    you have a point with him, for moment I forgot he existed. Maybe I cold include Schrempf and Smits too. I loved Schrempf matchups with Toni. And Navarro at SG. But that is not the point

    But between him and Djordjevic it's close fight in my opinion. And Djordjevic is one of players I hated most
    Jordi Bertomeu sucks!

    Great observation on Smits. He was such an offensive weapon especially in the mid 1990’s. He probably doesn’t ge brought up a lot due to his Dutch background which lacks basketball pedigree and the fact that he was a poor rebounder and defender. But offensively he had elite skills including excellent touch up to 15 feet and a great aresenal of low post moves.
    At 7 feet 4 and those offensive skills he was a nightmare to defend for some of the greats of his era including Shaq and Patrick Ewing. As I mentioned the problem was he was not good on the boards or on the other end and rarely could stay on court in big games for more than 35 minutes. But offensively he was a load to handle and I always thought of him as a poor man’s Kevin McHale.

    Greatest Europen player in the making is Luka Doncic. That’s if he make some noise in NBA...

    Any list that doesn’t include Nowitzki who has had the greatest club career by any European in history or Pau Gasol who has had the greatest national team career by any European in history is absurd.

    Petrovic, Sabonis or Nowitzki...impossible to decide.

    My heart says Petrovic, though.
