People are afraid to appear racist, so they say "European", when they mean offence only players. That includes white American players.
But "European" can also mean South American or Australian in ignorant NBA.
So these two "Europeans" get confused.
Bargnani is the prime example of European though. A dying breed with the move towards dynamic small ball, you can say, a dinosaur
