-                FULL GAME FOUR -  1st QT -  2nd QT -  3rd QT -  4th QT

1. FC BARCELONA 83 REAL MADRID 81 - EUROJOHNBBALL called Real Madrid the deepest squad in European basketball this season and early on it looked like the 12 deep squad was on a path to the 2014 Euroleague and Spanish ACB titles, after 25, 30 and 35 point blowout games being the norm every week.

The season ended much different than it started for Real Madrid, losing to Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Euroleague final, after being a 10 point favorite and the 2014 Spanish ACB season ended with FC Barcelona defeating Real Madrid 3-1 and becoming the new ACB champion.   FC Barcelona won the closeout game by two points and were led by Croatian Center Ante Tomic with 22 points, 9 rebounds in 30 minutes, on 8-12 FG, 6-8 FT  (Yeah GOOD MOVE Doug Collins, Signing Kwame Brown in 2012, when Ante Tomic was released by Real Madrid, it was the normal NBA move, by teams other than the Spurs (Greg Oden MIAMI), ASHAME Tony Dileo could not use his Good European Knowledge in Philly when Doug Collins was there making the picks, anyway the Croatian PAU GASOL and his good LOW-POST game of Ante Tomic was followed by Spanish SG Juan Carlos Navarro with 14 points, while American SG Brad Oleson and Slovenian SF Bostjan Nachbar with 10 points apiece in the win.    Some announcers in the USA on NBA radio have called Nikola Mirotic the best young player in Europe, but with the way he ended the 2014 season, the Best young player in Europe has to go to Dario Saric instead, as Nikola Mirotic again grabbed ZERO rebounds in the 2 point closeout game loss in 20 minutes of play, scoring 11 points, on 3-7 FG, 0-1(3PT), 5-5 FT and now must consider on going to the Chicago Bulls in the NBA, as minutes on the deep Real Madrid squad are not consistent and a change would be good for the once, young dominant and versatile PF.         Real Madrid was led by Spanish SF Rudy Fernandez with 13 points, on 4-10 FG, but only 1-5 from 3 point land, 4-6 FT, as Real Madrid only made 4-12 from long range, compared to 9-19 by FC Barcelona, Greek center Ioannis Bourousis followed with 12 points, 7 rebounds, while Spanish PF Felipe Reyes also added 11 points along with Mirotic.

 

-                        ITALIAN LEGA FINALS GAME SEVEN - JUNE 27th

-   TWOLVES 2ND RD. PICK ALESSANDRO GENTILE 18 PTS TO LEAD MILANO TO TITLE

2. EA7 MILANO 74 MONTEPASCHI 67 - EUROJOHNBBALL called Italian 21 year old SF Alessandro Gentile a young Andres Nocioni, in the way his body type is and the way he can shoot the deep 3 pointer, while also having the ability to attack the basket.  The Minnesota Twolves also liked the potential of Alessandro Gentile, as he was taken by Minnesota in the 2014 NBA second round with the 53rd pick and after leading EA7 Milano with a 23 point game 6 performance, on 10-18 FG, 2-3(3PT), 1-2 FT, the young Italian player led EA7 Milano in the deciding game 7 of the Italian finals, with 18 points in 28 minutes, on 6-10 FG, 6-8 FT and was followed by young 23 year old Italian PF Nicolo Melli with 11 points, 13 rebounds, while American SG Keith Langford added 9 points in the championship win.    Montepaschi was led by American PG Erick Green with 15 points, on 6-12 FG, 1-3(3PT), 2-5 FT and was followed by American SG Marquez Haynes with 14 points.

- DARIO SARIC & SIXERS 10th PICK STILL A GOOD FIT - MOST VERSATILE IN DRAFT

-     WORLD SCOUTING SPURS WIN FINALS - MIAMI & MORE NBA TEAMS SHOULD COPY


-       KOSTAS PAPANIKOLAOU HAS PLAYED & WON MANY CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES

The rumor going around the NBA is that PG Jeremy Lin will be traded to the Philadelphia 76ers for the upcoming 2014-15 season, so that the Houston Rockets can have enough money to try and sign free agent forward Carmelo Anthony.  The Rockets gave number 7 jersey to Carmelo Anthony in a billboard advertisment, the same number 7 that Jeremy Lin has worn with the Houston Rockets, COINCIDENCE ??

