Making the most of Europe
By Henry Abbott
The TrueHoop Network blog Ball in Europe has assembled highlights and stat lines of some of the NBA players who put on the best show while playing in Europe.
Deron Williams' massive show of 3-pointers and layups that led to 50 points in a close-fought win takes the cake.
But there are so many. Andrei Kirilenko with the league's assist, block and dunk of the night all in the same night. Brian Scalabrine charming fans in Treviso like he did in New Jersey, Boston and Chicago. Ty Lawson stepping up his Twitter game. Nicolas Batum's nearly perfect performance in Nancy's biggest win of the young season. Tony Parker, Jordan Farmar ... even Kobe Bryant earns a mention for keeping Italian fans spellbound without even signing a contract.
