-     GORAN DRAGIC GETS DISRESPECT THAT M. GINOBILI & T. PARKER GOT EARLY

The 2014 NBA All-Star reserves were just announced on TNT and just as EUROJOHNBBALL predicted, the great year that Slovenian PG Goran Dragic was having for the surprising 27-18 Phoenix Suns was not rewarded by the Western Conference coaches, who chose the year that 2013 NBA Rookie of the year Damian Lillard was having with the 33-13 Portland Blazers. EUROJOHNBBALL will get into the stats between the two Western conference PG's, but first the DISRESPECT against former European league players continues, from NBA media, with TNT announcers, SHAQ, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley, as none of those three had Goran Dragic on the reserves list on the West, but all three chose Damian Lillard and all three TNT announcers kept talking about injured Phoenix Suns PG Eric Bledsoe, like he had Tony Parker type of credentials, saying that they thought Bledsoe would have been the pick over Dragic if he stayed healthy for the Suns. What the TNT announcers were saying on the air in comparing Dragic and Bledsoe is no different than what future Spurs Hall of Fame guards Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker faced from the American based NBA media and the American based coaches in past years. Tony Parker already won an NBA Finals MVP in 2007, but has never been named to the All-NBA First team, rather Chris Paul got the nod last season even though the stats would say otherwise, and the more flashy Chris Paul has never been out of the second round of the NBA playoffs, as again his team lost to the Mike Conley PG led Memphis Grizzlies, who by the way got destroyed in the next series by Tony Parker in a 4-0 sweep. The same type of disrespect towards Manu Ginobili by NBA media outlets has also been seen, as the 2005 NBA Finals MVP went to the Tim Duncan, who happened to play NCAA college ball and Ginobili came straight to the NBA from the Euroleague and the Italian league, but in the Ginobili case, it was not just the fact that he took over late in the 2005 NBA finals and was snubbed an NBA Finals MVP, but it was the POOR JOB that the NBA media outlets in general did to hype an athletic wing player with take over ability from the top of the key and the AMAZING FACIAL DUNKS on larger players. Ginobili was called code words CLEVER or SMART player by the NBA media outlets and NBA reporters, when infact he was one of the more exciting players in the NBA in the open court, but was not given the PROPER HYPE in pregame videos, rather the NBA chose to hype the FUNDAMENTAL angle of the Spurs and Tim Duncan who the American basketball fans could relate to more from his college days on ESPN.  The same could be said this year with the pick of Damian Lillard who is shooting 41.7 on FG's compared to the 49.9 by Goran Dragic, that is a full 8 percent difference and the other stats are pretty much the same Dragic scoring 19.7 PPG, 6.1 Assists and Lillard 20.6 PPG, 5.6 Assists, not to mention the HELP that Lillard has in the frontcourt with LaMarcus Aldridge and his 24 PPG and 12 Rebounds, if Dragic had an Aldridge to feed the ball to inside, the Slovenian PG would have about 9 to 10 assists per game. Oh by the way the Tony Parker type of STATS that SHAQ, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley thought Eric Bledsoe had this year before injury were 18.0 PPG, 5.8 Assists and he was shooting 48.6 on FG's, better than Lillard, but not Dragic.  It is not like EUROJOHNBBALL thinks SHAQ and Charles Barkley have a problem with Goran Dragic, but EUROJOHNBBALL  heard Kenny Smith on NBA Radio say that in his early years he was wondering why NBA teams could not find the same type of player in the U.S.A and give a job to a local guy, instead of searching the world for players. Is Kenny Smith holding a grudge from his early NBA day thoughts, JUST WONDERING if that type of thinking is still in the back of his mind or other NBA media people and NBA coaches, when they choose between Damian Lillard and his 41.7 FG Percentage who has Aldridge to team with and Goran Dragic with his John Stockton like 49.9 efficient FG percentage and just 3 point shooters to dish the ball to.  The Choice is easy for EUROJOHNBBALL, just look at the STATS and who is on each team and look at the Games without the anti Euroleague BIAS, CASE CLOSED it should be Goran Dragic look at the STATS & VIDEOS BELOW & UP TOP & SEND THE LINK TO THE TNT GUYS.
