Well today was the last of the Eurobasket 2013 qualifying tournament aka summer league for Europeans. And these are the numbers for the Swedish Eagle himself.
A few things stand out for me even though, yes this is just a European qualifyer and yes the Swedes were in a weak pool not playing any current NBA players, and finally yes they ran offense through Jonas.
1. Even with a slight ankle injury Jonas commpleted the tournament, played 8 games and averaged 31 minutes a game. To me a positive that shows he totally past the ACL injury and back to rookie form.
2. Not his overall pts per game but his shooting percentage of 52% seems like a positive much higher than last years 47 percent and better than his career best year. Hustle plays off the bench are good, points..... are just as good.
3. 1.9 Steals JJ showed some penchant his rookie season for the steal averaging 1 per game but that dropped to .06 last year. It'd be nice to see this as a developing skill.
There you go, would enjoy your input. And for those of you that have been making the point of the lack of level of competition in this thing. JJ went up against names like former Alabama forward..... Charles Davis, and Zackary Wright a guy who went right from high school to the pros..... the French pros. So yeah come at me Ko(yeah pun)!
