Of course, "not good enough

Of course, "not good enough to be on mocks", and "not good enough to be drafted".................

or as Pohani Komarac put it, "not good enough to have had anyone in Europe even ever hear of him before, or even know his name"..............

I like how the high light

I like how the high light videos showed the same easy pass about 15 times.

Can't really tell much from the video but he looks like a pretty poor athlete. His understanding of the Europe game seems solid but that goes out the window in the nba. I know it's not exactly the deepest position in the nba but how well will he match up with other SGs with those slow feet that he can't seem to get off the ground.

Slow feet? Not athletic? Stop

Slow feet? Not athletic? Stop this racist comments. Just say "yeah he's white so he is a stiff and can't play because he isn't black". Just say it because you are racist. Stop the code words and being a coward and at least come out and admit you are racist.

Pappas is an incredible defensive player - probably in the top 5 in Europe. He regularly guards point guards and shuts them down. He dunks in almost every single game he plays in.

Take your racist crap out of here.

I'm white so unless I hate my own people. That running one handed dunk he did a few times in the video, I can do that and I'm 6'4" and a very average athlete (for normal people, nba standards I'm a waste of time in all regards). If he guards point guards then the point guards in that league must not be very fast either.

Yes, I am sure without question that right now you can sign with a team in the 2nd best league in Europe and 3rd best league in the whole planet (Eurocup) and instantly lead the league in both scoring and steals.

I am sure that without any doubt you can do that.

You are a racist period.

Not athletic enough, slow shot release, couldn't create his own shot in the league, plays against weak a$$ competition, etc....maybe there is a reason hes playing in the Greek League and not the NBA... he would get $hit on and embarassed every night Euro baller.

At first I thought he could

At first I thought he could be used as a gunner coming off the bench (taken with a second round pick, of course). It seems he's good moving without the ball, comes off the screens and finds his way to the basket for either a pull up jumper or layup. Maybe the opponents respect his 3pt shot? Nah... the dude has shot under 30% from 3pt in the past two seasons!

I'm sorry Euroballer. I really tried to see things from your perspective, but in this case it's a no go.

Sorry I had to keep it real

Sorry I had to keep it real with you Euro. I'm white, and I live in America which has the best basketball players in the world in my opinion (i.e. Olympics this year, where was Greece btw?) so when you post weak a$$ mix tapes of players that look like they might not even be able play in the NAIA its pretty hilarious to me.

Leads the Eurocup in both points and steals. The same league where plenty of NBA players were scrubs, including Allen Iverson and Deron Williams.

Your level of basketball knowledge is truly pathetic and hilarious.

Greek

I don´t get it... why if someone says a Greek player doesn't have what is needed to play in the NBA is racist? I'm from Chile, we don´t have any player in the league, and it´s not racism, it´s just that they aren´t good enough't...

Anyone saying the guy that leads Eurocup in scoring and steals is not good enough to play in the NBA is either retarded or has an agenda.

Pappas is white.

They are all racists. If you are not racist, then you are retarded. I take it from your post that you are a retard, but not racist.

I'm honestly just clicking on your posts to neg you..

The greek league is beyond pathetic, check his stats only against Panathinaikos and Olympiakos if you want to have a clear picture.

His skillset translates well for the European basketball, in the NBA he'd get massacred.

Only current Greek who can actually offer something in the NBA is Kostas Papanikolaou and his rights belong to the Blazers.

Oh, I'm Greek. So don't bother with the racist crap,

I never said that Papanikolaou is the best player in Oly, i said he's the best NBA prospect.. There is a huge difference between those two.. Spanoulis, who is the best player of Oly, fed the bench in Houston for a year if you remember...

1. Spanoulis is 100 times a better "NBA prospect" than Papanikoloau could ever dream of being.

Spanoulis is the greatest talent of Greek basketball ever, even he is more talented than Galis was. He is by far and away the best Euroleague player of the last 4-5 years.

