    Default Jonas Valanciunas appreciation thread

    This is to grieve (or celebrate) for one of the best teammates we've ever had. Loyal soldier, funny, productive as fuck.

    He'll always be our Lithuanian Lighting and adopted Canadian. Cant wait till your standing O. Good luck in Memphis.

    I'm really hoping this deal proves not to be a mistake. I have... a lack of confidence in that being the case.

    Either way, though, best of luck to all three guys traded to MEM.

    I can remember tuning in to watch his games overseas after we drafted him but he couldn't come for a year. One of my favorite all time raptors. Always just went about his business/ Best of luck in Memphis JV!!

    Guy always played hard and never complained. Seemed like a good teammate. He also played some good playoff ball for them when other had letdowns. Good luck to JV. I think he'll do well with Conley in Memphis.

    Nothing but respect for the big fella. Class act all the way. I think he is going to do well in Memphis. He went through years of not being used well by Casey. This year he was a +/- montster. Do well, except when you play against Toronto.

    Gonna miss JV a whole lot. Did everything that was expected of him. Never heard a murmur when he was nailed to the bench with casey or sent to second unit here. Always 110% and got better every year.

    He will excel in Memphis so will the team.

    Cheers to Wright also I loved his game. His herky jerky and1 style play will be missed. He will excel too with a steady role.

    I have been a big JV supporter as both a player and a person. Excellent teammate, 100% effort, never complains, no drama.
    Do well in MEM JV, you'll like the weather better and check out the music scene lol
    It will be an awesome standing O for you the first time back.
