          • Valanciunas' backup center, Predrag Samardziski, is out for 4weeks with a sprained ankle and JV is the only true center left in the line-up, so we'll see extended playing time by JV. This is a good time to watch how he'll control his fouls, one of his major weakneses in the past

                Boxscore from this game.

                Video from this game:





                JV already has 80% (percentage made up by me, but a strong majority is my meaning) of post players in the NBA beat in one area of his game: he can go left in the post. See 2:35 of the video: he drop stepped to the left baseline.

                • Not just because of this comment, but Alex Kennedy for me is the best and most trusted contributor at HoopsWorld.com. I find many of their contributors who offer rumours are full of poop *yes, I'm looking at you Ingram*. Anyways:

                  What do you think of Jonas Valanciunas? Is he the favorite to win ROY next season?

                  I’m a huge fan of Jonas Valanciunas. If it weren’t for his contract situation, he likely would’ve been picked even higher in last year’s draft. By drafting him fifth overall, the Raptors got a steal. Scouts rave about him and say that he has the potential to be an elite player. I’m really looking forward to seeing him in the NBA and it’s possible that he could win Rookie of the Year next season. He’ll definitely have the opportunity to play right away, which means he’ll have a shot.

                    Yes he is. He's skinnier than Ed Davis

                        Thomas is a skinny fat man. His skin just hangs off him. His build reminds me of a clip from FashionTelevision.

                        I wouldn't classify JV as skinny anymore. Pictures and video of him last year to now are showing significant gains in size, in my opinion. Also, while I agree he is thin, he does have noticeable muscle. His frame is very promising with very broad shoulders.

                          • Well yes, actually I believe he will look like Chandler after 3/4 years:

                            I would say it's pretty similar:

                                I think Chandler is a fair comparison. I think that size would allow him to retain the characteristics of his game that make him such an intriguing prospect.

                                This is the pic of Jonas you posted. It is from last year last year I believe.
