Had no idea Domas is so fluent in Spanish. Amazing, hard to believe he just turned 21 last week!

Sabonis' mom and dad have lived in Malaga, Spain since '04 (when Domas was 8).

Here's another good piece on Domantas' summer plans, this one from NewsOK.com (http://newsok.com/article/5550426):

In addition to Summer League July 1-6, Sabonis will also be playing for the Lithuania National Team in the FIBA EuroBasket championships from Aug. 31-Sept. 17. He'll arrive in Lithuania July 30 for camp, play EuroBasket, then sneak in some rest before NBA training camp in October.

“That was an important focus, too, to get some rest, so I wouldn't be worn out before the season starts,” Sabonis said.

Before that, he'll head home for the wedding of his brother, 25-year-old Tautvydas, on June 8. Tautvydas, a former professional basketball player, used to be Domantas' ear when it came to talking basketball before his Hall of Fame dad Arvydas Sabonis slid into that role this season.

Arvydas' message to his youngest son?: “‘Shots will go in and out, but carry on, keep working hard because it's only your first season. You'll have time to improve,'” Domantas said.
