    Yeah, agreed. Also I would expect the most uncomfortable teams to be Madrid, Efes and Barcelona (no offense to Maccabi).

    Why not Maccabi ?
    Maccabi leads all the teams in some of the most important defensive stats. Here some of them:
    1.The best in category- Average opponents 2 point %
    2.The best in category-Average opponents true shooting %
    3. The second best team in the league by points received.
    4. the best in category: average opponents - assist -turnover ratio.
    5. The third in category : average opponents turnovers.
    6. Second in category: average opponents assist.
    7. Leading all the teams in Steals.

    Also Maccabi are not only excels on defence, they have the 4th best offense in the league by points scored.

    That's the definition of uncomfortable team to play against.

    Maccabi performs well, but I had thought that if I were a coach one thing I would dislike most about an opponent is depth/diversity. With Maccabi you know what is coming and plan accordingly, even though it will be hard. But, with the stats you gave I can see why opponent coaches dislike playing Maccabi more than most other teams.

    Maccabi are really uncomfortable playing against because they are so fast, athletic and aggressive in both offence and defence.

    RM are uncomfortable because they have so much depth and are a settled team as opposed to Barca who also have depth are still in building process.

    yes, and not Obradovic, assuming the question is "who is the best coach so far this year". I think they just went with standard answers. You can see that in many of the other answers, like Dunston as the best defender.
