    People should watch more Mavericks before talking about situation.

    1. It's not true that KP was better in New York. He had better counting numbers because he was playing for losing team, but he's efficiency was really bad. His efficiency is much better in Mavs.

    2. He's not a C, if he's not rim protector. He's playing as 3 in offence.

    3. Luka is playing without problems with Powell, Boban, WCS or Tobey, because they can roll.

    4. What is a point of having 7'3 guy, if he's not rim protector and he has 0 post moves?

    Carlisle wants 4 guys out with Luka in the offense but yes KP is a 7'3 shooting guard not more but he was protecting the rim and he was quite good doing it but Giannis injury made him very anxious.

    KP was phenomenal for the Mavs at times, especially in the Bubble before getting injured. Completely checked out this season. In any event, he’s no Mike Tobey…

    Look, he was disastrous in D this year. Offense with his efficiency is really not that important, especially if he's unplayable in D.

    Would slotting a 7'3" player in at SG/SF not have been the decision of Coach Rick Carlisle? Combined with first round playoff exits, would that not be reason enough to fire Carlisle right there?

    Carlisle is not guilty for KP's total physical regression and he's not guilty for disastrous trade Curry/Richardson. Clippers were clear favourites before playoffs, losing only 4:3 was more or less miracle done by Luka and in lesser extent THJ.

    Carlisle can't play KP much differently, because KP is not playing like a big. He doesn't posses skills that bigs need.

    Dončič is so good at p'n'r and if he's willing to pass he's becoming even more dangerous than trying to win it by himself (gets gassed eventually). I really looking forward how Lithuania will use Valanciunas. At offensive end he would probably collect his 15-20pts in some 24min. and we need his impact, his elite rebounding, but he will get abused at the defensive end in p'n'r situations, abused badly. I think, if Lithuania wants to control the game and to have an edge over Slovenia, we should bring as much switch all ability as possible and the help defence should be super intense and hard. If we will involve into an open offensive game with Slovenia, I think Slovenia will outscore us, even though this Lithuanian NT is also good offensive team.

    Watched on youtube Slovenia-Croatia that slovenian-american pikenrool works nicely.

    Croatia looked limited team , good news for them Bogdanovich is comming and he alone makes them alot more dangerous.

    What makes Doncic special he has 22 young body and have 35old veteran basketball mind .

    im letting Luka play 1 vs 1 and score 30pts but limit his assists numbers involving others thats the way to go with him from my eyes.

    Valanciunas and Sabonis first half job should be put that american in faul trouble to limit his minutes on the court and force Slovenia put Dimec at C.

    You can say the name “Mike Tobey.” Pretty easy, way less letters than you’re used to typing.

    American has 8 letters and Mike Tobey 9 (10 with space) - so Shawshank is pretty effective, though.

    If he would wear USA jersey i would call him Mike Tobey. With Slovenian jersey he is "american" to me.

    Fair enough. I’m gonna start calling Domas “The American” then too. Born and raised in Portland, developed at Gonzaga. Hopefully it doesn’t get too confusing with all the Americans in here.

    I'd suggest my fellow liths to stop getting their panties in a twist over this "monster" Mike Tobey which those pesky slovenians hired just to counter our NBA star studded front line lol...it's not like he's Nikola Jokic or Joel Embiid at the end of the day - he won't be a difference maker

    I've listened to his recent interviews and Domantas speaks Lithuanian very well though.
