    It's early in the season but I think it's fair to say that Kabongo isn't the best point guard at U of Texas right now. That would be J'Covan Brown.

    Default Kleiza to join L. Rytas?

    According to BTV (Baltic TV), Lietuvos Rytas might add to the roster Linas Kleiza. The Lithuanian forward is out since months due to a serious injury suffered last NBA season while he was playing with Toronto Raptors Sportando

    Give me Kabongo any day.

    I think it was Andy Katz or Seth Davis at a Texas practice talking about Kabongo's leadership and chatter non-stop. Made reference to Brown being a junior but never said a peep during practice despite there being 6 freshmen. With 2 years NCAA experience in hand, at this point in time, no doubt Brown is a better player but long term I'd take Kabongo.

    Strange, in the video at 1:44 it shows 7 points.

    Why do they always seem to show the tip off in the highlights? You ever notice that?

    both good points, I'm going to assume that the TV broadcast is incorrect in adding up the points,

    and other than sort of seeing which players were in the starting lineup I'm not too sure why they show the tip off, they seem to show the final horn too, so it is probably just a way of summarizing the game

    Yes, very early. Brown has a nice stat line right now.

    31.5 ppg, 7 apg, 5 rpg and only 1 turnover. Defenses will adjust.

    Although I've never been a big fan of PGs who score a lot. Having not watched the games, I can't say exactly how he's been playing, though.

    I'd say that's good news as it means Kleiza is close to recovered. Earlier than I thought he'd be.

    Highlights from the game yesterday.



    Check the pass at the 30 second mark.

    If you go to the L. Rytas website, they have a countdown for each next game.... pretty cool addition to the website, imo.

    Wow, so few fans in the stands. How do they make a financial go of it?

    Roommates on the road. Reasonable accommodations. Regular class airfare. A payroll of probably no more than $1.5-2M (I don't know, just guessing).

    No sign and trades, no MLE, no Birds Rights - lol.

    I can understand the logic of some Europeans opting for the packed fieldhouses and stadiums of NCAA basketball over the paychecks of Euro basketball.

    Well, to begin with this is just an ordinary game against one of the weakest teams in a Lithuanian Basketball League, weakest league where L.Rytas is competing (though it's one of the strongest country leagues in Europe, but not international). Here you go, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgKhhXGA06o usual LKL game between two strongest teams in the league, that's where the money come from. I'm not mentioning the final series or games versus other teams from abroad, Euroleague for example : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTetSz3UaTc.

    Jonas' stat lines may be be amazing, but I love how he fights down low all the time. He never stops. Once he puts some muscle on he'll be tough to contend with down there. plus imagine what he'll be like with a PG like calderon

    Have you seen some of the games over there? They're like NCAA tournament games. You have to realize there are a lot of teams and more than a couple of leagues. Just as not every college game is packed, not every basketball game in Europe is packed. This is obviously not a marquee game, so it didn't get the fans.
