To people who watched more of Euroleague and Efes in particular, how did Garuba compare to other perimeter defenders they faced? Where would you rank Efes among the all-time best offensive teams in Europe?

I knew Garuba was a very good defender, but I was surprised that when switched on Larkin, Larkin wouldn't even try ISO on Garuba, he would just pass the ball out, Garuba's defense is legit, no one even tried to play him one on one. I don't think Efes' offense is all time great, they had 2 dominant guards, very clutch veteran in Simon and great defenisve bigs Dunston and Singleton, team was just put together at genius fashion, they werent the most dominant offense or most dominant defense, but they had individuals who when it mattered, was there for both ends, they won it despite subpar coaching in my opinion.

All-time best offense thing may've been a knee-jerk reaction to how they obliterated Fenerbahce in game 1 of the Turkish finals. Still, Garuba's ability to throw a wrench in it was really impressive to me. I think he'll surprise people with his immediate defensive impact in the NBA next year.

Also feeling less concerned about Sengun's struggles against them. Scouts will scrutinize that film, but they may not realize what an unstoppable 2-way force Efes is in Europe (let alone compared to any team the NCAA prospects faced).

watching ACB, Vincent Poirier is still great after sitting 2 years on NBA bench, I guess when you cant shoot or switch, you will not play in the NBA at all, but in Europe dude is a force.

Where do you find Euroleague usage rate stats?
So many people who attain the heights of power in this culture—celebrities, for instance—have to make a show of false humility and modesty, as if they got as far as they did by accident and not by ego or ambition.
