Right, and very thinly veiled. Even the way he describes what his version of athletic is. You can tell he wants to just say "black guy" but won't.

Just fyi, the european part of russia takes up about 40% of mainland europe and ~80% of the russian population lives in the european parts. Even though siberia is a lot bigger then european russia, Russia is for for all intents and purposes an european nation.

The other two certainly weren't born in europe, but moved here as kids.

You know, in the OP, you forgot to include that they "look funny".

Pietrus is the only exception... he has "good" all-around defense. Solid man-man, solid weakside. So I guess my theory is not 100% fail-proof.



Sefolosha - Only thing athletic about him is his dunks are OK, but he's not even that good of a dunker... he's not very athletic
Rudy Fernandez - exposed in the dunk contest... not very athletic
Parker - Fast... but otherwise, not very athletic (see: strong, explosive, & vertical)

Pietrus - again, I can be wrong

And as someone already pointed out, none of those guys were a top 3 pick. Most of what I said above is the truth. You've got to be a real gambler to take a euro player with the top 3 pick. Most of the time your fishing for a one dimensional player: offense only.


No words can describe what a terrible post this is that you created.
