Lithuania took on Iceland (yes, apparently they play basketball there) in a pre-Olympic tuneup game on Tuesday, but not even the mighty Eyjafjallajökull could stop the above events from happening.
Forget results or stats for a moment (they were playing Iceland for God’s sake). Let’s just admire this one singular highlight for the time being. First of all, the setup pass from Kalnietis was both spectacular and ballsy, but the finish was absolutely thunderous.
Valanciunas shows off his highly touted athleticism and explosiveness on this alley-oop jam, coming out of nowhere (check out where he took off from) to forcefully bang the pass home over a poor, helpless Icelandic fellow.
To finish, there’s nothing like girating on an opponent’s back and getting the crowd amped up. But what else would you expect from a guy who was once compared to Rambo?
Now wipe your mouth, you’re drooling.
