Hardly ... in fact its genuinely VERY accurate. It doesn't have anything to do with race, however. American players are just generally harder nose players.

It's becoming less and less accurate by the year. I don't disagree that in the past the difference in physicality was fairly vast, but it's closing quickly, same way just general overall play started closing fast around 98 or so. It's becoming a genuinely global game, it's not so easy to just look at a guy's name and say how he plays now.

He's a Jew. Therefore, he is also an Israeli citizen.

"Americans can't shoot and can't pass"

Generally true.

Scheyer is a poor man's JJ Redick; he would not have cut it in the league, but he can make lots of $$$ in Europe. Smart move.

Not really. Scheyer was not the scorer that JJ was in college and JJ was never the ball handler/playmaker Scheyer was.

This is speculation, a rumor at this point. Why act like this is a done deal?

When Americans says softies, we mean it in a joking way. Like Euro's enjoy love making instead of sex, and RomCom's. Drinking wine socially and teddy-bears. That kind of soft.
