Default Re: Euroleague MVP of the week Farmar "This Euroleague is easier than NCAA"

In the article, which is written in Hebrew, he goes on to say he enjoys his time in Israel because it is much easier playing less games and less practices and no weight training.

Wow, it's true some of the things he said but is NCAA really better than the Euroleague? Surely the MVP must be wrong!

I'm from Israel and I read Hebrew.
Don't remember seeing such an interview and I never heard of the "Tel Aviv Standard".
Could you please put a link?
