    In recent years...

    Nash has won 2 MVPs.

    Nowtizki almost lead his team to a ring. He came as close as you can get.

    Thabo Sefolosha and Anderson Varejao made the all-defensive 2nd team last year. AK47 has made both the 1st and 2nd team all-defense.

    ... And this is just off the top of my head while excluding the likes of The Dream, Mutombo, Arvydas Sabonis and Vlade Dviac for example...

    Exactly. I still maintain that before that vomit-inducing broken leg, Garbajosa had the potential to be one of the smartest, scrappiest players in the game too. Plus looking back at legends and strong supporting players from my childhood: Bill Wennington, Tony Kukoc, Luc Longley, Rick Fox, my dutch countryman Rick Smits, and Band of Horses favourite Detlef Schrempf.

    Thanks for making my point for me...Dirk couldnt lead his team to a lesser team (2006) and then proceeded to get shytted on by the Warriors in the 1st round a year later depite being a 1 seed with 67 wins,he completely disappeared in that series...as most overrated euros do when it gets physical and tough....not to say i dont like Dirk but he is not capable of leading a team to a ship....Nash is not a euro/overseas player and he is considered intl but isnt really he plays an american style having gone
