Watched every EL play off game so far, I really cheer for Zenit, hope they beat Goliath for Barcelona. All other series are boring, I mean Real looked better with switchy bigs Garuba and Tyus yesterday, but they just prolonging the inevitable, Larkin had a really bad game yesterday.
I don't think it is though. Dominique Wilkins reportedly felt that the EuroLeague was much more physically demanding on the body than the NBA was. He reportedly told Bozidar Malkovic that his Panathinaikos practices were harder than dealing with an NBA season.
The point is, that was back in 1995. By now, European coaches really should have let up some on their training demands.
