Big men in Euroleague that are better than Lampe...are,
In no order:
About the same level as Lampe,
Fran Vazquez used to be about the same level as Lampe, but he was awful last year.
I'm not sure about guys like John Bryant, Salah Mejri, Bryant Dunston and Cedric Simmons, because this will be their first year in Euroleague.
If you want to claim Lampe as a top 5-10 big then that is fine. But you are going way overboard in saying he's the best. Sorry, but no way in hell is he as good as guys like Kyle Hines, Ioannis Bourousis, Ante Tomic, and really not Krstic either, even though Krstic is also really bad at defense.
I said one of the best and I forgot about Tomic, I would probably take Tomic over Lampe because I like his game more.
Hines is a midget and not on Lampe's level.
Bourousis, forget it.
Lasme, forget him as well.
Sasha Kaun is a ****ing scrub.
It's close to last one, probably slightly stronger overall. But there is no way Macedonia got better.
I didn't say Macedonia got better. I disagreed with the claim that they definitely got worse. They are pretty much the same exact team as they were, with the Stojanovski brothers now being more experienced.
They didn't get better, but they are not worse either.
maybe they are better in NBA type of ball, but surely not under international set of rules
Some of these guys....good god the idiocy.
Freaking Jerebko was an average role player on freaking Biela in the Italian League.
Oh yeah, this guy is CLEARLY way better than any Greek player. Coach Itoudis had him in the Pistons training camp and said he would make a good THIRD string power forward for Panathinaikos.
Jerebko would not get selected over Printezis, Kaimakoglou, or Fotsis. He would not make the Greek NT.
Taylor would not get selected over Papanikolaou or Perperoglou. He would not make the Greek NT either. Hell, I would even take Bramos over him. Bramos is more athletic, he's a better finisher, he is a better defender, and he's a better shooter.
And this clown actually thinks Jerebko, Lampe and Taylor are better than Spanoulis..................unbelievable how delusional some of these morons here are.
