LeBron should have decided to take his talents to Barcelona.

They'd win at least 10 Euroleague championships.

LOL @ European guys on the realgm. You are killing me boys! You were telling Splitter and Pekovic are way better than many starting centers in the NBA last season and we now see how they turn out to be. Try some logic before you talk.

Look at it this way, Bargnani, Calderon and Kleiza are on the Raptors and we still suck, those 3 would beast the EL.

This is almost as funny as a "If LA Galaxy was in the English Premiership" thread.

The better question is can they get to double digit in wins


:lol: You're a joke. It's probably the best european team ever assembled. They have great chemistry, great shooters, athleticism, very good role players, and serious NBA talent. They probably don't make it in the west. In the east however? Yes, they have a good chance. Kobe seems to think the same. I guess he's also an idiot. (Are you a Kobe fan, aren't you? Maybe i'm mistaken).


im a joke? you think a team that plays once a week, is filled with shooters, and plays with different rules would make the playoffs in the freakin NBA.

what did fernandez and navarro do in the nba? LOL 12 ppg

Rubio sucks but they do not need him anyway. My prediction would be the 7 seed. Behind Miami, Boston, Orlando, Atlanta, Chicago, Bucks.

Well after some succes in draft lottery they would may make it one day.

The idea would be based on the assumption that teamwork along with a few NBA caliber players would lead to success, but that teamwork is based on different rules and style of play than in the NBA. So, they would have to adjust too much in one given year. The best way for them to win would be to give the ball to Ricky and let him run.

Wow, how ignorant are we..
Just an example - Christian Eyenga, the current Cavs rotation player could barely play in the Spanish second league last season

The Nets won 12 games last year with a couple of good ball players on their team in Harris and Lopez. That team in general was more acclimated and knew how to play an American style of basketball.

And I'm supposed to believe a team used to international rules and who play in the 2nd best Basketball league(And that's a distant 2nd) would win more than 5? It wasn't my intention to sound disrespectful, but I just don't think you are giving the NBA enough credit.

Barcelona also has some very good players (Navarro, Lorbek) and 12 men deep team.. Everyone of those 12 can step up and decide a game..
Also.. They would get accustomed to NBA rules quite soon - if NBA players can accustom to international rules, i dont see a reason why a team so full of BBIQ (Navarro, Rubio, Lakovič, Lorbek, Michael) would not..
Just check my sig and check the result of that game.And yes.. It was a preseason game for Barca as well..

1. He was a second round pick
2. He was second among rookies in scoring (if I recall)
3. He left when Gasol got traded.

Anyone doubting Navarro's skillset don't know anything about basketball.

Navarro could have been an OJ Mayo type of player with slightly worse defense - this is his ceiling, he'd probably be a bit worse. A scoring combo to bring off the bench, a starting 2 as long as paired with a very big 1 or a starting 1 as long as paired with a point-forward like LeBron James or Kobe.

one of the best players from Europe would be a liability already. how many Kobe and lebrons are in the league? i don't like mayo but don't insult his athleticism and skill like that.