The 76ers have the money to handle the last year of the Jeremy Lin 8 million dollar contract, and if the deal goes through and they decide to keep Jeremy Lin early on in the 2014-15 season, the Sixers could see a new walkup attendance BUMP of about 1000 to 1500 Asian Americans that will buy tickets to watch Jeremy Lin play in Philly.   Talk show hosts in Philly call Jeremy Lin, just a backup to Michael Carter-Williams at the PG spot, but EUROJOHNBBALL thinks that if the Sixers keep Jeremy Lin, he would play many minutes at the shooting guard spot, because of his good 3 point stroke.

The rumor is that Philly wants a first round pick to come from the Rockets, in order to take the Jeremy Lin salary in 2014-15, but EUROJOHNBBALL thinks that the best move for the Sixers and GM Sam Hinkie to do, is ask for the Draft Rights to soon to be 24 year old 6 foot 8 inch, 230 pound Greek SF Kostas Papanikolaou, that the Rockets own.  Houston got the rights to Papanikolaou in a trade with Portland, after the New York Knicks drafted him in the 2012 NBA draft with the 48th pick in the Second Round.

-   Kostas Papanikolaou now plays with FC Barcelona in Spain and has two years left on his deal, with NBA buyout clause for both the 2014 and 2015 off seasons, but chances of him coming over in 2014-15 are very low, but since the Sixers are trying to put a championship roster together for the FUTURE, Papanikolaou is even better than a late first round pick from the Rockets, because Papanikolaou in a WINNER that now has won 3 straight titles in his young European league career and their was a late push to make him an NBA first round pick in 2012, as the OKC thunder and Miami Heat were thinking of taking him, after EUROJOHNBBALL (FIRST) wrote a piece and Yahoo Sports Top NBA writer Adrian Wojnarowski saw the EUROJOHNBBALL piece and asked around with his great sources and TWEETED out Kostas Papanikolaou was gaining momentum to be an NBA first round pick (IMAGINE THAT).    Like EJBB was saying Kostas Papanikolaou is a better piece to the Sixers CHAMPIONSHIP FUTURE, even more than a late future NBA first round pick, because Kostas Papanikolaou has won at every level and league in his European career, as he led the Greek U-18 national team to a GOLD Medal in 2008, another GOLD Medal in the 2009 European Championships in the U-20, he helped Vassilis Spanoulis and Olympiacos win the 2012 Euroleague championship and helped SHUT DOWN regular season MVP Andrei Kirilenko, while being perfect and CLUTCH on the offensive end, in a DRAMATIC comeback victory, then helped Olympiacos win their FIRST Greek A1 title in 2012 since 1997, another Euroleague title in 2013 with Olympiacos versus the Deep Real Madrid squad and in 2014, he helped his new FC Barcelona squad defeat Real Madrid in the DEEP Spanish ACB title,  in other words the Greek SF has TONS of championship games in his past and is not afraid of THE BIG STAGE MOMENT.   The Sixers took Dario Saric the most versatile offensive player in the 2014 NBA draft with their 10th pick, something EUROJOHNBBALL drilled on the homepage of the website for over a month,  Sam Hinkie and EJBB think the same on the direction of the future, with the Dario Saric pick and grabbing the rights to Kostas Papanikolaou would be the perfect move, as Dario Saric and Papanikolaou could both come over to the Sixers for the 2016-17 season and both players have led Greece and Croatia to Gold Medals in European titles, Papanikolaou winning back to back Euroleague titles with Vassilis Spanoulis and Dario Saric leading Cibona to the Adriatic league title as the MVP, as just a 20 year old player.    The only thing that would make the Sixers the new Kings of NBA Scouting of European leagues, would be to grab 19 year old Croatian SG-SF Mario Hezonja in the 2015 NBA lottery next season,     Imagine Dario Saric, Mario Hezonja, Kostas Papanikolaou playing with a healthy Joel Embiid, Nerlens Noel and Michael Carter-Williams at the start of the 2016-17 season, all EUROJOHNBBALL can say if all that happens is NOT ONE, NOT TWO, NOT THREE, NOT FOUR, NOT FIVE, NOT SIX - Championships.              Oh Yeah LeBron James is looking for a SQUAD on July 4th -  The TOO OLD Euro- Based Spurs just chillin with the NBA Title, Tim Duncan 38 years old, Manu Ginobili 37 years old in 24 days and Tony Parker 32 years old.
