bball in the states vs bball in europe?
 
what are the main differences? so far, i've heard that in the states athleticism is a lot more important because of the emphasis of attacking the rim that is taught to players at an early age. in europe though, i've heard that players need to be a lot more technical in their skills and have a huge emphasis on moving the ball around and putting up mid range shots.

European players learn more fundamentals but arent as athletic as players in the States.

One of the misconceptions is that in Europe it's more finesse, but most players who have played in the U.S. and in Europe say that the post play is actually more physical in Europe.

One big thing that can happen, especially for lower relegated teams, is that players can work against each other, even on the same team. Meaning, it can actually occur that players won't pass to a certain player if they don't like them for some reason. That would never happen in the NBA.
