Maybe it can be debatable if an allstar european team could compete with an allstar american team, but to compare the leagues is ****ing freak.

Jordan, Kareem, Bird, Magic, Wilt, Russell... talent the euro leagues have never had.

Ever wonder why McAdoo said Galis was better than Bird and Magic?

Ever wonder why Barkley said Petrovic was the best foreign player in NBA history?

In Europe, hardly anyone is watching the NBA as it either comes on tape delay on some strange pay per view channels, or way late at night or early in the morning when no one can watch it.

Yeah but they have teams that can pay 25 million dollars for KB and 20 for Gasol.

Europe doesnt have money. Its not an interesting market, basket is not a very popular sport compared to others. Its a fact.

The NBA lost $1.845 billion in the last 5 years. It loses between $300-$350 million every season.

The NBA lockout is going on because the NBA will be bankrupt and cease to exist without drastic cuts to player's pay and the budgets of the teams.

Every season, between 22-24 NBA teams lose money. Last year, 23 NBA teams lost money. The NBA had to take out a $225 million bank loan last year, just so the NBA teams could pay their players.

FYI, the Euroleague netted $125 million last season.

NBA -$300 million profits
Euroleague +$125 million profits

last year.

You are right, the NBA is clearly winning in the money department.

So why dont clubs in Europe spend money in basketball? Why all the (lets say 50) highest paid players in the world play overseas?

First of all, under the new NBA contract those salaries will no longer exist.

Secondly..........those salaries are GROSS amounts. It's literally like half that much, counted in the European salary.

That is NOT how much the player's net. So actually, you can say Kobe makes maybe $10 million in the NBA going forward.

Of course you would have to know something about the NBA other than just marketing and hype to be able to grasp this.

Besides all of that, what is your point? Only about 4-5 teams in the entire NBA can afford to exist under the current economic system. If you really think that players will be making $25 million (or that this figure is net) then you are delusional.

As Kobe said himself, he only needed about 5.5 million euros salary in Europe (net) to equal what he would make in NBA in the years going forward. And just 7 for what he made in the old NBA CBA.

So yeah, you seriously exaggerate about how much "money" NBA has.

LMAO. Galis.

The corpse of McAdoo dominated that league

Won the title and Final Four MVP.

Galls never won anything in Euroleague.

Kukoc was better in Europe.

But a role player in the next level

You should really answer these questions instead of just posing an irrelevant question as a response. It makes it seem like you're too butthurt to even answer. Start with this one though:
