So what your saying the best European Players in history are scrubs in the NBA? And something like top 5 in the European players is something we should take seriously?

I'm talking about the first game when he went 2/11 for 4pts and had 7 to's. Pippen and Jordan completely decimated him. They didn't give a shit the 2nd time they played as they had already destroyed him.

Funny thing was they call him the Magic Johnson of Europe. Then he got in the NBA, he can't even carry Magic jockstrap.

And this

Vassilus Spanoulis : They call me the TMac of Europe.

Jeff Van Gundy : we have the real TMac here, sit your asss up, you're a turnover machine.

Kukoc's nicknames in Europe were The Pink Panther and The Waiter.

Spanoulis' nicknames in Europe are Kill Bill and Most Vassilis Player (MVP).

What you posted is made up bullshit by lying NBA only fans. No one in Europe ever called them that. Mother****ers like you just made that shit up and lied about it.
