I don't agree. Judging the teams I know, for example:
* Barcelona and Madrid got the money and rosters to compete with this stronger schedule.
* Caja Laboral and Unicaja DON'T. The more games they play, the harder it will be for them to play 100% every game. Specially for Caja Laboral, considering how Ivanovic manages his rosters. These two will have serious problems in the ACB league.
Also, if you need more proof, just see how Bilbao plays when there's no Euroleague game during the week, compared to when there isn't.
