I never said he was a great player. The point of the thread is that in hundreds of posts here, people are lying and saying no NBA players played in '92 and none of the international players were any good.

Heal was not a great player and I never said he was. But he was an NBA player and he was better than anyone on the current Australian team, except maybe David Andersen.

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.

Toni Kukoc was basically just a poor mans Pippen who couldn't rebound or play defense. Toni starting after Grant left is one of the reasons Scottie had to carry the 95 team defensively so much. Kukoc was a horrendous defensive player.

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.


It's true. You're just ashame because Spanoulis can not beat Luther Head and Skip on Rockets rotation. Just another scrub who can't play on the next level.

Sure there were some good players on that tournament, Croatia even fielded 3-4 good players. But that doesn't make them a good team yet. Team USA faced a couple good individuals in 1992, but not a single good team.

Those are idiots who are trying to rile you up.
Let it go man.
We know if Greece had qualified, they would've beaten the US team.

'92 Croatia and '92 Lithuania were as good or better than every single international team in the current Olympics. You are about 12 years old if you don't know that.

I don't think the Greek team that was at the qualification tournament would have beaten the US. But if Greece qualified they were going to add in Schortsanitis and Koufos to the team.

That team probably would have beaten the US.

The best Greek team, with Diamantidis or Perperoglou added in, surely would beat them.
