    I know it seems like they let it slip , but on the other hand they were never suppose to lead at all , the way they have been playing lately .
    But also i am almost sure that i will have to eat my words regarding Klaipeda as a team .
    All credits go to Maksvytis - win against lrytas was so convincing that with McKAy arrival you just don't know what to expect .
    I would have to agree with opinion that with arrival of Butkevicius and Girdxiunas Lrytas did not become better team as expected .
    And that Klaipeda is getting better and better with each and every game .
    Game on.
    And let that be a lesson to you all. Nobody beats Zalgiris 17 times in a row.

    Neptunas' center 13 years ago. More rebounds than points

    Fair enough )

    Question

    So is Neptūnas really as competitive as they look so far this year despite all the good players, e.g. Girdžiūnas, Seibutis, Butkevičius, Želionis, the club has lost since this time last year?

    They are really good. Surprisingly good I'd say. Maksvytis does decent job. Jerai Grant is as good as never before in Neptunas. Looks so light, more versatile. Delininkaitis in decent shape after getting rid of all the injuries that bothered him previous season. Lonzo Williams also is having decent season, plays over my expectation atleast, last season in Lietkabelis he looked almost dead, thought it was big mistake to sign him as main PG, but he is delivering big time. Masiulis, Olisevicius plays good. Weaver finally shows some good atitude as he is quite talented guy, but everywhere had some behaviour issues. Galdikas is a true captain/leader, maybe it doesn't noteable on scoresheets, but he brings the team together. Only Kisielius and Dambrauskas dissapoints for now. But overall I really like this Neptunas. With such shape they can go back to finals once again

    Now that's progress. So far all i heard was "OMG 16 teams, must be difficult player" So I guess you have quotes and/or citations?

    Most of those 16 he acumulated in 00s when he migrated between NBA teams in various G-League teams. In Europe he didn't finish seasons with Israeli and Turkish teams, in both cases those teams changed lots of teams and even coach

    Nice win and comeback against Virtus. Delininkaitis looks very well at his 36 y.o. In Champions league he averages about 18 pts (60% 3pt) that is the second result in the tournament. In LKL his statystics are less impressive (10 pts), but schooting is still very good (52% 2pt, 48% 3pt, 95% ft). Good job.

    Question

    So would you say that Tomas Delininkaitis is the best PG in the LKL right now? Or merely the best Lithuanian PG in the LKL?

    He almost never plays as point guard. Best shooter? Probably

    Question

    So if Neptūnas defeats Bairoto Medi at home this comic Wednesday, does Neptūnas punch a ticket to the next round of the FIBA Champions League?

    I believe Strasbourg must win against Filou too, because Neptunas won both against Strasbourg but lost both against Filou

    Hmmmmm. It could even end up more complicated than that. I think if Neptūnas ends up tied at 8-6 with Stambulo Besiktas and/or Patrų Promitheas, Neptūnas wins the tie breaker and can finish as high as second(?). It appears though that a tie at 8-6 involving Ostendes Filou could consign Neptūnas to fifth!



    In any event, Neptūnas has to win at home, make an offering to Perkūnas and then wait as the statisticians and bureaucrats at FIBA determine their fate.

    Question

    Hmmmm. Given Klaipėda's location, the team might be better served to make sacrifices to Bangpūtys and Neringa.

    I wanted to write that we don't pray to skywalkers here on West Coast but forgot.
    We pray to Steven Adams

    I'm stumped. How is Steven Adams associated with either Klaipėda or the Neptūnas club?

    Jūratė is probably the one to whom fans of Neptūnas should pray:



    By all accounts she can be swayed by appeals from mortals, good looking young ones anyway!
