How can the score be so crazy? 169 - 29
Motiejunas outscored the entire team.
Are these two teams actually in the same league?
european baller this is who you should be hyping upnot sofo...see how he actually gives you something to work with?
Well they played NSB Napoli. They're the 16 place team (last place) with a record of 0-23. they lost recently to the 14 place team Carife FE (who is 8-15)...get this... 50-176. This Napoli team must SUCK
It says Travis Best and Damon Jones are on Napoli but they didnt play in the game. This team gets beat down by 100+ points in back to back games. Thats sad
That's that "shampoo" method of full-court press, steal, lay-up. I've never seen it be that effective though.
Anybody else notice Daniel Hackett and K.C. Rivers in the box score?
yeah baby Lithuanian kid can play!!! i;m happy not because of 32pts because he can score alot especially against worse teams but i'm happy because of 21!!!rebounds that's huge!
damn they had 2 players out score the other team and a third that had just as many points
21 boards is big for him. He has been one of the worst rebounders in the Italian league on a per minute basis, pretty bad given he doesn't always play huge minutes.
dont be too hard on him as far as rebounding he only averages one and 2 less then 5 guys in the top 10 in italy
CHECK THESE NUMBERS
hard to believe
59-76 from the field for motiejunas' team....SIX players with 20+ points(32,29,24,21,24,21) and they had 70 rebounds AND motiejunas played the whole game in a hundred pt blowout
the other team took 35 shots, not even half of the other team...made SEVEN fg's all game and one player in doub-digs
That's terrible. How do you get beat that bad? And your a "pro" team?
What do you guys think this means for his stock? He's been playing very well as of late (before this game), so his stock was rising regardless, but I'm not sure that a dominating performance against a lackluster team will solidify his position as a top-ten pick. What do you think?
Nuova AMG Sebastiani (or NSB Napoli) is 0-23 and has been outscored 2677-1297 on the season. They gave up everyone who could get a paycheck. They had Tractor Traylor and Damon Jones earlier in the season, but not since the new year. They are basically an amateur team.
I think he is a top 5 talent, top 5 in terms of potential, but will be picked from 7-15
I've always liked his potential as well. If the team that drafts him is smart and patient, he could be an all-star and a 20+ PPG scorer.
Agreed and the fact that he will most likely slip will be tragic...he will slip because of the rest of the talent up top in the draft...lack of exposure...and of course the Euro bigman bust fear...That will hurt his stock
but in the end I think he COULD end up the best bigman out of this draft....but I also like favors and Cousins
I hate how the mock draft has him going for the sixers, they don't need another bigman they need a shooting guard. Hopefully they'll get Wes Johnson if he slips to arounf the 6th pick or so.
Napoli is not a pro team. They have financial problems since the start of the season so they play every game with their youth team. They have no pro players in their roster because they don't have the money to pay them but didn"t want to retire from the championship. That explains Motiejunas stat and the final score.
Holy &$#%#&@!, anyone know where we can see video of this. I mean this D has to be AND1 esque.
Yeah dude, that´s right, now Napoli isn´t a pro team beacuse the owner decide to play with the youth team (15-18) years for the rest of the season: but for me, the really incredible thing is that two of this youth NO PRO TEAM has better stats all over the season than a top 5 nba pick like Donatas Motiejunas.
Check this out:
pts. reb. ast. blk. %2 %3 ft. stl. games
Motiejunas: 10.2 5,1 0,6 0,2 60,6 29,2 70,6 1,6 23
Ciavarroni 13,5 1,4 1,1 0,0 40,3 24,6 61,3 1,5 13
Matteo Giovannelli 11,1 4,7 0,1 0,6 43,1 9,1 86,7 0,9 7
Riccardo Ciavarroni is a 5-10 point guard which had born in 1992.
Matteo Giovannelli is a 6,8 small forward which had born in 1992.
How is that incredible?
It makes perfect sense.
Tiky, 0-23 and given up more than twice the number of points to the opposition than they have scored. Don't take per game scoring averages from that squad to try to diminish Motiejunas when he is typically playing talented grown men in the Italian League and really good comp in the EuroCup.
I feel bad for those kids. Players aren't going to get better being that overmatched and getting those kinds of poundings. They turned the ball over 41 times.
Beacuse the italian guys isn´t PROOOOOOOOOOOOO, they´re only two kids with a great opportunity to be in the LEGA, but without any experience and with the handicup to be in the worst team who ever played this sport. They don´t have greatest stats, i only say that Donatas who is in one of the best teams in the league and he is the star of his team, neither has good stats, and don´t play good games at least this year.
ok, that´s fine, those guys aren´t so good than Motiejunas, but I think they have some merit...
at least they deserve to be paid...
