Advice for the Balls in Lithuania:

Jonas Valanciunas says,  "They're getting themselves into a great opportunity," Valanciunas said. "Lithuania is beautiful country. I hope they're going to like it. ... It's a high level of basketball, so we'll see how they're gonna do it.

"The sky's the limit. They go out there, they show they can play -- basketball is everywhere. Every country's playing basketball, Lithuania included. We have great basketball history. We're such a small country, but we have many, many great players. Our basketball school is good., so they chose a really good school.

"They just gotta work hard -- it's all about working. You can be as good as you can be by working. Talent is one thing, but work you put in, that's gonna show up.

"If they have any problems, let me know. I can help them out."


Know any good lawyers, Jonas?

Right now, LeBJ's career #'s:
29,601 Points
 7,948  Boards
 7,705  Assists
    850 Blocks
 1,791 Steals

He turns 33 end of Dec.
4 + more productive years and his career numbers could be:
35,000 Points, 10,000 Boards, 10K Assists, 2,000 Steals, 1,000 Blocks.
Which is insane.
Now he could slow down significantly.
And injuries could always crop up, as he'd has a ton of miles on his body.

Things would have to go well for him to hit all those milestones.
But he'll likely make some of them, and be close to all.
(only 5 players have had 10K Assists; only 12 2,000 Steals -- though Chris Paul getting close to those levels; LBJ already 7th in all-time scoring).
1000 blocks not really a historical figure, but still looks nice on a resume.

I think by the time he's done, James stats are going to be a magnificent curiosity, but the only way anybody's ever going to know how great he really was/is to have him watched him play.  That's why Youtube exists.  I think it's fair to say that every player he's played with, with the odd exception of Kevin Love, is/was a better player playing with him.

Speaking of Love -

his numbers at age 29 are staggering

11K plus points

Approaching 7K rebounds

Kyrie may be better minus LBJ, we'll see.  May be the second best player in the league right now.

The Big O's #'s are crazy.

Interestingly, Westbrook is nearly averaging a trip-dub again this year, but nobody cares, because his team is sub, 500 and his shooting #'s stink.  23 / 9.9 / 9.7 . . .  ho hum.

Kyrie?

(Wade probably too, but he may have peaked physically before LeBron arrived)

Bosh had to change his game significantly to fit in with LeBJ.
Bosh was a more dominant scorer in TOR.
But became a very good, active defender in MIA.
Which I wouldn't attribute to LBJ.

Hezonja had a career night v. DET.
8-13 on 3's (he only took 13 3's in NOV), good for 28 points in 31 mins.
Added 6 boards and 3 steals.
Two games before that he had 17 & 9.
Be nice for ORL if Hez can turn into a legit player.
Simmons is the only one I like on that team, and being a late bloomer, he's already 28.

I think Jimmer had a few down games (around 27 points on tons of FGA's in 3 or so games), and his team was losing.  Though I spotted an easy win for them 2 nights ago.

'bout .500 are the Sharks.  Disappointing.

Jimmer had a FIFTEEN point game recently.  Averaging 40 you arent always going to get near fifty.

I commented recently how it is now time for Fredette to show a different kind of leadership.
