But one important thing to remember is the Euroleague games are eight minutes shorter than NBA games so Euroleague stats, especially offensive stats are a lot lower. For example this year Rondo is leading the NBA in assists with 12.9 pg yet in Euroleague Spanoulis is leading the league with only 6.3 pg, half Rondo the NBA leader. So that has to be taken into account when comparing NBA and Euroleague stats. For example when Rubio won the championship with Barca in 2010 his 4.1 apg was 4th in assists in the whole of Euroleague.

The minutes played per game are listed there dumb ass. Also, you can't extrapolate minutes per game like you are doing. That's absurd. Just because the game is 8 minutes longer is does not mean the stats just extrapolate out to 8 minutes.

You are not factoring in rotation size, other players getting more PT, fatigue, etc.
