Since when the **** is a 16,000 seat arena, that is rated as the most modern one in Europe a "ghetto arena"? The arena has every amenity of a top NBA arena, as it was built for the 2004 Olympics. It's considered state of the art by NBA standards.
It's funny, because you claim NBA players are all "hardcore" and Euroleague players are all "soft". Now you contradict yourself and say Carmelo Anthony couldn't play in such a hardcore environment.
The level of your hypocrisy is truly astonishing.
Fine 2,000. What a superstar playing in front of 2,000. And then they were all kicked out! So playing in front of zero fans! What a superstar!
Hardcore environment!! What kind of star wants to play a game with no fans, flying flares and objects coming from the stands, corrupt or intimated refs? Sounds like players from the third world like Nigeria or something.
You think the best players in the world would want to play in such an environment?? I really feel bad for Hines and all those players who have to play in such low class arenas. Too bad they can't make the NBA with their 20,000+ arenas, first class flights. Imagine being hit by a flare! lol The must realize they are at the bottom of the bottom now!!
