Apparently, he learned, and is now a middling NBA point guard. Wow.

So, he learned something in Europe? That's not normal

Of course he did! European players have very good fundamentals.

I remember watching Casspi in Eurobasket 2007 qualification and thinking "this guy is horrible", for me Elyiahu and the other PG that was in Maccabi were much more talented then him ..
He developed so quicky, it's amazing.

How about this.....

Jerebko = role player on a small club in a mid level European league

= starter in NBA

Casspi = role player on Maccabi

= role player in NBA with better stats and more important to his team


Of course, I would never expect any American NBA only fan to be aware of anything basketball non-NBA related.

The best player on that list is the 3rd or 4th best player on a below average team after going to europe for no reason but not being able to go to college.....and two of them are among the biggest flops in history. and this is your euroscrub to good nba player list?

Surely someone of note went from nothing to something.

That's nice, but doesn't really address anything I actually said. Kind of just deflects it with other information. You call a role playing starter a "role player" in one context, and a "starter" in another. Seems unusual...

Jan hasn't played an NBA game.
Brandon Jennings is a middling NBA point guard.

Where are you going with this?

Are you freaking for real?

Naming any American in Europe as a "dominant Euroleague player"?

Are you freaking for real not even knowing that dozens of scrubs/role players in Europe (many in lower tier leagues even) were drafted by the NBA (some in lotto) and some even became NBA starters?

You call yourself an NBA fan and are that incredibly lacking in basic NBA knowledge?

Are you for real? Where are you going with all the trolling you do here?

Yeah, which is good for him. He was like 19 though in 2007, so a lot of players get infinitely better from 19-23.

The fact that he moved to a league where defense is outlawed helped.
