    well indeed. mediterranean guys are more enthusiastic than germans etc..but i am speaking about societies,countries,historical facts...this is a general view..i am not speaking about our microcosm...as i mentioned before a large minority of muslim countries has many common cultural characteristics with us*

    (spaniards,italians,french of the south,greeks)...

    I made the exact same stereotype after I met you, Ricky-boy.

    I'm going to temporarily close this thread. If anybody wants to discuss Europe versus Asia, start a thread in the UN forum. If people want to talk about what Granger's comments mean for basketball, join the conversation when it is re-opened.

    Mods, go ahead and re-open this thread after a few hours. Or whenever you want.

In a book, they write they find a skeleton of [an] eagle and there is no fish. It means that the fish beat him and killed him, but he didn't let go." -- Donatas Motiejunas

    Major update: I stopped by the DC Turkish festival (http://www.turkishfestival.org/) today and am pleased to report that the odor of the attendees ranged from neutral to pleasant. Of course this was a non-representative sample of Turks on a cool day, but it was still encouraging.

    FIBA EURO BASKET will find a way to spin this. Something like, deodorants make non-Euro players play the wrong way or something.
    If there is no basketball in heaven, i am NOT going.

    I got this 24. Paul George is going to be the best wing player in this draft class within 3 years. He's actually a lot more versatile player then Granger was in College and has a real shot at being the second coming of T. Mac.

    If we turn to Danny,nothing to reply,just very stupid comment and discussing about it serving his stupidity...

    anonimus,your general comments are very objective and nice but i felt that your knowledge is weak

    Turkish modernization started in 1850's(even can be 1810-20's) and got highly accelerated after 1923.So all u see is not the result of last 10 years.Result of long process.

    By the way,thanks to Danny that we are having some cultural discussion...
