   The best of what's left

Radoslav Nesterovic - Rasho has had a career which has been far in excess of that of almost everyone else on this list. He has been a good player for many years, even once the starter on a title winning team. Now into the 18th season of his professional career, Rasho is very much on the backslide of his career; nevertheless, he remains productive, blocking some shots, rebounding averagely, and hitting jumpshots.

In an exciting piece of additional trivia, Rasho amazingly attempted only 5 free throws all of last season, compared to 149 field goals. This isn't really indicative of anything; I just wanted to say it.

   An Unnecessarily Exhaustive Guide To The Euroleague Final Eight

The Reds shed a lot of payroll last summer, proof that even the richest and most magnanimous of rich guys felt a pinch in the last two calendar years. Linas Kleiza and Josh Childress were allowed (if not encouraged) to return to the NBA, as did Patrick Beverley, and the Big Sofo era finally ended when he moved to Maccabi Tel-Aviv. Nikola Vujcic moved to Turkey (via Croatia), the remnants of Scoonie Penn moved to the Lega Due, and essentially, half of the rotation had been turned over.

Of course, they still retooled. As Kleiza went to the Raptors, Rasho Nesterovic came back from there, providing Olympiakos with that rarest of beasts - the big slow unathletic European centre who recognises he still has more to give in the paint than behind the three point line. Rasho averages 11.1 points and 5.6 rebounds in only 21 minutes per game of Euroleague action, having a decent bounce-back season after looking worryingly done last year. (He's also gotten to the free throw 68 times in 34 games, his highest total since getting there 114 times in 2,353 minutes in 82 games in 2003-04. Less jumpers, more clattering to the basket. Let's Euroleague.)

The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
