-    NBA TALKS EUROPEAN DIVISION BUT NEVER HYPED EUROS AT ALL-STAR WEEKEND

The NBA has thought about expansion to Europe for years and with new NBA Commissioner Adam Silver taking over for David Stern, the talk is about a European division in future NBA plans, to keep growing in an international and global way, but in past NBA All-Star weekends, the NBA has hyped up WNBA women players more than the European NBA players that are in the league and have not put together an international All-Star game, to let the casual NBA fan know who these European players are and give the European and other international players a showcase to show their skills. The international All-Star game would bring more international media to the All-Star weekend and players like Goran Dragic, who got slapped in the face with an All-Star SNUB by the American based NBA coaches, would have more than a STUPID POINT GUARD SKILLS CHALLENGE to show his total game to NBA fans and international basketball fans all over the world. The NBA has the Rising Stars game on Friday night of the All-Star weekend and EUROJOHNBBALL thinks an International game should be put into the future years of the All-Star game Weekend, with international players chosen for the two teams that did not make the Sunday All-Star game, the only international players to make the Sunday game this year were Dirk Nowitzki of Germany and Tony Parker and Joakim Noah of the French national team. The fact that the NBA hypes up WNBA women players during their All-Star weekend more than the European players already in the NBA, is just crazy to EUROJOHNBBALL. The NBA should just forget about the Shooting Stars challenge, that has WNBA players Elena Delle Donne, Swin Cash, Skylar Diggins and Becky Hammon featured with NBA players and NBA legends, the NBA should just put another legend out there instead of watching WNBA players on an NBA ALL-Star weekend. The WNBA is a niche sport and no matter how much the NBA hypes it up in commercials or on NBA All-Star Saturday with NBA players, the ratings will only be so much for the WNBA, but if the NBA took as much time to hype the European NBA players up during the NBA All-Star weekend, as they do for the WNBA, the payoff would be much greater in world ratings. The NBA has the NBA Developmental league All-Star game during this All-Star weekend in New Orleans, but again no International game to hype up the talented Euros on NBA benches that just need a different NBA team to show the talent they have on the court. The International game would get fans from Puerto Rico to watch J.J Barea and fans from Mexico to watch Gustavo Ayon and every nation in Europe to watch the different Euro players in the game. Why the NBA has not brought this game into All-Star weekend is a mystery to EUROJOHNBBALL, as ratings world wide would blow the doors off any WNBA game, maybe the new NBA commissioner Adam Silver will see this and have A NEW COMMERCIAL PROMO, INTERNATIONAL GUYS GOT NEXT.

