The USA and NBA have the best players. Basketball isn't just about a collection of players. It's a team game and chemistry matters. All those teams had far greater chemistry than the US.
The question you need to ask yourself is..how come none of those Euroleague stars were anything more than bench players in the NBA?
I don't believe that Gianluca Basile ever played in the NBA. I don't remember him ever being in the NBA.
Also, a lot of NBA starters have gone to the EuroLeague and been terrible players. So ask yourself the question, why is that?
Like who? At their prime? As in they could have been an NBA starter, but then went to Euroleague and sucked?
Are you talking about all the past Euroleague MVP's?
2019 - Jan Vesely - NBA washout
2018- Doncic -- 18 years old.
2017 - Sergio Llull-- very good player, wouldn't start in NBA. That's why he won't come over.
2016 - Nando De Colo - Role player in NBA.
2015 - Bjelica - role player in NBA
2014 - Sergio Rodriguez - role player
2013- Spanoulis - couldn't get off the bench.
Dude, I like the Euroleague. I watch it. It's a very good league. The NBA is still way better.
