Default For raptors fans: Garbajosa news

With his team up 2-0 in the best of 5 series for the ACB title against TAU and down 1 point in the 4th, he hits a 3 pointer with 38 seconds left to give his team the lead.
Next possesion Unicaja's D forces TAU to miss and the ball ends up in garbajosa's hands. He gets fouled and hits both FTs, giving his team the title and earning MVP honors for the finals.

Raptors won't regret signing him this summer.

chains,

Did you actually see it? Talk about what you think of him as a player

Couldn't see all of it, just the final minutes, but i've seen Garbajosa a lot of times playing for Spain.
He's a great shooter with 3pt range, and barely misses his freethrows. I remember one game with spain in the last european championships where he scored like 18 FTs without a miss. He's not afraid to take the bigs shots. In fact, he's used to taking them.
I think he can do well in the NBA, but i'm not so sure about how he would do in defense. He's got a lot of experience in important games and he'll be a good backup PF/C for Toronto.

It's not a bad contract considering Rafael Araujo makes roughly the same
