Re: Greg Popovich Agrees That NBA Champions Are Not The "World Champions"
Well Pop is right. This has nothing to do with NBA being the best league in the world (because NBA is the best league in the world there's no doubt about it).
It's just that the World Champion is the best national team in the world. I mean, the team that wins Euroleague is not Europe Champion, it's Euroleague champion (team that wins Eurobasket is Europe Champion) : Mavs might be better than the Spanish national team, but that doesn't make them world champion.
How can people argue that another team that the team winning the World Championship is "world champion" ?
