Default Re: Nick Galis: "Euroleague Scrub" That Scored 50 points In A Game Against Michael Jo

No, Galis wasn't in his prime in the early 80's, unless you also believe that Jordan was at his absolute prime in '87, because of averaging a career-high in scoring (and that's after an injury, btw). Galis' absolute prime came somewhat late in his career, between '87 and '90 and would last a bit more if he didn't get a pretty serious foot injury that prevented him from playing in the 1990 World Championship. When the injury healed, he still averaged 37.0 ppg for the 1990-91 season, at the age of 34.

Finally, I'm not comparing the 2, but you know damn well that Team USA would still
easily win the gold medal with Galis in young Jordan's place and that Greece of the early 80's would still not be a powerhouse with young Jordan in Galis' place.

Hold on

why all of a sudden

Galis is relevant here

Seton never even made to March Madness

When Galis was playing there

You look at Seton Hall retired numbers

you don't see Galis jersey

Hanging around the rafters.

Galis never played for USA

Because he can't even lead team

in the NCAA tournament

Why you putting his numbers in Europe

Like it was supposed to mean something

McAdoo who can't even get an NBA gig

His corpse was transplanted over

and dominated in the same time frame.

26 and 10 and the title.

Something Galis could never accomplished.
