He could have joined a shit team that allowed him to do whatever he wanted and he would still have been a joke in the NBA.

Plenty of guys get by in the NBA with less athleticism
Plus, he's a big point. He's like Deron Williams size, and he's wasn't any less athletic. Jose Calderon is a starter in this league....

What is the point of your thread OP? The guy was a great player in the Euroleague. The same league were a below average NBA player in Anthony Parker won two Euroleague MVPs. The NBA is the highest level. No way does he have the same impact in the NBA. Are you going to dispute this?

Players in the NBA aren't necessarily the most skilled. They are there because they are a certain height and possess a certain level of athleticism. Skills alone doesn't get you to the NBA. The most skilled player to ever live would get destroyed in the NBA if he's 5'6" and not very athletic. He could do everything perfectly yet the disparity in height, length and athleticism would just overwhelm whatever this guy does.

Yes, but this guy was a 6'4" 210 point guard with quick feet.

The guy can obviously play. Euroleague is a high level of basketball. I'm just saying he won't have nearly the same impact in the NBA as he did in the Euroleague.

Obviously. He was the best player some seasons in the Euroleague. He might not have ever been an NBA all-star, but he definitely could play.

Should be in the International forum. All anyone's going to do is reference his failed stint in the NBA and they'd be right to do so since this is an NBA forum.

PS - EL, you are far and away the cat's ass when it comes to trolling. The rage you bring out in people and the absurd, over-the-top way in which you express your own rage is award-worthy.

OP, it all comes down to Spanoulis not doing shit in the best league in the world. Until he does something worthwhile there, nobody will care.

Euroleague is essentially the international version of the d-league. Some make it to the NBA, some don't. The only real difference is it pays more so the betas can run back to it if they suck in the NBA.
