Kleiza has been playing great recently hasn't he? I think he's going to try to prove something at the Olympics. I predict many 20+ point games from him.

Yi Jianlian is probably going to go bananas too.

None of the players on that list are 'under the radar.' Nene? Jose? Ben Gordon?...

But yes, I do hope Shved steps up for the Russians. He did pretty well in the Euros, would be nice for him to get some exposure.

I'm seriously jealous to Russia, Shved is awesome! I think he will have immediate impact in the nba

Yeah, combo guard. Great scorer, quick enough to get to the rim with ease, and a very good passer. Skinny as hell, though, so I don't see him contributing right away, but who knows. He has some Ginobili in him, so he's definitely worth picking up and waiting on for at least a few years. Would be nice if we could snatch him from the Wolves somehow.

As for JC, I will enjoy watching him succeed. People in Toronto show this guy very little respect, I really hope he does well with Spain, then I hope he leaves Toronto to play on a better team in the NBA.

For those doubting his need to "breakout", well he still hasn't on this messageboard judging from all the incredibly inaccurate posts I read about him on here all the time.


I shall be rooting for Spain to win it all. After all the football doubters, it'd be only right for basketball ones to be wrong as well.

That's because the whole team is built around him. He was doing the same in 2010. That's why Raptors signed him in the first place, I think.

wow, clearly you know so much about international basketball. I stayed up late watching that game in 08. You don't think had Spain had 2 fully healthy PGs they would've made the game close? Oh, if only you weren't so awesome and if only everyone was as awesome as you.
