Dennis Rodman was a janitor when he was 19.

And got fired for stealing while on the clock.

Every single player who played significant minutes in both leagues shoots way better in Euroleague.

All that "tough defense" must be why, right?

Surely someone of note went from nothing to something.

What the hell?

What part of European scrubs/role players did you not grasp?

3rd to 4th best player on an NBA team?

Wow..............amazing going from like the 10th best on a team in Europe.

You do realize that I can bring up many more examples right?

And Schea Cotton was the best 16 year old player and never made it to NBA.

Pippen was a late bloomer.

No one even recruited Westbrook

until he grew some more inches in his senior year.

Are you trying to claim that Casspi was more important in Euroleague than he is in the NBA?

Yeah, sure compares to scrubs or role players from Europe instantly becoming NBA starters.

You must be joking.

I understand that Parker started the last 5 years in the NBA. Because unlike you, I have actually seen NBA games.
