He was in the championship last year and he did dominate Josh Childress. So Casspi has accomplished more than Nicolas Batum, Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Parker or the other european projects did in europe. I think you prepare to play for the nba by playing in the nba. From what I saw with his workout in Sacramento he's already adjusting the weaknesses in his game.

I totally agree with this sentence. The game is so different compared to European basketeball that you can only be prepared playing there. So it is generally good for the players to go there soon to be really able to succeed. Very few players like Toni Kukoc have been able to do it if they arrive the US as grown players.

I also agree but i wouldnt go as far as saying very few have succeeded as already made layers,I can think of Radja,petrovic,sabonis,calderon,stojakiovic,Navarr o(even though he saw the light after 1 year),Rudy,etc etc.
Rudy to do a Navarro-like U-turn?

I'm already sick of the Casspi and "the first israeli in the nba" thing. It's practically an identity thing and I think anyone that takes their identity from what someone else does needs to re-evaluate themselves. I've given up on the nba and David Stern's antics a long time ago. I'm more interested in discussing the new innovations euroleague teams are trying.

The ACB is not happy with the euroleague,with the innovations.
As for TAU ,they seem to have signed one of Spain's best young players in Pau Ribas and could be on their way to signing Olesen too who has been one of ACB's best player last year.

What new innovations are happening this upcoming season?

Are the 3 point line being further back and the inclusion of the restricted area and bigger court a part of these innovations?
