"Stealing jobs" SMH @ the xenophobia. It's not stealing when they do the job better than American born players.
Frederic Weiss was a dick, and never left Europe. So, because of that, we should never draft another Euro player. Great logic...
I wanted us to draft Ron Artest as much as anyone. But you can't stereotype all Euro players because of Weiss.

Just because there aren't as many foreign born NBA players, doesn't mean they're bad. Many of them stay in their own countries.
But all that doesn't mean I hate foreign born players. I thought Rudy Fernandez got cheated in the slam dunk contest. I follow MIZZOU hoops and love Linus Glaza. But he did it right. He came over here, went to school, and learned how to play hoops the American way. Even though he is big and can run the floor, he learned to be tough in the paint as well and not rely on 3's and hit the weight room as well. I really think that is the better route for foreign born players. I almost think they are hiding something by not coming over here and playing D1 for at least one year so they can be properly scouted and coached.
Gallinari is 25 pounds over 200 pounds, how is that under 200?
Gallinari is 6"10 225...get your information right, for once. Dumbass.
Do you even know the defenition of a project?
a project is a Darko Milicic.
an unproven player in a weak league, drafted on potential and physical attriubutes.
Gallinari was an elite Euroleague player, the leader of his team at 19...been pro since 16.
Gallinari is FAR away from a project.
He's a very skilled and very talented prospect.
**** the midwest.
You're clearly misinformed about Gallo's skill set and physical attributes. He's obviously not a project.
Do you think Kobe, Lebron, T-Mac, Darryl Dawkins, and all the other players who skipped college for the pros are hiding something? No, if someone has an opportunity to make the NBA at a high lottery pick, their obviously gonna take it. The NCAA isn't a requirement for the NBA.
