-         AUG 4 - PHILADELPHIA 76ERS HIRE JR HOLDEN AS EURO SCOUT

The Philadelphia 76ers just hired JR Holden as an International scout, which EJBB says

is a GREAT hire. JR Holden knows the European game very well, being part of TWO

Euroleague title squads in 2006 and 2008 with CSKA Moscow, playing with NBA level

talent like Theo Papaloukas, Trajan Langdon, David Vanterpool, Matjaz Smodis,

Ramunas Siskauskas and David Anderson and coached by now Spurs assistant coach

Ettore Messina on those CSKA Moscow squads.

JR Holden was part of the Top 50 List 2001-2010 Euroleague All-Decade Team and won

Gold medal at 2007 Eurobasket playing with Russia hitting the game winning jumper,

using a pump fake to get Jose Calderon off his feet with the Fly by and Russia upset Spain

on their home court to win the crown. As many who go to EJBB know the use of USA

PG's with no heritage to a nation or not being born in that nation is just not what nations

should do to win a medal.  JR Holden just like many other USA players are just playing

ball and trying to get exposure but are doing it by using a rule by FIBA that is IDIOTIC

and a JOKE as EJBB has stated many times in the past.  Heritage players of nations being

BENCHED or worse cut from senior national squads that they have played with since the

U-16 and U-18 and U-20 squads.    The Naturalized Citizen rule will most likely stay the

same with FIBA but again EJBB does NOT AGREE with the rule & Fran Fraschila has also

said the rule needs to be changed, but in the end EJBB also agrees that the Philadelphia

76ers hiring JR Holden (The guy that hit the Biggest shot in Naturalized BBALL History) is

still a GREAT Hire for Philly even though the Naturalized Rule is JUST IDIOTIC.
