    Mysterious omission of Val being selected by the Raptors 4th overall in the 2011 NBA draft and him coming to the NBA next season.

    I think that is kinda of a big deal to not to have mention it considering they mentioned everything else about him.

    I agree that it was a little weird that they decided to omit that part. I'm really excited about next year though. If only we could get a veteran big to show him the ropes/be a mentor for him

    We chose 5th overall actually. (4th was tristan to cavs, freeing up val!)

    Talking about his being drafted as yet another achievement would be admitting NBA is a clear improvement over Euro hoops. And this is the official Eurocup website...

    "Valanciunas entered the quarterfinals leading his team in performance index rating (15.9 per game), ranked second in the competition in rebounding (7.8 rpg.) and fourth in blocked shots (1.6 bpg.). And when the games got tougher, so did Valanciunas as he raised his production in every major category in the Last 16 to rank second in the Eurocup in index (19.7)and first in both rebounding (9.3 rpg.) and blocks (1.8 bpg.). And in Game 1 of the quarterfinals: 14 points, 10 rebounds, 2 blocks and a 23 index!"

    this is my favourite quote of the whole article and it was in the second paragraph. bc chose wisely

    I am starting to get worried by how much I am looking forward to this. He could be a great pick. (touch wood, touch wood, touch wood)
