If it meant that much, why doesn't Stojakovic stand out more in the Euroleague?
You may only say that Peja started his NBA career as a bench player, but then again, why doesn't Danilovic stand out more? Where is Kirilenko's scoring title? And why didn't Dominique Wilkins, who participated in 2 Euroleagues, win any Euroleague scoring titles? How did someone as unknown as Joe Arlauckas surpass him? Why didn't McDaniel or Tom Chambers or Roy Tarpley win any?
Let'see: we got actually 5 players who were Euroleague scoring champion 1 year and then they play in NBA the next year.
