DG88 brings a warm fuzzy feeling to Raptors fans everywhere:
http://raptorsrepublic.com/forums/sh...rebs-vs-RussiaThis was from a Lithuanian poster on RealGM
blocked---interesting - Russians are going over the top to compliment Valanciunas, they even gave him a gift (for being the best player in Lithuanian team) to make sure he makes into the NT, I guess.
Kirilenko says that Valanciunas is strong enough to play at this level, but lacks experience. Of course, he commented that he was not as muscular as Mozgov, but acknowledged that he is/will be a great player. Mozgov also suggested that after Valanciunas spends some time in a gym he will be nearly impossible to play against, and pointed at Jonas' speed and coordination.
One of the best Russian coaches said it bluntly that he considers Valanciunas to be one of the future top centers in the world.
And so concludes QOTW. Maybe we'll try this out again once/if the season starts but for now we'll take a break.
