With the arrival of more and more current NBA players to Europe and the first ever High School player signing directly out of HS with an Euroleague team, I asked myself the question if this is the end of our beloved “Euroball”?

Josh Childress, Brandon Jennings, Earl Boykins, Jannero Pargo, Shawn Kemp and so on… The names of US born players, that are/were legit NBA guys or top prospects, signing with European teams has never been as impressive than this summer. And I don’t even speak about the European comebackers.The historically low value of the US Dollar and the increasing financial possibilities of the top European clubs make these deals possible. What looks like an improvement at first sight may also be the end of the so-called Euroball.

But first of all, talking about Euroball needs to explain what is Euroball....

I think it's the new players that have to adjust to the European style basketball, not the other way around :shrug:
