    I think DeMar is bona fide star in Toronto . In NBA .. And ...Toronto had their best season so far, last year ,ever . So...
    Nobody cares if he doesn't shoot three pointers as Ray Allen .
    And most of the teams in NBA do struggle to sign stars . Because there aren't that many available anyway .

    First OKC scrimmage this year. White team: Westbrook, Oladipo, Roberson, Adamas and... Sabonis?

    Possible signs showing that Sabonis will be starting ?

    Also he did well in the srimmage and proved that he is ready.

    His jumper looks good. Struggled with that all summer long (NT campaign). Due to off season workouts probably. If he develops and polishes that jumper, watch out, major threat in and outside. I think at 4 position he will be very tough to handle. He has fundamentals and strength core of a center, but is mobile enough to play 4. However, I don't think that's any signs of him starting, simply too soon to tell. I expect a lot of ups and downs for him first season. I think the main question is - can he stay with NBA power forwards defensively (and how he plays defence over all). In Olympics I think he showed some very promising signs defensively though.

    The flick from the future...

    NBA hurting our lithuanians, Raptors take Ibaka, Valančiūnas geting less minute then before, Cousins go to Pelicans ,less minute for Motiejūnas. Kuzminskas already not geting minutes, Thunder get Gibson, meaning less minute to Sabonis. Why black player favourite in nba and Europe player donnot get good rating? Black player in Europe getting respekt, but white in nba donnot?



    Not on topic, but also black rasizm exist but white rasizm donot? i donnot understand.

    Is it just me, I kinda feel violated when I go to NBA.com and they instantly throw me in to delfi/NBA

    So the season is over for Kuzminskas who finished it nicely and D-Mo who seems to be very cautious, but still showed some flashes of his best self. I have to admit I instantly become a fan of Raps when PO comes, I know I will see a heck of an intensity under the boards, JV will turn to the 5th gear, people would jump on Lawry and Derozan, it will be interesting to see how much they have grown as a players. And imagine if D-MO would had signed with Rockets, now we would watch D-Mo and Sabonis going at each other in NBA playoffs. Still great matchup OKC vs Rockets. Should be fun.

    In UK It transfers to some official ukportal for american sport games . Drives me mad because I can chose USA version in settings yet it never works .
    And let that be a lesson to you all. Nobody beats Zalgiris 17 times in a row.

    So far both lithuanian teams struggles overall.Matchup wise i believe both teams got bad ones in the first round.Both Rockets and Bucks plays fast and perimeter orientated basketball and that bad news for both Jonas and Domantas.Sabonis doesnt play and Valanciunas role is minimazed againts bucks mobile big guys, because he cant stay with them.

    I read article that saying that Jonas should get more touches inside, raptors argument was: Valanciunas deals double teams very badly and his passes becomes tournavers or close to that.
