    Default Sabonis

    Anyone know anything about Arvydas Sabonis' kids? Sounds like Tommy is on the trail of one, from what I've heard.

    Domantas, the second son, I think, averaged 14.1 points and 14.4 rebounds per game during the European U-16 championship in 2012.

    Looks like he's around 6'9.

    Anyone have anything?

    Ideal to step in and fill the Overseas Big role when Karnowski leaves.

    If he's in the 1996 class, we might want to pass.

    International youth sports .... i.e. futbol, hoops, etc. are organized and predicated on D.O.B. Thus the reference to 1996.

    As a kid, I called him Arthritis Sabonis. And there was also Bloody Divac.

    A little before my time, but long before Euros were so prominent in the NBA - back even in USSR days, wasn't Sabonis regarded as one of the best players in the world (in his prime - not old old when he finally came over)?

    He was one of the best bigs on the NBA. Great passer, great shooter. He came over after he had knee issues. Would have loved to seen him in top form.

    Probably just me, but is anyone else here in the campground getting weary of DMJ's snipe hunts?

    I also think it would be a very good get. From what I understand, Tommy has had home visits.

    Did anyone notice the freaky clock atop both baskets in the vid clip? Is an electrician in the house?

    Google translate says:

    Gonzaga University wants to recruit the next season and the club offers part of the first team, riding with the reserves - Unicaja, at least, try to get your rights when returning

    17/05/2013 | 1:42

    Domas Sabonis has been a very important asset Corner Clinics in the final of the LEB Plata. G. Torres
    Photos of the news
    RAFAEL M. WAR Domantas Sabonis is the great pearl Unicaja quarry. The youngest son of the legendary Arvydas Sabonis is the brightest of their offspring. The power forward is still first-year junior but already has weight in the Corner Clinics and even made ​​part of the preseason with Unicaja. "Domas" as everyone knows him, came into the world in Portland (USA), when the great lessons taught power forward in the NBA. Turned 17 on May 3 springs. Measures and 2.09 meters (seven feet barely summer 2012) and go for something very big in this basketball.

    The boy has been living in Torremolinos small even without the DNI. It Lithuanian and American dual citizenship. In Spain uses the NIE and is baloncestítiscos purposes, a valuable training quota. In Los Guindos is lovingly cares, although the club is well aware that this summer can fly the nest.

    The prestigious Gonzaga University (Washington) has launched a fierce offensive to Domas leave the Costa del Sol in the coming months and become a Bulldog (nickname for players of the University).

    In Los Guindos already known for some time that there is a real possibility that Domas to leave to pursue their academic and baloncestística the United States and have not been idle crossed. The club has made him see the player and their environment that may have a place in the first team for next year. Will do, of course, the preseason with Unicaja and if it proves to be prepared will have a gap with the 'big'. Otherwise, Domas would be halfway between the first team and the reserves, the Corner Clinics.

    Although not got promoted on the track, Spanish Basketball Federation has already allowed to see it has a place in the LEB Oro, so Sabonis would train with the first team, could have opportunities during the season and would enjoy many minutes into the second category of the Spanish basketball field.

    As the company is complicated and Sabonis family is looking forward to the guy from forming in the United States, has begun negotiating with them an agreement to follow your career Domas Unicaja. If when you finish your four-year college tour returns to Spain or the European basketball field, the club wants him to Unicaja, and can not sign for any other team. It would be a kind of compensation for "services rendered" during all these years, in which the green club has been instrumental in its formation.

    If Domas not drafted in the future or not makes the leap to the NBA, the power forward should play or yes in the Unicaja. On that idea works, because the club does not want to be left empty-handed after forming the player. That would be the wrong choice, because the main objective of the organization is that the smallest of Sabonis even have the hole in the green template 2013/14, within the first team, depending on the movements of this summer and that the guy to step forward and win the job.

    His father was 7'3 and his son is already 6'10 at 17. I'm never too optimistic but this is the most optimistic I've been all off season.
