    He is partner with Rudy Fernandez http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudy_Fernández_(basketball) , which was last year pick 27 i think, traded to the Blazers by the Suns, has a buyout clause with DKV Jouventud and probably wont play untill 2008 or 2009

    you can see gamefilm of ricky each week at www.acb.com, look for "dkv jouventud" games.

    Here is last weeks.

    Gloat, Do you think "any" div 1 college team is as good as Dkv jouventud?
    They have two probable nba players, one already picked.

    Dkv is right now second on the classification table and has high expectations about the final four

    None of that film impresses me. There was a tremendous lack of defense. The passes that they were making, wouldn't be there in the NBA or NCAA.

    Not impressive to me

    Not my intention to do that. Sorry to disapoint you.

    Remember when Pau won ROY?
    There wasnt that much transition needed from Eurobasketball to US basketball, any other ncaa player could have done it...

    For every Pau, there are 3 Darko's

    I'm not seeing why either of them are worthy of a NBA draft pick.

    The "bluff" ratio is equally big, or bigger on ncaa players. As a matter of fact it is commmon thought among nba staffs that europeans are usually more coachable, more team-friendly and have a higher "ceiling" than most ncaa players. Also, that the gap between ncaa-nba and euroleague-nba can be narrower in the later.

    How many foreigneirs has the 2007 nba champs San Antonio Spurs?

    Foreigners are starting to be consistantly good in the NBA now. The best foreigners would make an awesome All-NBA team.

    There are plenty of good foreign players that I are good. Yao Ming, Dirko Milichek, Pau Gasol, etc. Like Gunny said, you could make a nice team of them. San Antonio has a couple of them (Ginoboli and others).
    There is a dramatic difference in the international style of play than the American style of play overall.

    Imagine a team with Gasol, Ming, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Andrei Kirilenko, Yi Jainlian, etc.
