1. It's Euroleague, not "EuroLeague".
2. The odds of him playing in a Euroleague club? I don't know. Seems not too good for now, seeing as how he has been playing for awhile in Europe already and in decent leagues like Eurocup, Adriatic League, Greek League, and yet no Euroleague team signed him.
I think Nymbuk plays now in United League and Eurocup, so those are still good leagues though. Not to Euroleague level, but right below it. I don't think his team can qualify to Euroleague. They are not good enough to win Eurocup, and they can't qualify to Euroleague through the qualification round. They failed to make it this year and last year.
I guess if he wants to play in Euroleague he needs to try to get with a French or German club, or maybe with Maccabi or Malaga. A team like that, as they tend to value American players more than other European teams it seems.
I would take him over some Euroleague point guards, but probably it's his playing style that some coaches don't like. Because he can often get the ball from one end of the court, then dribble all the way down to the other end of the court and shoot, without passing the ball.
I agree with you though, he is really exciting and fun to watch. I remember a couple dunks he did in Greek League that were just wow......and he plays really fast. The guy is so fast with the dribble.
He's probably the kind of player that Maccabi's coach would like. Not sure though if he's what other Euroleague teams look for in a point guard. If he was able to defend the two position and would play off the ball some, then he could definitely get offers. But he's kind of a unique player, just stuck as a shooting guard style player that always has the ball and only guards the one.
