Exclamation FACT CHECK: EUROLEAGUE courts are SMALLER than NCAA and WNBA courts?



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basketball_court

Looked it up on Wikipedia so to be safe I'm wondering if Euroleague can clear this issue up and deny this to save face for his beloved league... According to Wiki it says like the court size is smaller than American NCAA courts and barely larger than an American High School court (and actually it's Narrower than a High School court ).

IS THIS TRUE?


If we aren't supposed to believe that Euroleague is a league for tweener talents who weren't athletic or talented enough to play on full size American NBA courts than why the heck do they play on a tweener sized court

If these facts are wrong please feel free to correct them. If these facts are true than I'm seriously starting to doubt the validity of Euroleague "talent"

They are talented... not as talented as the NBA of course but they can still ball. If its that easy then why don't you go over there and make some money?

No, it is not true. Euroleague courts are now actually the same exact size as NBA courts.

What is true, is that the NBA ball is lighter and smaller than the Euroleague ball.

Also, that the Euroleague uses double rims, while the NBA does not.

Euroleague 3 point line is closer.

Euroleague allows hand checking and a true zone. No defensive 3 seconds in Euroleague.

Games in Euroleague are 40 minutes.

You get 3 steps in NBA, but just 2 in Euroleague.

Other than that, the rules are pretty much the same now.

Did they change the court size of Euroleague to full blown NBA size before, or after Anthony Parker made his impact on the league? Serious question.

That's outdated. The court size is the same now.

That's a double rim.
Eurloleague courts are the same size as NBA now. 3pt lines still short though.

The NBA gets three steps, and the Euros get two? I think you have that backwards (although some might argue that NBA stars get 4 or more.)
