    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/25/12 — Stephen Strasburg

    As a Toronto Raptors fan, I wasn’t all that impressed when the team used their fifth-overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft to pick Lithuanian center Jonas Valanciunas.  After all, there were still some big-name NCAA players on the board, like Kentucky’s Brandon Knight and UConn’s Kemba Walker.
