Yes, nice indeed. Can someone explain to me the "Efficiency per game"? I don't get that.
On a sidenote, when he was drafted I thought JV would need another year over there but he has really impressed. The numbers are good, the numbers against ex-NBA players are good, the skill set is good. To me though, the eye test is huge: he looks a lot, a lot better than he did even 8 or 9 months ago. That's really important to see with a player in his age range. Plus, not sure if it's just deceptive on video or not but he looks much bigger than he did in June at the draft.

Well, all I hear is that he's working hard on building muscle. He's got a really nice frame to fill out. He himself has stated time and again that he wants to look like Dwight Howard. He is working hard towards that goal and lately his body's been getting stronger so fast that it kind of makes me wonder if he won't reach Dwight's strength within 2-3 years from now. He obviously uses Howard for his motivation. Jonas wants to destroy Howard one day. Can't wait for that to happen.
