a few days ago, magic johnson was talking about the "euro" attitude and how it prevents you from playing to your maximum aggressiveness while discussing yao ming with the tnt krew. and then he went on to say that manu ginobili is the only one who goes against this stereotype. do you agree? who else you think could be listed as "one tough euro"?

Kirilenko-Watch him. Seriously.

Krstic-Great hustle even if he's often outmatched in the post. Always seems to give it 110% on the court.

Gasol if he really breaks out this season and can lead his team past the first round.

Jacikevicius-From past history.

Other Mentions:

Nocioni, Varejao..

Saras for the Pacers. He was trash talking "dream" teamers long before he came over here. He's a very fiery player.

Also Nocioni.

I think the South American playes in general are a little nastier than most. Nene isn't exactly the nicest guy on the block either. And Verejao plays like a wild man too.

NO, but their basketball background comes from Europe. If you've followed them you'd know that.

Also I believe Magic is reffering to "international players" in general, not just "euro's".

The talk was "euro attitude" which could be applied to any international player. Yao Ming was being talked about and last I heard China wasnt a stop on a Eurorail package.

If Magic Johnson says that Argentina and China are part of europe, then by god, they are part of europe. Maybe when you get some championships you can contradict the magic man. Until then, his word is the law.

Najera.

I think he's more of what americans would call "scrappy" player.

Joel Pryzbilla would fit the description....if you consider him a Euro....He is from the Eastern Euro region but play college ball for Minnisota......so that's your call.
But he does not let anyone push him around and play tough basketball....

Najera is in no way a euro player or product. He played in the U.S. in college and is from Mexico.

One person that hasn't been mentioned: Mikael Pietrus.
