Re: No League for Old Men

Nope. This isn't happening. This is my thread to taunt Adam with, not some dumb talk about how there's some unknown superstar in the North Korean basketball association who hasn't got a fair shot yet.

We can make another thread for that.

Re: No League for Old Men

Kinda wanted to see JBKB and the Doc duke it out some more. It's like getting high. More of a paint-huffing high than the chronic, but an alternate reality nevertheless.

He's an idiot. "If Tony Parker was still in France then some of the best players would be in Europe"....Umm duh that's why he's in the NBA. He might be full retard...gotta wait to find out.

The main point I was making is that the NBA does not comprise the best players. Surely there are players across the world who are better than Kurt Thomas, Jason Kidd, Kyle Korver, Shannon Brown, and lots more.

Just because a great player from another country doesn't want to leave his native land to come play in the NBA, it doesn't mean he isn't among the best of players. Just my two cents!

Re: No League for Old Men

No, they would if they could. There are no players that could really make it in the NBA in Europe/Asia or South America. You see guys who could barely make the d league here lead teams in all major categories in Europe.

No players is false. If prigoni can debut as a 35 year old he could of 10 years ago too.

There are at least 10 players in foreign leagues that could be rotation players here but choose not to. La Bamba only played one season and decided he liked Europe better. Doesn't help that he was in a town like Memphis, Wisconsin.

Actually I was in Memphis in July. It was a good town for being in the south.

Your post I quoted said nothing about money. You were basically saying everyone in Europe wasn't good enough to come here.

Re: No League for Old Men

Ok, one caveat, which is very rare, if they get paid more.

Re: No League for Old Men

I'm very shocked that some people would actually think that there are no players across the world who are better than many of the current NBA players.

The NBA actively recruit players from around the world, so it would be silly to think there aren't any more great players around the world that the NBA are unsuccessful in persuading to leave their home country.

By the way, everyone doesn't care about the money. There are millionaires who absolutely love their job as janitors and don't mind cleaning restrooms, mopping floors, and emptying trash regardless of being rich.
