New motorsports series to debut in the Baltics – for both street legal and sports cars

In the summer of 2019, a new motorsports event – “Baltic Time Attack Series” – is set for its debut, bringing the popular and affordable time attack event format to the Baltics. The best part of the event is the fact that it welcomes fast driving enthusiasts in street legal vehicles, as well as professionals with cars built specifically for this type of racing. Events abroad show that time attack events are often the first step into motorsports for those who do not enjoy the unreasonably low speed limits and speed cameras on the roads. At the same time, this is a very serious event for experienced racers, giving everyone the chance to further improve both driving skills and the cars they compete in. […]

Greg Monroe on the brawl with Jonas Valančiūnas: I would much rather play with a tough guy like Jonas than some timid player

The Toronto Raptors are getting ready for the upcoming basketball season this year by putting together a dominant duo in the front court.

Monroe fielded questions from Canadian news media outlets in reference to the 2017 incident during the playoffs between himself and Jonas Valančiūnas, which was basically a shoving match between the two. He responded by expressing a positive outlook about that situation. […]

An in-depth analysis of Lithuania’s national basketball team after the third window games!

About 6 minutes into Lithuania’s first game versus Poland on June 28th, I was thinking to myself that Lithuania was in big trouble. They didn’t start out good at all. A scrappy Polish team was putting up an intense fight, jumping out to an early lead. They were knocking down everything from beyond the arc and team LT looked like they had not even practiced. They were very slow on defensive switches and close-outs, which led to these wide-open early three-pointers by Poland. Basically, it looked as though LT was just going through the motions and mailing it in, not caring about winning or putting forth much effort at all […]
