European League Scrubs/Role Players That Started In NBA And/Or Are Lotto Picks
 
1. Darko Milicic
2. Nikoloz Skitashvili
3. Ricky Rubio
4. Jonas Jerebko
5. Ommri Casspi
6. Jan Vesely
7. Brandon Jennings

I can list probably dozens more, but for now, this will suffice well enough for the thread.

Milicic = role player in Adriatic League
= 2nd pick of NBA/NBA starter

Skita = role player in ACB
= 5th pick of NBA

Rubio = scrub in Euroleague
= 5th pick of NBA/projected starter for Wolves in NBA

Jerebko = role player in Italian League
= draft pick of NBA/starter in NBA

Casspi = role player in Euroleague
= first round pick of NBA/starter in NBA

Vesely = role player in Euroleague
= 6th pick of NBA/projected starter for Wizards in NBA

Jennings = scrub in Euroleague
= lotto pick in NBA/NBA starter/55 points in one game scorer in NBA


Keep in mind, that MANY more examples will be brought up as this thread goes on. So, how is it that these role players/scrubs in Europe become first round NBA picks, even some of them lotto picks, and can become starters in the NBA?

Discuss.

that some players are better suited to NBA ball than they are to Euro ball? Difficult concept to grasp, I know:cheers:

Jennings would have dominated that league.

Like what Jordan Farmar is doing.

But he was only 18.

Playing on limited minutes.

American scrubs play in Europe because they can not make a living in NBA.

He was a scrub.

He was 19.

He played normal rotation minutes.

You are a moron.

Exactly... it's not his fault he was a high school kid trying to learn.

Apparently, he learned, and is now a middling NBA point guard. Wow.

A few mistakes. For one, Jerebko was the 39th pick. In the NBA, 39th isn't lottery.

Secondly, why is Casspi considered an NBA starter when he starts less than 40% of his games?

Also, why is he called role player in Europe (when he started no?) and starter in NBA (when he's still considered a role player no?). I mean, if you can't start even 40% of games for a terrible lottery team, are you not a "role player"?

Numerous European scrubs play in the NBA because they were draft picks there, despite being scrubs in Europe (many not even able to get a Euroleague contract).

The NBA is a great place for European scrubs to earn a living, even for some to become lotto picks and starters.

Are you for real?

Darko is a huge scrub and has been since he joined the NBA.
Niko... barely made a roster and was out of the league in a year or two.
Ricky hasn't played in an NBA game.
Jerebko has finally started to get it... but then he got injured.
Omri seems to be developing well, but I wouldn't call him a good NBA player yet.
Jan hasn't played an NBA game.
Brandon Jennings is a middling NBA point guard.

Where are you going with this?
