Donatas Motiejunas (Compared to Dirk last year) burns Raptors
 

25 points 9 rebounds.

Damn, he looks really impressive. I can't believe how well Rockets continue to draft with late draft picks.

This guy was projected much higher but his European contract scared teams away same as Jonas last year. It's a easy pick if your willing to wait which both the raptors and rockets did

They didn't draft him. They traded for his rights. And he did it over Daniel Orton. Solomon Alabi could go 22 and 8 over Orton. He averaged 14.2 and 7.6 playing in Poland last year! He didn't even play in his native Lithuanian league and couldn't make their national team.

Watch the video, pretty impressive play regardless of it being summer league. Showed nice D, rebounding and sweet offensive game.

+1. The scouting report is that Donatas has mad talent, but not heart or consistency.

Hey if Terrence Ross can score 22 a game then good for us, too!

I hate to repeat myself like 50th time, but i fucking told you so! he has a lot of skill!

Dark Knight 07-14-2012 10:13 PM

Let's see how he does against some real competition before we start declaring him better than Andrea, people. :p

Joey Graham used to tear it up in summer league.


Nuff said.....

Dirk my ass, this guy doesn't look mobile at all. You should've seen how many times he stumbled onto the floor.

Yes, that was his problem, but it seems like he fixed it. He was his teams leader last year consistently playing very very well. He also repeated Euroleagues all time rebounding record..

Calm down, he's only 21. He has a ton of talent and his offensive game is really impressive for a 7 footer.

LOG 07-14-2012 10:47 PM

There will be no other Dirk, but i wouldn't be surprised if he ends up being better than Bargs

Blaze 07-14-2012 10:57 PM

Whether he's a bust or not one thing is for sure, his jumper is very quick and nice looking for a big man.

Typical RaptorsForumers:

"BC should be fired for drafting Jonas instead for this guy!"

No I think Jonas is much better pick.. :dancing:

Kirby 07-14-2012 11:25 PM

I could give you a Darko mix and make him look like he's worth something too.
Boy, that mix sure sold me! :cookie:
