When I see that span and length he reminds me of Ewing back in his Georgetown days.

If this kid hits his potential, he's going to absolutely CLEAN up with endorsements. He's a very nice looking guy. SO MANY brands will want his face on their ads.

good point.

i absolutely hate the celebrity, hype, commercialism etc, etc of modern sport BUT in terms of raising our profile and getting Val calls (and non-calls in his favour of course!) it could be beneficial.

great post Keet. part of the game I wish more people acknowledged.

He should bulk up to 325-350 and become the next Shaq

Wtf... hopefully he will be ready for training camp.

Raptorman 09-23-2012 09:12 PM

That picture was taken by the guys sitting in front of me at the UFC fights. They were trying to figure out who to send it to. Sux.

Ha can't imagine JV at that weight...what was Shaq 's unofficial playing weight - 400ish? At his heaviest over 450?

With training camp still a week away, prized Raptors prospect Jonas Valanciunas has injured his left foot.

While the team said a full update likely wouldn't be coming until Monday, Valanciunas does not appear to be seriously injured, though he was photographed in a walking boot outside the ACC this weekend.

Valanciunas, like most basketball players, has had minor ankle issues in the past and walking boots are known to speed up recovery from minor sprains and strains.

He was not using crutches and was putting weight on the foot, both positive signs.
