That mix is not suppose to prove anything about him being good. You said he is not mobile, so I think you are absolutely nuts!

Like I said, I saw the game yesterday and aside from him being able to run the floor, his movements and the way he stumbles to the ground makes him look immobile.

That's your opinion not a fact, i think i saw little more of him playing than you and I think he has all the mobility in the world. (again opinion not a fact)

He's mobile but he doesn't really know what he's doing. He has small hands and can't always catch the ball. He doesn't have heart or anything that comes with it......

I guess you can see where I'm going with this.

Drops 25 in a game with no D, no plays, no tall opposition = Dirk Nowitzki.

Drop 25 in 3 regular season NBA games in a row, then we'll talk. Oh by the way, if you need a nickname for the guy it's Donut Ass

Why are people so harsh, if the guy is good he's good. Can he not be good?

In last night's game he dropped:

1 pt (0-5 shooting), 4 reb, 4 TOs, 4 fouls

Clearly, we're talking about a work in progress sort of player here. Too early to make a decision either way on this guy.

I'm trying to understand the hostility here.

The guy is obviously skilled and it's his first go-around with NBA level competition. He looks like at the minimum he could be a rotation guy and at least have a nice career (if he wants to stay here that is).

As for the SL crap I'm reading, in Dirk's second or third year (can't remember) he tore it up and it served to a precursor to what he would accomplish during the season. Peja too. Anthony Morrow had an impressive SL a few years ago and he's turned it into a nice career. SL serves a purpose and simply dismissing results here is short sighted and ridiculous.

This is a chance for a lot of guys to show they can play the game at a high level. Once they hit training camp or pre-season they can maybe take that next step.

I think it's just a call for some sanity on this board. We tend to overrate guys based on performances like Donatas' game against us. Anytime you use a phrase like "compared to Dirk" you're inviting criticism. The main thing is that it was just one game.

Let's not forget events like this (first story):

19 pts (7-11 FG 0-2 3PT 5-6 FT) 6 rebounds (3 Off) 1 block 1 TO vs Kings

20 PTs (10-16 FG 0-1 3PT 0-0 FT) 12 rebounds (7 Off) 1 block 1 steal 2 TO vs Blazers

Didn't play in the last game. So he's been really consistent so far in the summer league other than against Wiz which everyone here was blowing up. I'm really looking forward to seeing how he does in the regular season. I think he's going to have a big year, especially with Scola out of the picture.

Mods please move this to the NBA section.

Edit: They don't really have any good C either.

not really sure why this guy gets his own thread over any other potential good player that the Raptors could have drafted in recent years
