David Lighty is an MVP in France

This deliciously translated article about David Lighty's European conquering comes from the Dispatch's Brian Hofmann's Twitter account:

Nobody will be able to finally stop the incredible journey of Nanterre Playoffs. Saturday in Pierre de Coubertin Stadium in boiling, JSFN won the first Champion of France's history, only two years after its accession in Pro A, beating Strasbourg in four innings after winning 83-77 . David Lighty was named MVP of the finals, and received the trophy from Ali Traore, distinguished himself in 2009.

Personally, I thought David Lighty was ready to contribute to an NBA team upon leaving college. Obviously, NBA executives disagreed, but there's little doubt they'll be re-examining the multi-tooled Lighty now.
