Valanciunas Attends “The Other Dream Team” Screening

Jonas Valanciunas: Promising Raptors rookie centre. National symbol. Movie star.

The 20-year-old rookie has a key role in the outstanding 2012 basketball documentary The Other Dream Team, as the story of his journey from Utena, Lithuania to the NBA represents both hope and freedom only made possible by generations of countrymen before him.
