    I have heard of most of the possible prospects for the upcoming draft except for this guy.

    I would like to know more about him.

    Please post in this thread if you have seen or know about Nachbar's game, and how you think he could help our team.

    I am from Europe and I can tell you this guy has never really stood out anywhere and there is no real indication that he might be an upgrade over even T-Mo or Langhi (except that he might be a bit better shooter). Let's not draft this guy.

    I've seen real many his games and he's real deal. He's not next Stojakovic, because he has another style of playing. He has very strong basketball fundaments, he is do-it-all player, not definetly only shooter like many Europeans. If you like Radmanovic, he is much better player. He can be at least new Turkoglu. I think he is probably the best comparision to Nachbar.
    I will take him. He is profesionalist, he make a ball movement. IMO the biggest difference beetwen Europe and NBA is ball movement. Europe play very modern basketball and Nachbar is a perfect product of European basketball.

    Those of you harping on bad stats from the European league need to understand that playing time is granted differently there than in the NBA. Simply because you're better doesn't mean you'll get a lot of playing time. I remember last year several people knocking Pau Gasol simply because he only averaged about 20 mins/game and his stats were below average to average at best. Evaluation of European (and other national) talent is best done by flying your scouts and coaches overseas or watching video footage. This is exactly what's going on with Nickoloz Tskitishvili (I may have butchered the spelling of that). He's hardly even played, yet is probably among the 1-3 most-sought-after foreign players in this draft as well as maybe even being a top-10 or 12 pick as it stands right now.

    His heroics against Malone is still one of my favorite Rockets moments. Doc Rivers' commentary was so spot too.

    He's probably still better than Corey Brewer.

    Could be that Jabba the Hut looking costume. That looks tall enough to be legal.
