Linas eating too much Pizza?
 
Or maybe he's snacking on to many Spurgos?http://gaspadine.alfa.lt/pics/patiek...716_yk2113.jpg

Two things are bound to happen in the near future...

1) Somebody is going to catch Linas out partying and the photos are going to spread like wildfire.

2) The Toronto media is finally going to be successful in breaking Linas and it will take every ounce of his willpower to just walk away.

Do the Raps practise hard enough to keep these guys in shape when they aren't getting 35-40 minutes a game??

Are Triano's drill-heavy practises a career killer for middle-of-their-career Europeans who like their pastries and beer?

Discuss.

linas eating too much pizza... :haha:

Sick, Wicked and Nasty! 12-08-2010 01:51 PM

Dumb. :facepalm:

What the crap are spurgos, and are they delicious?

gtanev 12-08-2010 01:56 PM

Linas is a baller. He could party till 3 am and still look better than Hedo did all season. As much as his play has dropped, he is still playing smart. You rarely see him force a play.

sloppi 12-08-2010 01:59 PM

you're so pathetic. :facepalm:

1.Linas doesn't go to "wild" parties.
2.He will not be broken or anything, because he already wants to get out of the nba and go back to europe. so i guess it makes it clear that he doesn't give a shit in which team he is here....plus, he doesn't read newspapers.


BARRACUDA, spurgos ARE deliciuos ;)

When did he say he wants to go back to Europe?

bjjs 12-08-2010 02:03 PM

I'm not talking about the papers, I'm talking about the post-game interviews in the locker room.

Kleiza looks like he wants to run and hide, and then we can't get away, he starts to look like he wants to knock the reporter out. And to me it seems like the reporters are slowing prodding him...poke..."So Linas sometimes the ball just isn't going, why?...bla..bla.."im an idiot reporter here to piss you off"...bla bla bla, what do you think??"..poke.

Barracuda, In Lithuania, a kind of doughnut called spurgos is widely known. Sometimes spurgos are similar to Polish doughnuts, but some specific recipes, such as cottage cheese doughnuts (varškės spurgos), were invented. (from wikipedia)

gtanew, in a lithuanian newspaper interview. you can tell how he wants to go back :)

bjjs, kleiza always talks like that :D

LX 12-08-2010 02:20 PM

The spurgos may have anti-aging benefits, so who knows - maybe he isn't eating enough.

I mean they likely come out looking just like they did going in, and that has to come with some good effects.

I'm guessing Jarrett is not missing that. Among others.

Yeah maybe he talks like that because he`s disapointed on himself now? He`s getting only 20min a game, playing poor right now.. You have to admit that in Denver and Europe he was a BEAST. I don`t know what is wrong with him, maybe he`s mad because he`s not starting 5 anymore and playing shitty minutes and don`t getting the ball too much.

BTW Spurgos are D-licious!!

x_kaptain_x 12-08-2010 02:27 PM

I don't know who would be a better fit than Derozan starting at the 2 unfortunately.. but I do think Kleiza should get the starting 3 spot back with some more minutes because Weems is absolutely "boshing" all his opportunities.

Maybe Kleiza has a slight chance of injury? Or smth else because I don`t believe that without a reason he`s geeting playing only 20min. Just pass him the ball and he score it.

sloppi 12-08-2010 02:31 PM

i can't find the recipe for spurgos in english, but i found another one for zagareliai :)

The Lithuanian Society in Sweden, Food: Zagareliai (crackers "Doughnuts"), recipe

That could be said of much of the roster. It's a team of players waiting for a pass so they won't have to make a pass, but rather try to score. And usually unless they are going against the opposing team's second unit, they will not have great success at scoring, especially without being set up by a good passing game.

At least Sonny is going to fit into a makeshift running game if nothing else. Kleiza does not fit into those plans so much, and he is otherwise stuck within dysfunctional halfcourt sets, without the ability to make them remotely functional.

Eventually the team will need to learn how to play halfcourt.... Championship teams aren't made up of teams that can't score in halfcourt sets. Sure these supposed athletes are more exciting right now, but fitting roles now and fitting roles on a team building towards something are very different agendas.

Watched Hedo play in the last Phoenix game on TV. Man, that dude is slow, laboring like a big bear. I will take Linas any day over the fat blob Hedo and his over bloated salary....:yeah:

OP13 12-08-2010 03:17 PM

He played better in Europe/Denver, because he is a team player. He fits well in a strong team, where everyone plays for winning not for stats like in Toronto... He had same stats in Denver with Melo at the SF spot and Weems in D-league. In "Nuggets" he was just a shooter, now he is about 3x better player than then, but Weems(who shoud be in D-league) plays in a Starting 5 over him?? Oh come on.....
Please trade him, or give a fucking chance.. He played thru the injury first games and had about 17ppg... When he came back healthy everyone in this team is ignoring him, Triano too. So how the fuck he can play well?
