    As you are also mentioning the players from 70's, I believe it should also include a Lithuanian Modestas Paulauskas who was the captain of USSR team that became 5 times European, once Olympic and World champion. Would have been a definite NBA-er back then if allowed. Pure talent.

    Looking back to 30's the list should definitely include Pranas Lubinas (Frank Lubin), European and Olympic champion. Unless the fact that he was a Lithuanian American does not qualify him enough.

    And definitely a Latvian Janis Krumins who was the best center in Europe in 50's-60's and a predecessor to the ones like Cosic or Sabonis.

    I really love Moshe "Miki" Berkovich. A 6'4" shooting guard, he is considered by many of his fellow Israelis to be the greatest Israeli basketball player of all time.
