Default Euroleague "Weekly MVP"s With Higher PIR Games Than Kirilenko/Batum/Farmar

Since this forum is obsessed with making up nonsense about how Andrei Kirilenko, Nicolas Batum, and Jordan Farmar are "dominating and destroying the Euroleague", and are "the GOATs in Euroleague history", based solely on early season PIR stats (Euroleague MVP of the Week).............

It is time to destroy this current and newest myth that NBA only fans have created. By listing all of the games in which previous Euroleague MVPs of the Week had higher PIR scores. Keep in mind that this does NOT include all the players that were not MVP of the Week, and also had higher scores.

There are plenty of other Euroleague players that also had higher PIR scores than the high scores for Kirilenko, Farmar, Barum, but that did not win the MVP that Week, because their PIR score for that game was not the highest in the league that week. Remember that there are only 10 games in the Euroleague regular season, and that the maximum number of games a team could play in the Euroleague in a season is 23. So do NOT confuse this with the amount of games available to be played in the NBA.

This shows just how completely and totally common these games and stats really are.This includes ONLY Euroleague games played since the 2000-01 season.

Every single one of those weekly MVPs had a HIGHER PIR score than ANY of the games ANY "NBA player" has had so far in Euroleague:


2011-12

Week 1: Andrei Kirilenko - 37 ranking
Week 2: Nicolas Batum - 36 ranking
Week 3: Jordan Farmar - 35 ranking
Week 4: Nicolas Batum - 35 ranking


92 games where Euroleague "MVP of the Week" had a HIGHER PIR score than anything so far that Farmar, Kirilenko, or Batum have had.

This just proves what complete BULL SHIT goes on in this forum, with all the endless crap posted here by NBA only fans. It also proves that these index scores are very common in the early part of the Euroleague season.

If I would have listed all the higher scores of players that did not win the MVP of the Week, and all the scores that were equal to them (35-37 range) it would have been well over a hundred such games with higher scores, in a league in which teams play between 10-23 games in an entire season, that has only been giving this "award" since the 2000-01 season.

There is NOTHING unusual or "dominant" or "GOAT" about these stats in Euroleague of Farmar, Batum, Kirilenko, and ANYONE saying there is - is a liar.
