Default Nicolas "Euroleague Pippen" Batum = 6.33 Turnovers Per Game In Euroleague

According to this forum, Nicolas Batum is the, "Euroleague Scottie Pippen". Also according to this forum, he is "the greatest Euroleague SF of all time".

Well, "Euroleague Scottie", the "GOAT", is averaging 6.33 turnovers per game in the Euroleague. Leading the league by a whopping 1.7:1 ratio.

If you don't believe me, I have the stats and link to prove it:

http://www.euroleague.net/main/stati...gory=Turnovers

Also, interestingly enough, Batum, "one of the best perimeter wing defenders in the NBA", is being derided for playing horrible defense so far in the Euroleague.


Hmm...strange.

BTW, Batum now has a new nickname in Europe. He is now being referred to as, "LeTurnover".

Actually, AK47 is the greatest Euroleague SF of all time. And Batum only has so many turnovers because his teammates are too shit to catch his passes. Euroleague Scottie, more like Euroleague Larry Bird.

He's also the greatest Russian basketball player of all time. And as well as the greatest nickname of all time.

As a Blazer fan, the turnovers don't surprise me. Ball handling is one of his biggest weaknesses, which is why he is not a primary ball handler in Portland. The rest of his stats are pretty nice though in Euroleague

looking unguardable off the dribble like MJ
dominating and dunking over guys in the post like Shaq
running the pick and roll like Nash
making passes in the post like Magic
scoring in the open court like Scottie
making pull up threes like T-Mac

oh lawd, he could be the GOAT when it's all done

but seriously...these are things you really didn't see much out of him in the NBA (reduced to a spot up shooter most of the time). hopefully it's more due to him actually improving instead of shytty euroleague competition because he's one of my favorite young players in the league.

I hope this means he will start kicking butt for Portland more consistently. Hopefully he doesn't just fall in love with international ball and want to leave the NBA.

Batum is shooting 36% from the field in Euroleague and 30% from 3 point range. Yes, you are right, he is clearly the "Larry Bird of Euroleague".

Actually, you are an idiot.

Really? Batum's shooting percentages:

36.4 FG%
30.0 3 PT FG%

It's a bit better than Rubio's shooting numbers in Euroleague, but just barely. And Rubio is considered the worst shooter in Euroleague history.

I'm not too worried about that. The important part is that he is being aggressive. That is the part I really hope translates when he comes back to the NBA.
