The other day I bragged about how I could spell Valanciunas without looking and I spelled it wrong! Then I got called out by a reader. How embarrassing! In any event, yesterday Jonas Valanciunas dropped 22/7/3 with 3 blocks in 39 minutes. Yeah, sure it was a double overtime game but you had to like what you saw. On Friday JV posted 9/6/1 with 2 blocks in 31 minutes. The game before that he went for 16/10/2 with a block in 35 minutes. You starting to get my drift here, good peoples? Over his last 5 he’s at 31 mpg/12.8 ppg/8.2 rpg/2 bpg/.610 FG/.667 FT. I’ve been talking about him since pre-season, told you to grab him, then told you to be patient, then told you to give him 10 more games. Those 10 games have passed and so has he! Frequent Commenter Andrew saw this coming last week. Do you read the Comments? You should, you could learn a lot! You can even ask questions, it’s really good stuff! Anyway, here’s what else I saw in fantasy basketball yesterday.

Toronto Raptors forward Amir Johnson got some late night shots up with two of Canada’s favorite pop culture icons, Justin Bieber and Drake. I wonder what that conversation was like. Interesting to note, Bieber seems to be repping the Blazers. PS, I love Drake! photo via Instagram
Spurs 111, Raptors 106
***I’m not sure who’s been better at finding painful ways to lose lately, Toronto or Washington. In their previous game, the Raptors fell to the Bobcats at the buzzer… but the NBA has admitted that a last-second foul should’ve been called — a foul that would’ve sent Andrea Bargnani to the stripe with a second to go in a one-point game. Based...
So here we sit on Nov. 27th, 3-11 and at the bottom of the very talented Atlantic Division. Morale is low and with a stretch of road games coming up, the bleeding is not likely to stop.
Did the Raptors entire season turn with that first game loss to the Indiana Pacers? The way it is unfolding, quite possibly.
The Raptors should of won that game and the way they lost started a spiral...
Gregg Popovich was in rare form this afternoon while dealing with the media in Toronto. Trust me, this is instant Popovich as he takes great pleasure in toying with members of the media before a game against the Raptors.

Canada (or #canada, if you’re on the Internet) has had it rough lately. The NHL lockout is nowhere in sight. The NHLPA is considering decertification. Canada needs hockey. They can’t play anything else. Look at Toronto’s mayor, he can’t take a snap without tripping and falling flat on his face. Now he’s getting kicked out of office. See how that works?Canada’s next...
