European system is socialism, everyone gets taught the same skills.
North American game is capitalism, find your niche and put all your resources in that to dominate with that specific skill.

*What Euros learn too much though is the fucking flop techniques...Holy crap does Europe ever lead in that category. Asik just reminded me of that tonight.
Outside of the Gasols (one of which grew up in the North American ball system) I couldn't name a single Euro big man who would crack a top 10 defensive bigs list.
Here's hoping Val will become the exception.
That's also a seriously flawed way of looking at it. Especially if you say "outside 2 of the best big men of the last decade"....It's like, there are generally many more American than Euro players. Having 2, 3 or 4 in the top 10 is a fuckload.
