Shaq majorly outplaying him, making him look bad out there Not prime Shaq even... Think all you need is to be really fat and really strong? Shaq was a great athlete, while being pretty skilled and smart, oh and also a really big guy.

I know he's just a troll and looking to get a rise out of us, but I really just want to get Euroleague on a blacktop and absolutely stomp a mudhole in his ass. Hopefully they teach you how to take an elbow down in Arkansas

According to former CBS NBA reporter Pat O'Brien, some of the NBA's higher-ups did not want fights to be shown on TV during NBA telecasts. And this was in the early '80s. And the NFL certainly used to censor fights and injured players lying on the field from their TV broadcasts during the 1950s and most of the '60s.

They must be really struggling to maintain their image if they're resorting to hiding their problems rather than fixing them.

Crazy, right? You'd think the Euroleague would suspend Big Stamos for at least a game or two.

I don't know which is worst:
- guys not giving a flying **** about an incident that was pretty relevant and could creat some problems for Sofo.
- guys trying to troll Euroleague all the time, it isn't even funny anymore.

To answer your question, no, the Euroleague cannot do anything to him. This was not a Euroleague game. The Euroleague and the Israeli League are two completely different and separate leagues. The Euroleague has no authority over the Israeli League.

The reason there is so much hostility in this thread is because this forum is full of jerks.


I'm sorry -- I was trolling you. I even thought twice about it and decided to go with it.

The fact that you didn't recognize this and get mad at me, but instead answered my idiotic question, makes me feel bad.

I sorry

And now the butt hurt mods moved the thread................

Let's open up a thread about Sergio and I bet you 95+% of the responses say he would be the worst player in the NBA.

I have ON RECORD, and NBA front office executive saying that Vassilis Spanoulis is "definitely an NBA player" and that "Jeff Van Gundy would never play him. After that he got mad and left".

This CONFIRMS EVERY SINGLE THING I HAVE SAID HERE.

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

http://www.jsonline.com/sports/racin...255954251.html

"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."

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.

Yeah, the Euroleague. Just like Rubio said it. Euroleague is much harder than the NBA is. He said it flat out. Of course the NBA and USA sports media has covered up those comments ever since he made them.

All of the endless NBA only fan trolling, and all of the endless patriotic zealotry from Americans can stop, and you can all STFU.


http://fiba.com/pages/eng/fc/news/la...2948/arti.html


FIBA.com: One of the important modifications of the new governance is that the NBA and the athletes will have a representative in the FIBA Central Board. What will that change concretely?

Baumann: Both things are very important. If you take the athletes, it's very easy to forget about them and to leave them on the side when we take decisions. I think they need to have a voice in this. It's actually the athletes who are putting on a show and that's why everyone else is sitting on the board, not the other way around.

As it relates to the NBA, I think it's a crucial part of basketball's future development, as much as it has been for the past 20 years. It's been a blessing to have the NBA within the international environment for the game of basketball. The work Mr. Stankovic and Mr. (David) Stern did to bring all the world together in 1992 has been a game-changer for basketball. But we see also that sitting together formally will help us in giving a new and much-needed impulse to the growth of the game worldwide. It's also going to be an important piece of perception of the rest of the world to basketball. We're often asked: "What's the NBA? Is it part of you?". With the NBA participating in the Central Board, we are telling the rest of the world that basketball is united. We aim at the same objective, which is to grow the game of basketball in the world and to make sure the FIBA Basketball World Cup is the best sport property in the world.


http://www.fiba.com/pages/eng/fc/FIB...aCentBoar.html


FIBA Central Board


The FIBA Central Board is currently composed of 23 members (22 have the right to vote) and meets twice yearly.

The FIBA Central Board has, among other competences, the power to establish the FIBA Internal Regulations. It also assigns the organisation of all FIBA Basketball World Cup.


The current Central Board members are:

Mr. Yvan Mainini (France) President
Mr. Horacio Muratore (Argentina) Vice President
Mr. Patrick Baumann (Switzerland) Secretary General
Mr. Borislav Stankovic (Serbia) Secretary General Emeritus
Mr. Manfred Ströher (Germany) Treasurer
Ms. Valerie Ackerman (USA)
Sheik Saud Bin Ali Al-Thani (Qatar)
Mr. Alphonse Bilé (Ivory Coast)
Mr. Richard Carrión (Puerto Rico)
Mr. Sergei Chernov (Russia)
Mr. Bob Elphinston (Australia)
Mr. Mabusa Eseka Dieudonne (Democratic Republic of Congo)
Mr. Alberto Garcia (Argentina)
Ms. Salamatou Maiga (Mali)
Mr. Usie Richards (US Virgin Islands)
Mr. Jose Luis Saez Regalado (Spain)
Ms. Xu Lan (China)
Mr. Olafur Rafnsson (✝ 19.06.2013) (Iceland)
Mr. Steve Smith (Australia)
Ms. Lena Wallin-Kantzy (Sweden)
Mrs. Barbara Wheadon (New Zealand)
Mr. Hagop Khajirian (Lebanon)
Mr. Kamil Novak (Czech Republic)

Mr. Cyriel Coomans - (Belgium) Observer

----------------------------------------------------------------------


Now, the NBA and NBA player's union also get 6 places and 6 votes. As part of this agreement, they agree to the new schedule, they agree to have the players play during the season, for the qualifications for the tournaments, and they agree officially that the FIBA World Cup is the preeminent world basketball tournament.


So all of you trolling a-holes that have been endlessly lying that this isn't true and was never going to happen, despite the dozens of official articles and reports you have been provided here that it was going to happen - now you can all STFU. Because it did happen, and it's official. Agreed upon by the NBA and the NBA player's union.
