Now subtract the "Euro" players who went to college.

In which direction?

I'm sure its true.... but I'd love to see an actual quantitative breakdown of American vs. European players.

Something where a player could have a single metric that would represent a combination of their draft position, effectiveness in the league (PER or whatever kind of amalgamation of statistical relevance), and how long they stayed in the league.

Then, you could take an average value for each draft position, and figure out how often a Euro player and an American player is above/below the average/replacement-value of each spot.

People can forget idea of MInny trading Ricky Rubio. His camp has no designs on bigger market, believe Wolves are invested in his success.

haha. Gotta love the whole "Ricky will never play for MN and will demand a trade" vibe the media was spouting for 2 years. Now, a couple days after he signs, everything is the exact opposite.

The Euroleague game is so different to the NBA, stats don't correlate. They play 10 minute quarters, the game is way more physical and it is way more team oriented, there is exceptional ball movement and more post play instead of the iso's you see in the NBA.

Jennings averaged something like 5 and 1 in the euroleague and then came to the NBA and dropped 55.

That's actually not a bad team. Rubio didn't have a great year in Europe though.
It's a bad team if you're in the West.

You then say he sucked in the 2008 Olympics. Are you serious? Chris Paul averaged 13/5/3 in 24 mins and Rubio averaged 5/5/5 in 28 Mins while being what? 17 years old?

This is ridiculous. You have never seen Rubio play. That is painfully obvious.

Get real. I would destroy Rubio in a one on one game.
