I need to buy a Christmas "Shveder"! Let's hear it for the Eastern Bloc! Pekovic, Kirilenko, and Shved!!!

Shved is coming along nicely. Good to see the 3pt% coming up, figured it would just be time before he adjusted to the greater distance of the NBA vs International line. He still needs to take better care of the ball though. It'll be interesting to see how he and Rubio do as a backcourt. Hope it works well, that'll be a nice backcourt for a decade.

Shved is going to be in the all-star game within a year or two. He is the real deal. Love his court sense, his shot, his passing, his ability to create, and his defense, all of which will get better. He simply has that coveted natural feel for the game and seems to learn very quickly.

Mr. Shved was good, but it was really a team win. Everyone contributed to the win both offensively AND defensively. In previous years when KLove would go 5 for 19 we had no chance. This year we win by 10. Solid evidence of a better team!

Abemntocal, definitely a team win. Not the prettiest game, but lots of significant contributions from just about everyone.

Pekovic played really well. He rebounded (16), played very active defense (including 3 blocks), and put pressure on Milwaukee offensively inside, despite all of Sander's blocks.

I can't wait to see Shved and Rubio on the same court together. The other players have to keep their heads in the game or there will be missed passed. The two gym rats, Barea and Ridnour, played well. Last night's game was fun. I hope Malcom Lee comes back soon too.

Just a matter of time when Alexi gets to start.

I said it when Ricky was drafted, against most of the opinions posted here: "he will be a star". Said the same thing again about Shved when he was aquired, against most of the opinions here. I'll be bold and make another prediction: Rubio and Shved will become the best backcourt in the NBA within 2 years.
