 2 true centers 15 number and JV. It's just crazy to create rotation on so many players. Anyway 2 players will be cut before Eurobasket. I feel like JV will play at least 28-30 minutes a game during championship. But who knows.

    Jonas casually destroys the opposition. Lithuania wins a beautiful first place trophy which Jonas kisses. Perfect record!

    That OKC game man o man! so many things wrong with it despite Jonas looking amazing

    Lowry got hurt
    Bagnani was being the shadow of a sloth during nap time
    Calderon couldnt do anything useful off the bench seemed to phone it in and played very un Calderon esque turning the ball over like a mad man
    Fields showing he cant make lay ups.... News about his injury surfacing
    Ed Davis still not getting minutes because of the hell or high water Bargnani thing
    Defense non existent
    Amir not really beasting yet and our best line up to begin the season was whenever we had Amir and Ed up front
    We still had to rely on DOM FUCKING MCGUIRE to do something...anything! to help the team......

    Ugh lets hope that is well behind us for this up coming season..

    He also averaging only 20.0 minutes per game. Such a treasure to have him on offence when dude makes shots like crazy.
