Default NBA Teams vs Euro Teams

The NBA, in an effort to expand globally, as always, is playing exhibition games against Euro teams. Questions I have:

Can somebody tell me how good these Euro teams are and notables on their teams?

Do they play NBA rules or Euro rules?

How much weight do you put into these exhibition games?

Are FIBA's televised? (off topic)

Does anybody have NBA League Pass? If so, why isn't it continued into summer as it was last year? (off topic)

I personally know nothing about this either, I'm pretty sure they televize it on NBA TV though, Real Madrid's probably the best team there.

any NBA team in regular season form would probably destroy any EuroLeague team. you'd maybe see an upset or two with an awful NBA team but even that would probably be rare.

there's been a handful of NBA losses going back to the 80s (Atlanta, Toronto, Philly, i think even Magic's Lakers etc) but thats just preseason.

seeing the awful Sixers preseason squad kill the reigning Euro League champs last year was hilarious.

there's been preseason losses to foreign teams for as long as i've been watching the NBA.

Dominique's Hawks lost to the Russians.
Ewing's Knicks barely beat Spain (i think) one year.
Magic's Lakers lost to a team before im pretty sure if i remember correctly.

Toronto lost that, Philly lost to Madrid but then killed the Euro champs a week later, Clippers lost last year too i think. nothing new.

I have the same problem!! They told us if we wanted it back for the summer, we'd have to buy extra sports packages, which are well over $100. It's best to wait until September, I guess.
