    Let's not forget, what a "great" game it was 75:123 (11–29 18–35 23–24 23–35 )...

    I think nobody knows indeed. LR claims, that his the biggest, Respublika Publishing Group says, that Vakaro inios is leading with small margin.

    D. Motiejūnas scored 21 points and grabbed 8 rebounds in 12th Nike Hoop Summit while World team beat USA 97: 89. Motiejūnas had a pretty bad shooting %, but he managed to score 12 points in 4th quarter.

    The bad thing he missed the semis of BBL challenge cup and his team lost it.

    Nice catch. Here is an interview with him before this game:

    I am very proud of my boy

    He is growing up with the right goals and right idols. Luis Scola and Tau Ceramica..

    Being a free agent this summer, Tau could very well get him, couldn't they?

    He surely has some taste here!

    Tau could get him, but It's really too soon for that. He should play for algiris next 4 years, I mean

    Does anyone knows if there are any games of Motiejunas from Lithunian league that can be downloaded from torrents, or does anyone have games that they could upload?

    There is one game of him in sport-scene.net, against Zalgiris in LKF Cup semis, btw very poor game for him. I'm afraid, you won't find anything else anywhere, cause his team's games almost wasn't broadcasted on TV, so very slim chances

    According to LNK TV, Motiejūnas' agent V. Bulotas confirmed, that his agent is going to miss 2009 draft.

    And according to his agent, he would have been among 8-16 options in the drafts. That would be a record for Lithuanian player!
    Now I'm thinking who was more promising Ilgauskas or Motiejūnas at their age. I would say Ilgauskas was more dominant already, but Motiejūnas is more universal and expected to be far better when he'll get physically stronger.

    In first 30 games of 1993-94 season Ilgauskas averaged 16,7 pt and 11,2 rb for stronger team in weaker league

    You mean second Zalgiris team, right? But the fact that next season he was 19 and already played in LKL finals is saying a lot. I don't think Motiejunas could lead Zalgiris next season. Do you agree?

    Smart guy. Donatas and his agent understand that in 2010 draft he has chances to be chosen even in first 5-7 pick.

    It is just so too soon to tell. He is a talent, all right. One of how many there was before him in Lithuania who failed?
    But I dont think it is going to be LKL next season for him. Not NBA either. Decent wage in decent EU team and hopefully he will be all right. But I am not big fan of his father being his manager. Not at all

    As for his possible failing, everything can happen, it,s life. But as for comparing him with Andruskavicius or our Korolev ( btw, Jaroslav' father f..ck up his career, at least now), Donatas seems like guy from other planet.
    As for where Donatas is possibly better to play in next season, i think best option for him would be BC Zalgiris. Yes, he can try to play in TAU or Unicaja, but i,m not sure, that he would play there more than 10-14 min. BC Zalgiris still playing in euroleague as well and i,ve no doubt that Donatas would play there no less than 20-25 minutes. And it,s exactly what he really needs before draft 2010.

    there is lot of talk about duties being paid since zalgiris 10th anniversary winning euroleague hell, zalgiris might not survive, and I dont blame myself for being pissed at this, but he will get there.
