  • Ginobili and Nocioni literally flop on every single possessions. And I'm not exaggerating it.

      JV looks a bit more agile which is good. It's interesting that LTU's Coach uses JV just like coach Casey.
      poorly, you mean?

          • This British commentator clearly has no clue how the game of basketball is players. Couldn't they at least get someone who knows a little about the sport?

                    • What the fuck happened to JV? He can't handle double teams. That Olympic village life is fun, I guess.

                        That's a surprising sentiment. I haven't seen any particular struggles from JV when double teamed, especially considering how rarely he's been posted up. In the first Q I recall one, but he delivered a great pass to a cutting Sabonis who screwed up the layup.

                          They've been pronouncing other valen-see-unis all tournament-who knows, maybe that's closer to the Lithuanian pronunciation and valen-chew-nas is just what North American announcers use because it's easier?

                            Watch every game. He looks lost. He doesn't know what to do when he gets the ball in the post or near three point line. He's struggling on both ends of the floor. + Why the hell he got into verbal fight with Lithuania's coach when he tried to take him out? Some is wrong with our guy. In my opinion, Lithuania looked much better with JV on the bench. Although that lineup with Knicks rook at 4, Jonas at 5 and other Jonas at 3 is killer defensively.

                            Olympics stats so far:

                            7.3 PTS, 6 REB, 1 AST, 3 TO, 1.3 BLK, +/- 1

                              he has taken 15 shots in 3 games.

                              If you watched the games you should be able to see that lithuania is basically using him to screen and rarely passing to him at all. They're making the raptors look like a post-centric team.

                              And, once again, Luis Scola continues to be a dominant force in FIBA. Chill the fuck out.

                                I watched every Lithuania w/ JV game since July. It's very obvious to me that Lithuania's coach has a policy - NO FUCKBOYS ALLOWED.
