Smile Sonny Weems hits game winner in his last game in Europe [VIDEO]

Interestingly enough, the article dubs him The "Returning Raptor"

Quote:
Think Žalgiris Kaunas fans are going to miss their locked-out NBA stud? The Greens were able to stay alive in Euroleague play last night, rising their record to 2-5 in besting Unicaja Malaga in Lithuania, 67-65, thanks in no small part to some clutch play from Sonny Weems.

Weems accounted for the final points of the match, blowing past the defenseless Hrvoje Peric for the baseline jam and his game-high 17th and 18th points with about 55 seconds left on the game clock; Weems missed the and-one free throw, but no matter. Žalgiris notched the key win when Kristaps Valters missed field goals on consecutive possessions.


The returning Toronto Raptor finishes his term with Žalgiris having amassed 17.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 1.4 steals in seven Euroleague games; 10.8 points and a team-high 6.3 boards per in six VTB United League matches; and a line of 10.2 ppg, 6.0 rbg and 2.0 steals in five LKL games.

Though tempting to wonder if Vladimir Romanov & Co. will retire Weems’ jersey, BiE suspects Žalgiris club officials have a tad longer sense of history than their counterparts at Beşiktaş…

stop hating on Weems. He's second only to Jonas. If they were both on the same team, it would be better than Shaq and Kobe. They'd win 3 Euroleague titles in 1 year.

I don't hate Weems. But I don't like than he is overrating like "Euro Kobe". ;/
Jonas not ready for NBA. First season I think he will be on the bench. If Raptors don't trade him.

RealGM: Do you keep in touch with guys from Toronto?

Weems: Always. I’m going back there next year. They are my friends so I have to keep in touch with them.

you are really out of touch with Euro basketball. Jonas will be the first rookie MVP since Wes Unseld and Wilt. And Weems will be All NBA. Guaranteed. You'll see it next year.
If Raptors can sign both of them, and no injuries, they'll beat Bulls 72 game record at some point. No need to sign anyone else.
And you say Weems is not like Europe's Kobe? That's just funny. Weems is better.
