Milos Vujanic will be the next to play NBA,2004/05,for New York,great PG.
It's pitful to watch these "superstar" players from Europe come over and play absolutely no defense whatsoever. It is HALF the game after all. People are too dazzled by flashy plays nowadays to appreciate the little things it takes to win. There's far too many teams and fans that are eager to dump quality players like a Robert Horry in favor of a guy that hit an uncontested 3 and do nothing else.
It was pitful to see the USA team with Marion,Pierce,Davis,Miller,Finley being helpless to face a zone defense,n thinking that just with their muscles n their talent as individual players,not as a team,they will win without problems,ohh,wake up,u lost,3 times
Spain,Serbia n Argentina beat them with a great defense (there are a lot of ways to defend,mainly using inteligence n team work rather than muscles)
There's a lot of individual talent out there but some guys they still think this is an individual game,but if u don't attack n defend as a team,u know,then,[Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] happens,n ur nice american name won't help you.
I would love to see guys like Ginobili,Gasol,Jaric,,Delfino,Oberto playing for LA instead of Horry,Walker,Shaw or Madsen.
Players coming from Europe have a deeper understanding of the game,its tactics n stronger attitude to face challenges.
