Sabonis play in Euroleague in 2004?
Sabonis has a Euroleague RANKING of 26.2 in 28mpg in 2003-04. That is awesome.
How did he do it? Is the Euroleague really that weak of competetion, especially underneath the basket? Sabonis did well in almost every season in the NBA -- he was a great rotational player and starting big to have even in his injured seasons.
But how can he dominate so easily at his age in the league? Is Euroleague really that bad in terms of big man and overall quality of play?
How can guys like Ginobili, Nocioni who played in their mid 20s in the Euroleague have much weaker stats yet play as well or better than Sabonis did in the NBA? They clearly did not have 20+RKG like Sabonis. Maybe they played better defense than Sabonis?
Was Sabonis a great defender in 2003-04?
Anyone have any ideas as to why this is?
