    Not such a great showing from Luigi today. 0-6 from the field and scoreless in 31 minutes. But Italy still won against an NBA-laden Turkish team.

    The other Euro guy (TOEG) - Jonas Jeberko, scored 12 for Sweden, but they've been trounced in both their first 2 games against Greece and surprisingly, Finland.

    Do you know if the coach played him out of position?

    HOW MANY CLUES DID HIS COACH HAVE?

    OR WAS HE COMPLETELY CLUELESS?

    Can't pin this one on the coach. Datome himself played the ball out of position. He played it off the rim when he should have played it into the cylinder. Rookie error.

    As far as I know the coach still had a Full Clue and Two 20 second clues left as Italy won quite easily.

    Perhaps it will look like that after he breaks out. For now, it looks like:

    2013-14: $1.75 million
    2014-15: $1.75 million

    Dabone is an excellent player when given proper rest but completely useless when he's played too many minutes.

    Other players were jealous of Luigi. Would not get him the ball in the proper spot. 3 of the shots were actually passes off the rim. Yep.

    Pizza Guy didn't want to show-up his Turkish opponents.

    I remember a young prospect we had around here a few years back. He could run like a gazelle, block shots, shoot the three, and he could fly... but the rim gave him all kinds of trouble.
    Nice avatar.

    Gigi is way too mature to be a Piston.
