Man just threw down a massive one.
It'd say it's also very shortsighted from a bussiness perspective, as I don't think the nba gets more publicity at any other moment than when the American team plays with its stars at the Olympics. The 1992 dreamteam is probably the main reason that Spain has such a strong team now as that Olympic team in Barcelona had a major impact in Spain and Europe in engaging that generation. There wouldn't be two Gasols in the nba without the dreamteam.

Nice find. The pass is brilliant - just over the defender's hands, putting him in perfect vulnerable position for the poster. Only thing missing was JV riding him like a Bull ala T-Mac, way back.
mmmmm....valanciunas highlights....Pretty starved for basketball =)
Seems like Jonas almost has McGee like ability. Now, let's hope he doesn't have the McGee decision making process as well.
Walking like I'm already there.

I don't find this show boating, showing up the opposition type of display to be entertaining. That's just me. Christ, it's Iceland!
Jonas isn't to blame for showboating. He didn't pass off the board to himself.
Also, I'm cool with skepticism, but really. Finding an excuse to complain, denigrate and piss on everything Raptor related, including huge dunks that are getting play on ESPN is just over the top, to me.
Colangelo isn't the one blowing smoke on Jonas, he's had Fraschilla, Chad Ford and others gushing for 2 years.
The thing he will need to watch is the hang time on the rim. I've seen a few video clips that would get him a tech.
