Have you seen a game Pre 1996?

Mike Fratello: "It's a more physical game over here. NBA rules helped change the game that brought scoring up. This is a man's game over here."


Mike Fratello: "I'm very anxious to see the reaction from the NBA players that come over here. They'll be awakened to the style of bball."


Take a Bow Czar!!!

finally, some one got pair of testicles big enough to say it as it is.

Even after NBA changed it to completely sissy rules to benefit scoring, Kobe still cannot dominate the game fully & gets overshadowed by Lebron, Wade, Iverson, Durant easily.

So much for Jordan wannabe Copy Cryant in sissy era!

believe me, I'm old enough to have watched games from the 80's...NBA was always about iso ball and individual qualities of the players. Euro ball is completely different and it revolves arround setting millions of screens, picks and constant players movement off the ball. Current NBA game can't be much further from what you would call a "classical" style of play

It was in Spanish and French newspapers. Stop pretending that this is not well known, because it is.

Euroleague is a lot more physical inside than the NBA is. Many times players are being fouled (as in what is a foul in the NBA) around the basket, while shooting, or fighting for rebounds and there are no whistles. While it is rare that any well-known NBA player does not get a whistle if there is contact near the basket.

In the NBA, a guy like Dwight Howard complains about not getting enough free throws, when he would be getting less in Euroleague.

Amazing how the "soft" Americans hold Gold Medals at every level of International competition in the entire World. There literally isn't a single International title/accolade that isn't currently in control of the USA. Complete World domination in the sport of Basketball... and last FIBA tournament we even sent our B-squad.

Can someone remind me why Euroleague didn't stop posting after USA ran through FIBA with their B team after constantly guaranteeing they wouldn't?

The tournaments were rigged. Plus the USA was 4th at the 3 on 3 in the junior Olympics.

Proof or gtfo.

You can't say "There's no way this US team does anything!" then after they dominate, you change your tune to "It's all rigged you racist!"

Joakim Noah on the FIBA EuroBasket:

"The competition level is very high. In the NBA, the European game has a reputation of being less physical and soft. That is not true, it is more physical. There is more team play and the no defensive three seconds rule changes a lot of things. In the NBA, you know where the shots will come from. Here, they take shots from everywhere. The game is more intelligent. There is less space, you have to be in the right place at the right time."
