Default Who would have thunk it.Rudy Fernandez and Jordan Farmar leading top Euroleague teams

Fernandez leading 1st place Real Madrid (7-1) in points, steals and tied for 2nd in assists.

Farmar leading 1st place Anadolu Efes (7-1) in points and assists.

Only one other Euroleague team has as good a record (FC Barcelona).

Both Fernandez and Farmar are pretty much locks for an all-Euroleague team selection and are in the running for Euroleague MVP.

This brings up a larger question. I'm not sure how they are being paid in Euroleague but if it is anything equal to their NBA salaries we might see a situation were more NBA back-ups choose to play in Europe.

I mean would you rather be a back-up in the NBA or a super-star in Europe? Some of these players Bobby Brown, Fernandez, Krstic, Farmar, etc...have gone from being back-ups and scrubs in the NBA to the top players on the top teams in Euroleague.

I mean if it was you and the pay was the same would you rather be a back-up in Portland or a super star in Madrid?

There might come a time when the 2nd units in the NBA are weaker than the starting line-ups of the top Euroleague teams. Just a thought to throw out there.

I thought Jordan Farmar would have had long career in the NBA.

He could still be in the NBA if he wanted to. He is probably making as much money being one of the top players in Euroleague than he could being a back-up in the NBA. He is only 26 so he could still come back to the NBA, he probably just wants to pad his resume by being one of the top Euroleague players.

You underestimate Euroleague. The top Euroleague players are as good as NBA back-ups so you will see more NBA back-ups (Farmar, Weems, Fernandez, etc...) going back and forth between the NBA and Euroleague.

It's actually called Barcelona Basquet or Barcelona Basket. Although for some reason Euroleague never uses the actual name.
