He's had games that were better than this in the NBA against real stars so why all of this craziness over beating Poland? He's entering his third year in the NBA for god's sake and these type of performances should be the rule and not the exception, especially against inferior players.
No hysteria, just pleasure seeing him develop. He had 4 inferior teammates on his side. He comes from a nation of under 2 million people, so naturally, not a great team. Poland has 37 million, so while they're not huge, they certainly have a larger population to produce players. Latvia is smaller than freakin' Queens.
