I was delighted that we selected JV last year.

He has excelled at junior level with Lithuania, winning the U16, U18 and U19 Championships, and being named MVP in all three.

At senior level he has also shone, winning the League and Cup double in 2010 with Rytas; and last year being named Lithuanian Player of the Year, and European Young Player of the Year.

I'm sure that he will have a very successful NBA career.

It looks like we'll be picking in the Top 5 again this year, and what we need to do is draft someone to play alongside him, preferably a Guard. Thus with 2 young Top 5 picks in place, we can start to build a Championship contender.

Never draft by need, that's a cardinal sin. Always draft the best player available.

That's a really weird pic. He looks sickly and ripped at the same time.

Valanciunas' "old man with a cane" get-up was actually a Gandalf costume, if for no other reason than I like to imagine him hedging to hem up a point guard on a pick-and-roll and screaming, "YOU SHALL NOT PASS!"
Awesome

I think we should all tone down our JV excitement, you guys are just setting yourselves up for disappointment, and that will lead to a lot of JV hate.

The kid may not be amazing right away, or ever, maybe we should just understand that a decent young prospect is coming, who may develop into a star. He may also be average. Starting talk of building a contender is a bit of a stretch at this point.

What do you mean ?

Internationally, he's already the ONLY player to win all 3 FIBA Under age tournaments (U16, U18, U19) and be MVP in all 3 tournaments. He's now broken into the senior team, and hopefully will lead them to success in the Olympic Qualifying tournament in July.

At club level, he has already won Championships and Cups with Lietuvos Rytas; whilst individually winning the Lithuanian Player of the Year award, and the European Young Player of the Year award. And on a lighter note, he has been the MVP of the last 2 All-Star games ............. not bad for someone who is still a teenager.

He's already won more medals and awards than most players do in a career.

This fanbase is rarely optomistic or positive about players. Let's enjoy it while we can.

I don't care about being disappointed - at least for a while we are feeling really good about someone coming to play here.

And the sense of humour is obviously something to cheer about.

JV plays 110% so even if he is not that great at first I think fans will like him, because he is always fighting to help the team

We are definitely going to have the best looking front court in the league!

That is, of course, unless we luck into drafting The Unibrow and he is averse to plucking, but if that happens, who cares about looks!
