Default Sergey Karasev leads Russia in scoring, with 25 points

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eebsl0XB8ww

impressive game from sergey. this is the first full, non-all-star game ive seen from him, and im probably getting ahead of myself, but i like the look of this guy.

hes clearly a great shooter, but he has a shifty handle, and was able to create space off the dribble, without dominating the ball.

if you wanna watch the whole game, heres a link; http://bt.davka.info/forum/viewtopic.php?id=16277


what do you guys think of karasev?

i think hes probably too small to play SF, and he will definitely have an adjustment period, but in a year or two, i could see him being a really useful guard off the bench, like a poor mans ginobili (who he compares himself to).

This is sort of a non-sequator, but I really didn't know where to put it, and it certainly doesn't warrant it's own thread.

I'll start by adressing your point. I really like Karasev. I'm on record as such in my big mock draft thread in the draft forum. I know he's a little limited athletically, but he can shoot, and his body is solid, so I'm not too worried about him moving forward physically, just that he's probably never going to be elite around the rim. And it took all of five minutes of watching him in the Hoops Summit game to realize he really knew how to play (along with Dennis Schroeder, both of whom I became pretty obsessessed with following watchaing that game). He's a very good passer, very clever with the ball, and has a great sense of spacing and flow. The Cavs other rookie, Delavadova, has a similar sense, just not the shooting or size.

Anyway. My reason for posting here is that I watched the Cavs preseason game the other day, and for the life of me I'm convinced the announcers spent the whole game pronouncing it
Curr-ASS-Suff, as opposed to Care-uh-sieve, which I'm almost certain is the correct pronounciation.
If anyone in Cavs land can confirm, just let the announcers know.

Thanks.

i had been pronouncing (mostly in my head while reading) it sir-gay kah-rah-sev, but that is definitely wrong, according to the cavs beat reporter its Ku-RAH-sev, and here sergey says it at 2:28 http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=F_KfCNuT2FA

to me that sounds like sir-gee cah-rah-syuv

the short answer is, im not sure

here is some cavs fans discussing it, thats where i got most of my info from; http://www.realcavsfans.com/showthre...tmaker!/page35

Thanks.

I'm more inclined to like him as Care-uh-sev I think for some reason.
