Naturally, it owns and has branches in every other amateur basketball association in Europe. Therefore it is logical FACT that Euroleague is the foundation of all European basketball. If you play basketball in Europe, you are in the Euroleague.
Is it a mere coincidence that every player that goes from the NBA to the Euroleague has some sort of significant flaw, whether in their game or in their personal life? You guys signed crackhead Lamar ****ing Odom and he instantly won the EL dunk contest. How long before he wins MVP and FMVP? Marquis Teague, not even his brother Jeff, could go there TODAY and win it all.
It's a ****ing joke, really.
I don't normally defend Euroleague but from your argument the NBA owns and has branches in the D-league so by that logic the D-league is part of the NBA.
Also Odom just signed with the Knicks. He lasted only two games in Spain (because of an injury) and I'm sure didn't win any dunk contests. I don't even think Euroleague has a dunk contest.