2. You are NOT Greek. You are obviously Albanian or Turk, or probably even from FYROM. Bulgarian roots perhaps?

And Diamantidis might have a thing or two to say concerning who is the best player.

And you obviously do not understand the term of prospect. Spanoulis is 29 years old. He can't be classified as one.

I am Greek through and through you retard, both parents from Athens. Wanna meet up and have this convo in private??

Well, in all fairness,

Well, in all fairness, Panathinaikos and Olympiakos are two of the best teams in Europe.

The others though. Utter bullcrap. That's why i said that only the points he scores against those two are to be taken into consideration.

Also, Kosta Koufos, a GREEK, has started every game for the Nuggets and has received praise from George Karl. But this guy still believes there is racism against Greeks.... Smh..

I'm white and french... and

I'm white and french... and teacher in economics and sociology. You're only argument is always the same "if you're not agree with me you're racist against white and greek people". You're a stupid ignorant.

If Westermann (french pg in belgrade) can't make it to the nba, it will be because his skills don't fit the nba way of playing basketball. It won't be because US GM are racists.

If there are so few greek player in the nba that's because greek prospects play at a low level (the greek league) and don't show some skills that can work in the nba or attract them at least. If Ajinca or petro were drafted (french busts among others), that's because they had some really interesting physical attributes. The draft is about searching for and finding some specific skills, physical / athletic basis to develop a player not drafting the best player. You still don't understand after all those stupid threads.

Look at all the greek players who come to the nba. It DIDN'T work very well for them. So you can't expect US Gm to be positiv about drafting a player from Greece.

French players began to get drafted after tariq abdul wahad was. Because he had a nice beginning in his carreer (sacramento and orlando and some games in denver) it opened the door to other french prospects. But he accepted to play in the ncaa (michigan and san jose). Moiso or Noah did too in UCLA and Florida. Pietrus, Ajinca, Beaubois and Petro showed some athletic appealing skills that lead them to get drafted even if their carreer were not what we expected. Diaw and Batum played well very young at european levels before getting drafted and benefits from the habits of drafting french players every year (like morlende, weis and some other whoi never came).

Tony Parker has a wonderfull carreer. It helped a lot other french prospects to get drafted. Where is the Greek parker who has opened the door for all those greek prospects you're talking about ?... That's not only about quality players (cause I think Bourrousis, Papanikolaou could be some great players in the right frnachise in hte nba).

Every single person saying

Every single person saying Pappas is not athletic is definitely racist against white people.

I also love how you all ignored that he leads Eurocup in scoring. Yeah, because just any scrub can lead the second European league in scoring..........................

Yeah, and that he "can't play defense and is slow" even though he also leads the Eurocup in steals.

http://www.eurocupbasketball.com/eurocup/games/statistics?mode=Leaders&e...

Right, because guys with no athletic ability that can't play defense and are slow always lead the league they play in under the steals category.

Right.

EVERY one of you saying he is not athletic are racist.

And every one of you saying the Eurocup is a scrub league and nothing done their counts are RETARDED. That's the by far and away third best league on the planet, much better than the Spanish League that you same idiots drool over any player from there that ever once scored 20 points in a game and one time appeared on a mock list.

Eurocup is loaded with NBA draft picks, NBA players, future NBA players, etc. A lot of people should get banned from this forum just for the complete crap they posted in this thread.

The site admin did not make any racist comments. The people posting in this thread did.

If you don't like being called a racist, stop making racist statements. That's pretty simple, although racists lack the ability to use common rationality and logic, so maybe even something so simple is beyond your mental grasp.

1. I just said that, based on this player's stats and style of play, I don't think he would be GREAT in the NBA. I NEVER SAID that ALL GREEK greek prospects are terrible.
2. The mock draft on the main page is made by the administrator, not by forum users. Maybe even something so simple is beyond your mental grasp.

I really appreciate your posts about greek players, because actually some of them could actually be good and weren't noticed around here. But this is out of control, because you're impolite and disrespectful with everyone. From now on, I'll stop making comments on your threads, but I may read them just to neg you, douchebag...
