Jonas Valanciunas Throws Down Alley-oop Off The Glass (VIDEO)
Lithuanian center shows why he was the No. 5 pick.
It’s been a rough couple of years for the Toronto Raptors, but this year, help may be on the way. No, the Raptors didn’t succeed in bringing Steve Nash back home to Canada, but they do have Jonas Valanciunas, a 20-year-old 7-footer who they took with the fifth pick in the ’11 NBA Draft. Experts say that had Valanciunas been in this year’s Draft, he would have been the No. 2 pick. In Lithuania’s Olympic tune up against Iceland yesterday, he showed why.
