This CONFIRMS EVERY SINGLE THING I HAVE SAID HERE.

This is from a MAJOR AND WELL RESPECTED USA media source and in English.

"There's a slew of guys in Europe that could be on NBA teams," said Milwaukee Bucks vice president of player personnel Dave Babcock. "But a lot of times, they get to a point where they're making so much money over there, that they can't afford to come to the NBA."

Babcock goes to Europe two to four times a year to scout games and look for draft-eligible players perhaps the next Ersan Ilyasova and at free agents such as Lojeski. There is NBA talent there.

"Matt's [Lojeski's] team has a starting point guard, Vassilis Spanoulis, who was drafted by Houston," said Babcock. "He signed with Houston, but Jeff Van Gundy would never play him. After that he got mad and left. He's definitely an NBA player."

CONSIDER YOURSELVES OWNED INSIDEHOOPS

OWNED
Spanoullis is not an NBA caliber player, he averaged 2.7ppg on 30% (18% from three) on garbage time and told his coach that he was the "Tmac of Euroleague" and the coach swiftly responded with "Well Tmac is Tmac here" and cut the whiny son of a bitch after 31 games. Honestly he was trash in the NBA, he tried and failed. Meanwhile NBA scrubs like Sonny Weems and Anthony Parker have gone over to Euroleague and etched themselves onto Euroleague's Mount Rushmore. So it's quite clear which league is superior.
