-  OCT. 20 - VASSILIS SPANOULIS AGAIN (NO RESPECT) NBA GM's 2015-16 SURVEY

EJBB saw the latest NBA GM survey on NBA.COM and again the best player in Europe not in the NBA (GOT NO RESPECT) by NBA GM's that did not even list Greek PG Vassilis Spanoulis in the names that were at the top of the list. EJBB will not REPEAT the same points as last years EJBB piece, but it seems the NBA GM's are going on potential instead of who has been the dominant player of Europe the PAST DECADE, because the Euroleague titles and MVP's in the Final Four would say Vassilis Spanoulis has to be on that list of players not in the NBA.

The list has Dario Saric at the top, along with Dragan Bender and Ben Simmons getting more votes than the EURO LEGEND Spanoulis, with Zoran Dragic, Sergio Rodriguez, Jan Vesely, Rudy Fernandez, Sergio Llull and Milos Teodosic ahead of Spanoulis.   All EJBB can say is Spanoulis even at 33 years of age not being on that list of players is LAUGHABLE, those NBA GM's that did not vote for Spanoulis in past surveys and this one need to just read my 2014-15 piece and watch what Spanoulis did in the 2013 Euroleague Final versus Sergio Llull, Sergio Rodriguez and the 3-0 sweep versus Panathinaikos in the 2015 Greek A1 title, the 2015 Euroleague playoffs last year versus FC Barcelona in game four closeout game and against CSKA Moscow and Milos Teodosic in the semis in the final minutes and watch who took over the Croatia versus Greece game versus Dario Saric this past 2015 Eurobasket.

The potential of Dario Saric, Dragan Bender and Ben Simmons is a great thing, but Spanoulis has done it in the Clutch in past title games and TITLES IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT, Spanoulis might be older, but not on the list AGAIN is just CRAZY and LAUGHABLE.

 

-            NBA GM's 2014-15 SURVEY OF WHO THE TOP PLAYERS NOT IN THE NBA

The disrespect of two Greek players that helped dominate the Euroleague titles in the past decade, keeps on going, as today on the NBA.COM website,  John Schuhmann put out the annual NBA GM's survey and just like in 2012 and 2013, Vassilis Spanoulis and Dimtris Diamantidis were not on top of the list of players that do not play in the NBA. The top four on the new 2014 list were 1. Rudy Fernandez -- 32% Dario Saric -- 32%  3. Sergio Rodriguez -- 12%, Milos Teodosic -- 12% , with the article saying that the 2009, 2012 and 2013 Euroleague champion and Final Four MVP all three times, Vassilis Spanoulis Also receiving votes.  Dimitris Diamantidis also was on the 2009 Euroleague title Panathinaikos team with Spanoulis and Diamantidis also won the 2007 and 2011 Euroleague titles along with being MVP at both of those Final Four titles, but when EUROJOHNBBALL asked NBA GM's about Diamantidis as a 28 year old free agent, SIX NBA GM's had NO IDEA who the Euroleague Great was, infact one former NBA GM, asked how old was this Diamantidis guy and how tall was he.   Most of the NBA GM's that had NO CLUE who Diamantidis was, watch Major League Baseball more than the Euroleague and know more about a left handed relief pitcher, than the Euroleague Final Four.

The fact that the 32 year old Vassilis Spanoulis only got few votes, after putting Olympiacos on his back for the 2012 and 2013 Euroleague titles, shows even more that the Spurs are the smartest team in the NBA about Euro talent, as RC Buford and the Spurs traded for Spanoulis in 2007, after his HORRIBLE KYLE KORVER STAND IN THE CORNER TYPE OF SEASON WITH JEFF VAN GUNDY IN HOUSTON IN 2006, after he took over versus team USA in the last loss for coach K, but for some reason NBA GM's think Rudy Fernandez, Milos Teodosic and Sergio Rodriguez are better players, even though none of those three players ever won a game versus NBA team USA players and none of those three ever won a Euroleague title, let alone won MVP of the Euroleague title, again Spanoulis has done it THREE times.

Teodosic, Fernandez and Rodriguez are high on the list of EUROJOHNBBALL, but until they win a Euroleague title, they can not be ahead of Spanoulis, who won one of his Euroleague Final Four MVP awards and titles versus Real Madrid, when he exploded in the second half.  Dario Saric could be the next Toni Kukoc, Lamar Odom or Dejan Bodiroga, but unless the NBA GM's were picking the age factor for Dario Saric 20 years old, compared to Vassilis Spanoulis 32 years old, then the 20 year old Dario Saric picked ahead of the clutchest Euroleague player of the last decade is just DISRESPECT, by many NBA GM's that know little about who truly has been the GO TO GUY in Europe the past SIX years, winning THREE Euroleague titles and THREE MVP's in that time span.

The 2013 NBA survey list was a BIGGER JOKE than the new 2014 Survey, as Nikola Mirotic won with 25% of the vote and Spanoulis was second with 14.3% of the votes, even though Mirotic was part of that same Real Madrid team with Fernandez and Rodriguez, that Spanoulis torched to WIN BACK TO BACK EUROLEAGUE titles. Mirotic is a good player, but is not a give me the ball, I will win you this title type of guy like Dirk Nowitzki, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker or Vassilis Spanoulis.

RC Buford knows Vassilis Spanoulis and Dimitris Diamantidis, but the other NBA GM's that think guys never winning Euroleague titles are better, just need to WAKE UP & SMELL THE COFFEE and stop watching so much Baseball and NFL Football and watch some Euroleague playoff games from time to time, for those that did watch the Euroleague in the past decade, they know Greek PG's Vassilis Spanoulis, Dimitris Diamantidis and retired Theo Papaloukas DOMINATED THE EUROLEAGUE, winning the 2006, 20072008, 2009, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Euroleague titles, PUT THAT IN YOUR NEXT SURVEY !!!!!