-                                            NBA FEB. 8th - TOP 10 PLAYS

-            DRAGIC FG PERCENTAGE IS UP TO 51.1 & LILLARD STILL A MEAGER 42.2

EUROJOHNBBALL figured that the chances Slovenian PG Goran Dragic, making the NBA All-Star game were not great, mostly due to the fact he never played NCAA college ball and came to the NBA Straight from Europe and thought the great stats that second year PF Anthony Davis of the Pelicans would get the nod to the All-Star game in New Orleans. The Western conference coaches left Anthony Davis off the reserves list, just as they did to Goran Dragic and for some reason, they felt that the young Portland Blazers need two players on the All-Star roster to reward the 33-13 record that they had at the date the All-Star reserves were announced on TNT. The Western conference coaches chose 2nd year PG and former 2013 NBA rookie of the year Damian Lillard and his  MEAGER 41.7 FG percentage to join a great young PF LaMarcus Aldridge that Lillard has on his Blazers roster to feed the ball to, even though Lillard only had 5.6 Assists per game at the time of the choice and was scoring 20.6 PPG, but AGAIN ON A MEAGER 41.7 FG percentage, COMPARED TO Goran Dragic, who has no LaMarcus Aldridge to pass the ball to on the inside on his Suns roster, that was 27-18 at the time of the choice, but Dragic was shooting a (John Stockton or Tony Parker LIKE) EFFICIENT 49.9 FG percentage and scoring 19.7 PPG and had 6.1 Assists per game (AGAIN WITH NO ALDRIDGE TO DISH TO). The STUPID notion that the Blazers should be rewarded with two players on the NBA All-Star team, just because they have a very good regular season record, is just PLAIN IDIOTIC, if the NBA coaches and the NBA media look at those STATS and the players that Dragic and Lillard have to work with on each roster. What do the NBA coaches and the TNT guys SHAQ, Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith not understand when one guy is shooting A FULL 8 PERCENT better than the other guy and Dragic is the GO TO GUY on the Suns roster, so other teams key on him as the MAIN GUY TO STOP, the Blazers GO TO GUY is LaMarcus Aldridge, so Damian Lillard has more times that he has an open look. The Anti-Euroleague attitude in the NBA goes all the way back to the 1992 Olympics, when Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen from the USA Dream Team wanted to defend Tony Kukoc of Croatia and prove USA players are the best and the LACK OF RESPECT Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili received when they joined the NBA straight from Europe and all the way up to the TNT show announcing the Western conference reserves. As SHAQ, Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith were giving their LOGIC ???? on the picks they had on the board, ALL THREE said if Eric Bledsoe stayed healthy, he would have been the pick over Slovenian PG Goran Dragic, as if though Eric Bledsoe has TONY PARKER TYPE OF CREDENTIALS and if that was not enough to bring out the ANTI EUROLEAGUE tone of the broadcast, Charles Barkley wanted DeAndre Jordan and his 41 percent FT percentage so much on the All-Star team, just because he was leading the NBA in rebounding, that Charles and the TNT guys were thinking of knocking off former NBA Finals MVP Dirk Nowitzki from the roster, so the LA Clippers could have THREE PLAYERS on the roster, the same LA Clippers that have won so many titles, (Oh My BAD, Clippers have not even made a Conference Finals). After the thoughts of taking Dirk off the team, talking sense to the TNT THREE and the NBA coaches that did not pick Goran Dragic is not going to work and Goran, just like Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili in past NBA years has figured this out and all he can do now is STRETCH the stats out even more between Damian Lillard and himself and in recent games since the All-Star SNUB, Dragic is destroying other teams, as he went into Indiana and led the Suns to a win with 28 points and last night versus All-Star PG starter Steph Curry and the GS Warriors,    Dragic went for a career high 34 points in 40 minutes, on an EFFICIENT 10-13 FG, 6-7(3PT), 8-10 FT in a Suns win, to help push the LaMarcus Aldridge less Suns to a 30-20 record, while the Blazers and Lillard are up to 35-15 after a win over Minnesota, but again if Dragic had Aldridge to dish the ball to, the Slovenian would be averaging 10 Plus assists per game.  What other can EUROJOHNBBALL say to the NBA Coaches and TNT guys that pick Lillard over Dragic, other than Dragic has PAID HIS NBA DUES and took over an NBA playoff game in the 4th quarter, the YOUNG Lillard in his second NBA season HAS DONE NEITHER and if People just looked at the STATS it is a SLAM DUNK for DRAGIC. These are the up to date STATS for Dragic and Lillard after Feb. 8th Games.

1. Real Madrid 77 FC Barcelona 76 - American SG Brad Oleson made the biggest shot in his BBALL career, as he drove the lane and made a left-handed lay-up and was fouled by Greek center Ioannis Bourousis with 8.8 seconds left in the game, for an old-fashioned 3 point play to put FC Barcelona up 76-75. Bourousis and the perfect record versus Spanish ACB clubs this season by Real Madrid were bailed out, when Sergio Rodriguez got caught up in the air, but found Sergio Llull open in the corner and the Spanish ACB SG nailed the jumper to give Real Madrid the Spanish Copa Title. Real Madrid was led by SF Rudy Fernandez with 19 points in 28 minutes, on 6-9 FG, 4-5(3PT), 3-4 FT and the MVP of the Copa was Montenegrin-Spaniard PF Nikola Mirotic with 17 points, 11 rebounds in 35 minutes, on 4-6 FG, 2-4(3PT), 7-8 FT, 3 blocks, while vet PF Felipe Reyes and the game hero SG Sergio Llull both added 9 points, with Lull shooting 4-9 FG, 0-3(3PT), 1-1 FT, 6 assists. Real Madrid did a great job of holding Vet FC Barcelona SG Juan Carlos Navarro to just 5 points in the final, on 1-9 FG, 0-4(3PT), 3-6 FT, as FC Barcelona was led by Brazilian PG Marcelo Huertas with 15 points, 8 assists in 32 minutes, on 6-12 FG, 1-2(3PT), 2-2 FT and was followed by Croatian Center Ante Tomic with 14 points, 9 rebounds, while American SG Brad Oleson added 11 points, 6 rebounds.
