Nah, I remember his hairy hands very well Every time I see someone with hairy hands I call him Duenes Though he wasn't great player. Good, but not great. Im young, but not that young. Into Euroleague since ~1999 (me, not Duenes)



Rashard Griffith - hated his team and him since my childhood, but had his poster on my wall. One of the best Centers in Euroleague History.

That is a picture of Spanoulis from like 2 weeks ago.

Personally, to me, he's not close to as ugly as Kirilenko is....



But to each their own I guess......

You're greek and you say the greek player is not ugly for you? Wow, didn't see it coming.

This thread has nothing to do with Kirilenko, better say who you think would be uglier than Spanoulis in Raptors roster. No one.

Being Greek has nothing to do with that. Actually, there are plenty of Greek players that are MUCH uglier than Spanoulis is - like Diamantidis and Papaloukas, for example.

Anyway, Greek media asked Spanoulis at the Greek League's media day, if the rumors are true that the Raptors are interested in him and want him, and that he will go to the Raptors after this season. He did not deny it. He just said, that he will talk with Olympiacos first.

So, evidently the rumors are true, because he didn't deny it, and his agent didn't either. Normally, they always denied rumors like this before.

Here is an English article that mentions it:

Passing, awareness and ball handling all look great - I like how he plays with his head up at all times.

I doubt he'll be able to get his shot off in the NBA with such a low release, he'll be limited to wide open jumpers.

Also there's the question of how his D translates.

How did this thread devolve into a "who's hotter?" thread?

And about NBA players no less?

Only good news about this is that Calderon is gone at the end of the season. This team will still be a joke though if Colangelo is our GM at the end of the season to make this decision.

Spanuolis looks like a lumberjack ... or a soccer player...
Or I guess a lumberjack soccer player lol.

Kirilenko on the other hand is in the same boat as:


Dem some ugly mother fuckers!

Spanoulis is good European player (wouldn't call him best as in post #1), but I really don't think his play style suits NBA.
