Marcus Brown/Trajan Langdon
Anthony Parker/Andrés Nocioni

Europeans

The idea was around when FIBA run the Euroleague tournament and as far as I remember few All-Star games were made. But when ULEB took over the EL, there was not talk about any All-Star event.

BTW this year FIBA makes pathetic All-Star game in their league between americans and Europe... but who plays in FIBA Europe League... nobody... (nobody worth mentioning).

If it would be made from both european and american guys, who play in here, they could really become a decent team after normal practicing of course. Americans alone arent that strong and Europeans alone wouldnt last whole long 82 games season, cause they arent keen on that.

You're wrong. There're some interesting players in FIBA's Europe League. Abdul-Rauf, Eurelijus Zhukaukas, for example.

Well, sure there are few players, mostly on those Russian teams which should play in higher level competition, but cant due Russian federation's decision.

But compare Abdul-Rauf with Greer or Zukauskas with Sabonis...

Ed cota?No way.Horace Jenkins,look his stats
Well, I think we both are biased on this (if you are from Greece)... I have never seen Jenkins play, but Cota is awesome most of time. He runs the team very great, his ball handling is best in Europe and this season he at last started making shots from outside. He won few games on buzzer for us. Hes very great fit for Zalgiris with not selfish game, smart decisions and great passing skills.

Zalgirinis- do you live in the US? Where? My roommate in college was from Kaunas and was a big fan of Zalgiris. He has dual citizenship now though and has live here for 8-9yrs.
