Using your logic (the logic of a person with a 65 IQ) that means Euroleague > NBA.
Now I can't tell if you're trying to be funny or are serious and just a delusional crazy. Are we honestly having this discussion. Yes Ricky Rubio who was voted:
3x FIBA young player of the year
Euroleague rising star
named the Spanish DPOY when he led said league in steals
not to mention winning a Euroleague championship
and he is was one of the worst player of Euroleague? And all of this before the age of 20!
And he comes over to the NBA is voted all-rookie first team and he is a star?
This is Euroleague! Euroleague where Andei Kirilenko who made one all-star game 8 years ago and since then had been a role player in the NBA, goes over to Euroleague and becomes the freaking league MVP and DPOY and was one missed jumped shot away of being the Final Four MVP too!!
I mean jeez, even people who know how bad Euroleague were not expecting that domination from an NBA role player! And Krstic was first team too! I mean Krstic?!!
Not to mention that the Euroleague Finals MVP along with three other players from the Euroleague Champion Olympiacos lost in the Olympic Qualifying tournament to Nigeria! The same Nigerian team that lost to Team USA by 83 points and looked like they should not have been on the court with them.
Look I enjoy Euroleague and think it is the 2nd best league in the world but to think that it is anywhere close to the NBA in talent level is just insane. Any mediocre/role player in the NBA has the chance to go to Euroleague and be voted 1st team all-Euroleague! I mean Kleiza and Khryapa have for Christ's sake!!
