    I think we can all agree that we're seeing some flashes of what's to be of Valanciunas in the future. As the time goes on and he adds strength / post moves etc., he should become more consistent with his beastly numbers. I'm hoping he's going to start stuffing those stat sheets on a daily basis in a couple years.

    No doubt in my mind that he will. He's already looking way better than a lot of other Centers in their rookie seasons.

    it's been a while since I've seen a shot blocker who retains possession of the ball so often. Was just thinking this as i watched Howard swat balls out of bounds with glee.

    This dude has insane length tho. He barely even jumps when he's blocking these shots

    I don't think so. If he did then they wouldn't have let him play in OT

    Its hard to guage that since he did clutch his surgically repaired hand in pain after the hit and it could have felt fine afterwards to continue.

    He was outstanding last night. Just a sign of things to come. He really is going to be special. I love his attitude too. I love this kid

    His attitude is really something special. There are many things that make a good player. Attitude is one, and this can be divided into motor, work ethic, and character. He has really special levels of all 3 for a pro athlete. And his talent, both in terms physical ability, and skill level, is at a really high level. It's a bright future when he puts it all together.

    I don't know about anyone else but I just let out a sigh of relief:

    Holly MacKenzie ‏@stackmack

    Asked JV how hand was feeling. He gave a fist bump in response. Me: "What a non-call that was." JV wryly: "What? There was no foul."

    thanks that is what I wanted to hear. Great attitude with his answer, shows he is unbothered by it or the foul.

    JV is a boss. I cant wait for him to blossom and to turn me into one of those crazed super-fans who would go nuts for anything JV related.

    Great news. And what a great guy, doesn't even think he was fouled. Wonder if he's seen the replay.

    I think his english is getting good enough to incorporate sarcasm.

    Bright future indeed. And I for one think the kid is very underrated offensively. I remember that game earlier this season against the spurs when he was holding his own ground against Tim Duncan. He just doesn't get any calls which is understandable given he is still a rookie.

    I agree, especially because his scoring doesn't depend at all on athleticism. He could be a very effective player for a long long time. His moves are not that far from being polished...more a matter of reps than remodeling any of them.

    I was actually pleasantly surprised with his long ranged shots yesterday. He developed that quickly, like, really. Would wish to see more moves with his back though.

    Well it was just one game, but his form is really sound. It's why he's a good FT shooter too. The back to the basket will take time because strength is important there.
