Look. your source is, well this, you just post it. You just read.
My source is my eyes. Also, i try to interact as much as possible.

First, Donatas is not IN EUROLEAGUE He is not playing in Euroleague man. I know he averages only 0.5 block per game, but he had only 1 or 2 blocks last year (total, not average). He improved, from 0 shot blocker to 0.5 shot blocker.
Second. Averages are not very reliable source. Europe leagues has clear leaders and bottomfeeders. I followed a lot of his big-games, and he finished with 7 rebounds almost every single time. Last year, he had 3-4 rebounds against tough matchups at best. He improved his rebounding a lot. He was terrible rebounder, now he is average rebounder, not great, but all-right.

One thing about his mentality. A lot of players a know, tries to improved their strong sides. Like - I am a shooter, and I trying to became even better shooter... I hate play defense, because I am bad on it, and I don't wanna work on it...
Donatas thinks opposite. He improves his weaknesses.
A lot of young players dreams about Euroleague final four or NBA all-stars, but in fact, they have no clue how to reach it.
Donatas knows it. He do everything slowly, step by step.


Yes, it would be a terrible pick to the Raptors, I agree, but I am not talking about the Raptors. I'm talking just about Donatas. He has a lot of potential, but he can end up like Darko too. Very risky pick.

highest potential guy and very possible bust at the same time. Who thinks, Enes, Jan And Jonas has more potential, should leave basketball forums.
Jan Vesely was voted top young player in Europe over Montiejunas not to mention, Montiejunas is less athletic and does nothing better then Vesely

LOL. Ok, i will teach you broad stripes and bright stars guys.
That voting is just fans+some coaches voting. The same nonsense as NBA all-star voting. It's not an achievement or something you should follow. And it's FIBA Europe young star voting. Donatas Motiejunas had nothing to do with FIBA this year or last year at all.

Motiejunas does nothing better then Vesely? Wow.

yup Vesley does everything better then Montiejunas do your research son, Vesley gets more boards, scores bore points, shoots on higher percentages etc etc not to mention he's doing it vs the top over-seas teams while Montiejunas is playing D-Leauge level teams

Montiejunas PPG per 40: 16, Vesely: 17
Montiejunas FG %: 48%, Vesely: 58%
Montiejunas 3PT% 22%, Vesley 33%
Montiejunas Rebounds per 40: 8, Vesley 8.5

facts are facts, nuff said, owned

Montiejunas is nowere close to as good as Vesely

dont be a hater because you have absolutley no idea what your talking about

You owned me researcher? You failed so hard, i don't even know why I am still talking with you.

First. Benetton >>>> Partizan. Donatas playing against D league teams? Nice comparison, very precise LOL. Funny is, half of Partizan players are 20 year old or younger no name Serbs, and for real, that team looks D-leaguish compare to Donatas' team. Donatas would awned that team. Disagree? So do some research


How many times you saw Jan this season and how many times you saw Donatas this season? Researcher, I am Euro ball fan, I know about it 10x more than about the NBA, and I know much about the NBA.
They are different players. Jan is better defender and he is more athletic, but he is poor scorer. Motiejunas opposite, he is not good defender, but he is very good offensive player, even better shooter than Jan and he is a bigman. He can score in all possible ways, in and out. While all Jan can do, dunk and play defense. Best scenario - Andrei Kirilenko, worst scenario - Joe Aleksandar. Jan is no better than Donatas, Donatas made a big jump this season, while Jan looks the same, he actually regressed with you ask me.

P.S. Donatas is still more risky, but at the same time, he is higher pick.
