Best Americans in the EL?
You can name historic figures (i.e. Dominque Wilkins) or even current players.

For those new to reading and learning about the EL seeing what Americans have done may pique the interest of some.

Who are some of the best Americans to play in the EL? What team(s) did they play for?

Me personally I love Brandon Hunter. Loved him in Boston for his season or 2 and he also lead NCAA in rebounding as well. See no reason why he shouldnt be a good fit for the EL, hustles, plays good defense, CAN score inside even though not exactly his focus. TEAM PLAYER!

I also like Travis Hansen as well....well rounded player that can shoot and score.

Who else?
Bob McAdoo was maybe the best american player that plyed in Europe.

Check this list [url=""][/url] for others.
WOW, never knew that, also thought it was funny that "Walter" Szczerbiak (father of Wally on the Cleveland Cavs) was on the list. When I clicked on his name, it seems like your reading about Wally. "Born Scorer" is exactly what is says about Walter and that is all Wally can do as well.

Cool list on Wiki though...

anyone have anyone else?
Interesting topic <!-- s:thup: -->[img]{SMILIES_PATH}/thup.gif[/img]<!-- s:thup: --> I will speak about the time since around 1998 because I remember it best. The players that come to my mind first are Anthony Parker, Marcus Brown, Tyus Edney (although he had only one fantastic season but he made a name dor himself then), Trajan Langdon, Alphonso Ford.
Panathinaikos had some good Americans such as Dominique Wilkins and Byron Scott, but the best one right now is Michael Batiste, who is the only American in PAO's history who is playing for the team for five seasons in a row...
Respect and thanks for everything:

Alvertis, Bodiroga, Jasikevicius, Radja, Wilkins, Vrankovic, Fotsis, Rebraca, Kattash, Gentile, Koch, Middleton, Kutluay, Rogers, Papadopoulos, Becirovic, Tomasevic, Siskauskas, Pekovic, Lakovic, Vujanic, Chatzivrettas, Maljkovic, Spanoulis and many more to follow in the near future.

For me it will allways has and will allways be the one and only Anthony PArker, Great scorrer , Great Passer' Great Rebounder can play 4 position, great person (I met him once myself), loved by fans, Sportive spirit, Never got a technucal or unsportive foul.. What can u ask more ?? (Maybe for him to make a retirment season in Maccabi one day)
Kareem Rush was good in Rytas, Solomon,Bullock and Maccey are best now!
yeah, i know i am not really objective, but guys believe me: there wasn't anyone better then parker atleast in the last 7 years. amazing player that belongs in tha NBA and somehow got to europe. marcus brown was also great.
Alfonso Ford. Period! <img src='<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />

PS. David Rivers, Eddie ( eddie, eddie!!!! <img src='<#EMO_DIR#>/basketball.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Basketball' /> ) Johnson and Walter Berry were some of Olympiakos good american players.
Dominique is the best American baller to play in Europe.
