I was able to compile all Llull's highlights from his MVP performance in the championship game of the 2012 Copa Del Rey. Also some info from asking about Llull, the team's view on him and his NBA timeline.

@3:40 I noticed his drink of choice during timeouts is Red Bull, so I'll just say it now.

Sergio "The Bull" Llull.

My condolences to Matt Bullard.

Yeah, he looks very impressive. I too was under the impression that he was a 2-guard, but from that video, it's clear that he can play both; actually he even looks like more of a PG than Dragic does. Obviously he's gonna want an opportunity to win a starting job, and it's hard for me to see that happening while Lowry's here. Quite a quandry.

Thanks Clutch!

Thanks Clutch.

But finish out his contract? UGH !!

He would be like 26 or 27 years old by then, and will still have to adjust to the NBA game.

Sigh -- patience for this rebuiling/not rebuilding has waned considerably.

Is he left-handed?

If he's not, then his affinity for moving right then stopping for the 3 is unusual, most right-handed players are more naturally oriented to moving left then stopping for that shot.

I don't know if that is an issue, but it could always play in the Rockets favor to have a good shooter who moves unconventionally.

Sigh!!!

I wish they could bring him over next season. Specially given our PG situation heading into the summer.

Goran Dragic and Jonny Flynn are both unrestricted FA this upcoming summer, and both aren't likely to come back. Specially Dragic, who will have teams that can offer him a starting spot and more money then what the rockets would willing to offer him. So Next year would be perfect time for Llull to come over!

Great article and video, Clutch. I've been high on the guy a long time, but damn! He appears to have improved every aspect of his game, a lot more than I expected. That was a high pressure game and Llull really stepped up. As Clyde would say, I like it! We have to do whatever we can to get Sergio over here!

Scola took little time to transition to the NBA, and he was 28 when he got here.

Same for Rubio.

I don't see why he can't make an immediate impact.

Hands off DD! You can root for him in silence, but anything on here counts as a formal jinx. Don't shoot him down before takeoff! Let's give the man a chance.

I think it's funny that "three" is the only thing they don't translate. Bullard needs to use this.

Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. Llull is way more athletic and isn't that finesse playmaker that always looks to dish it. He's a kick and drive guy who looks to score first.

Honestly, if he was traded this summer to a team like the Lakers, I bet he would be over here in a heart beat. With the Rockets, its just not worth it for both parties to grind out a nasty contract buyout situation. With another team that wants to make him their PG of the future, it just might be worth it.

The timing of his MVP success couldn't be better given the trade deadline is a mere 2 weeks away. Lowry is still the Rockets PG of the future and they are hoping he will conjure up enough interest to be the catalyst in a deal coming up here in a few weeks.
