If you’ve been keeping up with me since I took over the basketball reigns here for Razzball Nation, you know I’ve had two guys I’ve been all about. Tobias Harris and Jonas Valanciunas. Yes the luminescent Latvian (LL). OK, so I’m not one to talk, I’m paler than an Icelander living in Seattle. But it sounded cool when I made it up.

BRINGING THE THUNDER
Tweet During the preseason Memphis Grizzlies big man Marreese Speights showed Toronto Raptors rookie Jonas Valanciunas that blocking a dunk isn’t an easy proposition. The learning process for the first year NBA player from Lithuania continued tonight. This time the teacher was three-time scoring champ Kevin Durant. Just a few days ago Durant was [...]
