Default Re: Nick Galis: "Euroleague Scrub" That Scored 50 points In A Game Against Michael Jordan

Jordan led a college team dominating every Euro scrubs has to offer.

By 28.3. Points in 1984 Olympics.

Greece never got any medal in Olympic basketball

Even with their American import Galis.

Think about it.

Young raw college boys.

Mopped the floor with grown men

From Europe.

When it comes to the bolded one, and going by the rest of your quote, this must just have been good sportsmanship on behalf of the professionals, letting 19 year old amateur kids beat them...

No, Galis wasn't in his prime in the early 80's, unless you also believe that Jordan was at his absolute prime in '87, because of averaging a career-high in scoring (and that's after an injury, btw). Galis' absolute prime came somewhat late in his career, between '87 and '90 and would last a bit more if he didn't get a pretty serious foot injury that prevented him from playing in the 1990 World Championship. When the injury healed, he still averaged 37.0 ppg for the 1990-91 season, at the age of 34.

Finally, I'm not comparing the 2, but you know damn well that Team USA would still easily win the gold medal with Galis in young Jordan's place and that Greece of the early 80's would still not be a powerhouse with young Jordan in Galis' place.

Hold on

why all of a sudden

Galis is relevant here

Seton never even made to March Madness

When Galis was playing there

You look at Seton Hall retired numbers

you don't see Galis jersey

Hanging around the rafters.

Galis never played for USA

Because he can't even lead team

in the NCAA tournament

Why you putting his numbers in Europe

Like it was supposed to mean something

McAdoo who can't even get an NBA gig

His corpse was transplanted over

and dominated in the same time frame.

26 and 10 and the title.

Something Galis could never accomplished.

LMAO

Ignore LJJ. He is a huge troll. He claimed in another thread that he "watched Galis play in person" and then went on to claim "Adam Morrison and Nick Galis had the same exact skill set and style of play."....................



Never mind that they literally would be polar opposites in how they played.

The guy is just a pure troll.

You don't understand the difference between official competition at the second highest level where there is a lot at stake, and a friendly game of a professional team against college kids? Aaalrighty then...

I said prime, not 'absolute prime'. Nice freestyle extrapolation of what I said. If you don't think Galis was at the start of his prime in 1982, or Jordan was at the start of his prime in 1987, then I don't know what to say.

You must really despise Greek basketball if you think a player, who is not even close to his prime, can average 44 points there.

And you must really think Jordan is god, if you think he was an MVP candidate in the NBA at a time when he was not even close to his prime at all.

Galis' prime was 1987-1990 PERIOD. You are just a troll.

Galis led Greece to a victory over USSR and Sabonis at EuroBasket 1989. The SAME Soviet Union team that won the Olympics gold medal by beating Team USA in 1988. They beat the defending Olympic champions, that not even Team USA could beat.

Greece 1989 > Soviet Union 1988 > USA 1988

During the game, Sabonis had 19 points, while Galis had 45 points.


Box Score: Greece 81 - USSR 80 - Galis 45 Points - Sabonis 19 Points


Video:

(Galis is wearing the #4 white jersey)

(Sabonis is wearing the #11 red jersey)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94X7oyzlfeY


Sabonis, "the greatest European player of all time", averaged 16.4 points per game during the tournament, while Galis averaged 36.5 points per game.


Sabonis: 16.4 PPG

Galis: 36.5 PPG

The 72-10 Bulls were 2-2 against the Pacers in the regular season. Therefore Reggie Miller = Michael Jordan...

You are a perfect example of a stat scout. You know nothing about basketball. You are either a glutton for punishment or mentally handicapped. Keep it coming though. It's some of the only entertainment we get in absence of the NBA season.
