Just been watching this guy play for Russia and he's a GUN. Apparently one of the stars of CSKA MOscow, the best non-NBA team amd a star all over Europe. Am I the only one surprised he's not in the NBA? Is he good enough to make the NBA? What are your thoughts on this guy?

he is by far good enough but at best a back up pg..also no tax on his salary in russia i think there is 50% tax in USA so he makes a lot more money than NBA role players which is about what he would be

Good player and best suited as a back-up @ NBA level. He has impressed me watching him this morning.

"there isnt match difference between euro and nba these days"

uh, yeah there is.


you always see players trying to make the nba, failing and then signing a contract in Europe.

Euroleague is pretty damn good.

Many teams would compete well in NBA.

Holden was on the same team as David Andersen, and hence has had it great in Russia!
He is getting big money and why would he leave for the NBA for less?

thats my point. euro has had money to keep there own stars in the league so thats why there isnt that bigger gap between the nba and europe teams. im pretty sure that if there was such a big difference that usa would have dominated more than they have in the last 4 or so years.
