My first reaction this week was that maybe he could have been even MORE effective in college if he would have stretched out, but with Karno going out and Wiltjer on the team I think he played the role he needed to play.

Agreed, ZF.

I'm expecting his 3PT percentage to drop off fairly soon though. 52% is just not sustainable over the course of an 82 game season, especially when opposing teams will start game-planning for him. Maybe if it was Wiltjer who's just a naturally gifted shooter. But for Sabonis, who I'm assuming just works his butt off in practice to be able to shoot like that in games, I think 36-38% will be a very good result.

No doubt about it, but if he can keep it above 35% it will keep opponents honest all season and as of right now that seems completely realistic. So happy for him up to this point.

Not sure if this will translate culturally, JStock, but:

Yeah, all he needs to do is to draw defenders in and space the floor, so 35-36% would definitely suffice. :)

Good one ;) Loved Chappelle and his show, "Race Draft" has to be one of the funniest skits ever.

Need to make the pilgrimage to Spokane for a Zags game, Jstock. I'd love to buy you a beer at Jack and Dan's. Just need to get Rokas Gustys to transfer over here next year to give you a good excuse :)
