Playing in Eurocup is a freaking joke to everyone in Europe. The only people taking these NBA players seriously that are playing there are American NBA only fans that literally know nothing about anything basketball related.

Show me where Dirk is going to sign. I would like to read the article.

Do you honestly believe they are afraid? You're not trolling or anything. This is something you honestly believe?

The NBA is also a minor league then, since it pays most players less than they make in Europe.

All those NBA players are obviously scared for the stars of the Euroleague.

Making less money, yet they still all rather play in the best league when they get the chance. Who doesn't want to play in the NBA, Right? As Spanoulis once told us...

Yes Euroleague title is a dream

For all American players

They will get homecoming parade

Like Anthony Parker

And get the Best Scrub Citizen Award

And franchise player type of contract

And be mention on the same breath

With Ear Jordan

Win MVP

You will forever in Euroleague lore

Americans will talk about you

You will never fade away from obscurity

Like Joseph Blair

LMAO

Barcelona is a top candidate to win every FIBA trophy as it is, so why risk their future?

they should do it because if the nba is cancelling the whole season, the league will be severely damaged and euroleague and ACB must do everything they can to steal a piece of the basketball cake.

you start by getting all the nba superstars you can to play this season in europe, that way you get sponsors and media attention, and european leagues can grow and narrow the gap with NBA just a little.

also this way, players can see that playing in europe is not that bad, and superstars in their primes already would have done it, setting a precedent.


also, spanish media report real madrid going for dwight howard and/or lamarcus alridge (real madrid trailblazers with rudy, sergio and alridge )

Fair argument, but in terms of quality players produced European basketball is closing the gap little by little every year because of a better development system for youth players.

How is the gap closing when the last european players to have a major impact in Nba were drafted in 2001(Parker,Pau).Europe hasnt produced anythin but solid starters(Marc Gasol,Deng,Batm) or role players ever since.
