earlier, we had a poster claim that since Viktor was shooting 30% from the floor, it was proof he was a bad shooter. And that it was enough proof to show that he probably wouldn't be a good shooter.

Well, he's now shooting 50% from the floor.

****, if Viktor is playing this well while he is under 100% healthy. AND Monia is supposedly the better prospect and shooter....we'll have one helluva player comming over next year. I am really stoked about the idea of bringing both Russians off of the bench next year. They'll need a catchy nickname.

How about "The Russian Roulette"

I still like the nickname of Sergei "Pneu" Monia.

Crappy spinoff comments like, "He's sick!" and "He's air powered!" come naturally from it (ok... the second one doesn't make much sense from a basketball perspective, but I grew up in a family where pneumatics were oft-discussed, and I'm sure there's something there...)

Victor still needs to shoot more. It's selfish of him not to shoot.

I love his potential, he's showing some attributes that no other Blazer has.

So let's nickname him "Sheed".

I don't know. I don't see why people envision Khryapa and Monia coming off the bench, especially with the very impressive performances we have seen from Viktor alone. In fact, I think Khryapa should at least be getting the same amount, if not more minutes than Outlaw in our rotations. I am excited to see Monia next season and I definately think he's an improvement (with the hype alone) over what we currently have at the 2 (Derek Anderson, Damon Stademayr).

I say we start them!

War and Peace?
Crime and Punishment?
The Brothers Krazymofos?

hmmm. maybe a little too literary for the NBA.

I always liked Twin Tweaners for Zach/SAR. maybe it'll apply to them.

I suggested that one night on courtside (forgot who came up with it..was it you?). And despite me saying it wasn't ME who came up with it, they implied that it was me who came up with it. hrumph.
