        • Remind me again why we're caring about an international basketball tournament in relation to the 2016-17 nba toronto raptors? This isn't some rookie with our first glimpse we've watched this guy play almost 300 basketball games.

            Nothing else going on. Boredom often leads to complaints. I guess he hasn't played well. I haven't watched tho.

            • Not at all concerned by JV's poor showing in international play, but what I find potentially concerning are comments which make it sound like he isn't focused on basketball. Brings his maturity and dedication to the game into question.

                Reading too much into it. The coach is trying to cover his ass because he deserves to be fired for the team's showing. Trying to deflect blame to JV because he's their biggest talent and had a shit tourney. Never has anything even remotely negative been said about his work ethic before this. Every story on the topic before has been about how hard he works and how badly he wants to win.

                  I really like LIT's coach.. made some mistakes this year, gave way too much freedom to Kalnet but he's still one of the best coaches in Europe imo. Reminds me of Pop.

                  By the way, Jonas confirmed that he 'wasn't himself' at this tournament.

                    Jonas' comments could also just be the equivalent of 'no excuses'.

                      Yeah yeah possible, but meh. I already knew something was not right with Jonas since that game against Brazil. His body language signs were obvious.

                      We're lucky he's going trough some shit right now, not in the middle of the season!

                        Yeah that's fine. Jonas wasne himself....but that's not what the coach seemed to be saying. Seemed to be equating him to a Jailblazers or stephon Marbury level of maturity and dedication. That is totally nonsense and classic deflecting of blame.

                          Fair enough. LIT's coach went too far. You don't throw your player under the bus who took full responsibility for team's performance. I agree.




                          I always said that Jonas needs to take some time from the NT. Not only cuz he needs a proper vacation w/ his mates and family, but additional work on his weaknesses would set him up for better NBA season. We can only guess what the fuck actually happened, but maybe he wasn't really into the national team this year cuz of tiredness. JV had a long season and little rest time. And about that comment from JV about his head.. Going through some mental problems will only make him a better player.

                          • Yeah burn out happens, especially coming off a very long NBA season. Definitely seen bad summers in the past from other guys who frequently play for their NTs.

                              Like who? JV is 24 and was injured for half of our playoff run. I think he just had a hard time adjusting to the extra attention he received from other defences.
