    Nice article in the Athletic about Valanciunas.

    "To Jonas Valanciunas, rebounding is not complicated. It’s just what he does. So when he was asked to explain why he’s so good at it, well, he gave a simple answer.

    “Effort! Effort! Effort!”

    It’s not that simple, of course, even if Valanciunas certainly makes it appear that way. The 7-foot-0 Lithuanian is putting up impressive numbers on the glass of late, including a recent two-game stretch against the Kings and the Lakers in which he set a new team record by pulling down a combined 44 rebounds. Anytime you can wipe Grizzlies legend Zach Randolph out of the record books, you’ve done something very special."

    For real, though. There are waaaay more important things to support in this world, but if somebody started a GoFundMe page to get JV his ring, I wouldn’t be upset. Lol.

    I mean, couldn’t that cheap-ass MLSE board just get a fake ring off AliExpress, just for the symbolic gesture of giving JV his ring.

    Whoa, Clippers picked up Reggie Jackson for nothing? Dang, I knew they'd be able to beef up their depth around Kawhi on the buyout market.
    They're 10-0 with both Kawhi and PG in the lineup. If they can somehow stay healthy through the playoff grind, it's a Bucks/Clippers final.

    JV and the Griz take down the Lake show tonight. JV with 22pts, 20reb. It was a back to back and he had 25 rebounds yesterday. 45 rebounds in two days. Griz commentators were saying that’s a franchise record. Nice to see him getting nice burn and playing very well in the late stages of the game.

    (also Dillon Brooks looked great and had 24pts)
    That game was WITH lebron and Davis. Pretty impressive.
    And at 105-88, it wasn't even close, hope the Grizz make the post season.

    They did.
    112-103.
    No PG though
    Is Paul George very often PG these days?

    Kawhi can't carry Clips on his own. Looks like they will be dropping one to the Kings at home.

    In Webber’s defense being a power forward in the western conference in the 90’s and 2000’s really limited your chances of being an all star. Initially it was Barkley and Malone and then it evolved to Garnett, Duncan, Nowitski. I mean those are some amazing Hall of Famers in front of you. I think that has to be considered
    Ya agreed Webber will get forgotten in history as his prime over lapped with 2/3 best PF ever and 3 HOFers. Still think his talent level is pretty similar to bosh, who will also get overlooked going in the Dwade,Bron, Melo draft. then playing 3rd fiddle for those guys later.
