Default Question for Euroleague: Which current and past NBA players would thrive in Europe?

Hey there buddy, I asked you this question in another thread, and completely forgot what thread it was, so I can't find your answer. I have noticed that you are quite negative when you talk about NBA players in Europe, so I would like to see you compile a list of past and present players you think would dominate in Europe.

I expect you to say one on one players who can also work off the ball will work well. So guys like Charles Barkley and Kobe Bryant.

Let's see your list. Not trolling or looking to argue, I'm just wondering what you think.

Thanks,

Hondo

In today's Euroleague no player can dominate though. Regardless of what country they are from. So the answer to your question is no one. And that includes all European players.

I'm convinced that Kyle Korver would be able to lead his team to Euroleague titles.

Trajan Langdon could do it, and Korver plays similar level of defense and almost the same driving ability.

BUT Korver is a much better shooter and at 6'6 would have a size advantage on most Euroleague shooting guards.

I think he would get 20 ppg in Europe

That's because there aren't any Euroleague players that are talented enough to take over games and dominate consistently.

All of the Euroleague players who consistently dominate like Scola, Marc Gasol, Pau Gasol or Anthony Parker find their way to the NBA

I didn't say dominate. I said thrive.

Which NBA players would thrive in Europe? Which past players? Which current Euro players would thrive in the NBA?

I say this because ISH posters love to label guys like Sonny Weems as the Michael Jordan of Europe, when in reality a lot of NBA stars are struggling there.

Kyle Korver, 20ppg? He couldn't even do it in college.... 17.8 ppg was his high.
