Recommended Posts

this was one of the best move the front office made

nice article, but one of the great benefits of JV is in the locker room and away from the court.  In Toronto his team mates loved and respected him, coaches found him coachable and approachable....this is not to say he doesnt shout back(rarely) at the coach while on the floor during the game if he disagrees, or stands tall and in your face to an opponent that crosses the line with a him or a team mate, or argue with a ref...

And JV appreciates this team and ownership and the fans....I think and hope he is part of the solution going forward.

I ❤️ JV  but I really don't like I ❤️JV.

Forealz last year I was one of his top fans here ....but his country fans this year (some)are such a turn off (not recently) that it turn me into a JV hater.

JV needs to be the 3rd option in scoring on some nights. He's pretty good.

I think it's pretty awesome we get new fans because of one player. Especially fans from halfway across the world. 

My Lithuanian heritage also makes me want to root for JV more. 

Has anyone noticed how similar he and Travis Kelce look? Noticed this when watching the Chiefs game on sunday.

By and large the JV fans are a great addition to the boards(seriously, do you remember the Darko fans?). Even the most unrepentant ones have contributed positively and shown knowledge and love for the sport (I’d swear Lithuanian kids learn to take jump shots before they learn to walk). I hope most of them remain Grizzlies fans when/if Jonas leaves.

Are you suggesting all Lithuanians look the same?

I think JV is a long-term piece.  Man, it looks like you still need a guy like that in today's league (Plus, I think the league is gradually getting bigger/longer again).

So... save up some money to resign him once his current deal is over.

I am really liking our top 9 or 10 guys.  How do we keep 'em all???

I think we should keep our Ja/Jaren/Clarke/Jonas/Melton/Dillon/Grayson/Slo Mo core, see about keeping Crowder then retool/tweak the back end of our bench from year to year (shorter contracts, draft well, get more picks, go after cheap utility players that fill needs).

Maybe we just add high volume/moderate volume 3 point shooters, extra bigs, a solid small forward, and draft BPA every year or so as this core enters its PRIME.

Hope so, but that's usually not the case. I remember when Pau and Marc were here in their respective stints a lot of Spanish fans were Grizzlies fans... when we were winning. Not a lot of fellow countrymen nowadays I think...

You, me, Elillo, and a few lurkers. Still, that counts for what, 20% of all active posters?

I don’t give a fk about this racist sheep, as all intelligent people do, and suggest you follow them at least in this regard.
