76ers Blast CSKA

The Philadelphia 76ers beat CSKA , 85-71 to wind up on top of the 4 team mini tournament . Yesterday , the Allan Iverson led team nosed out the Phoenix Suns . Maccabi Tel Aviv was the 4th team . The victory salvaged some pride for the NBAers after the losses suffered by the LA Clippers to CSKA in an exhibition match last week and of course , Philadelphia's surprise defeat to FC Barcelona in another exhibition match. The Sixers limited their opponents to a low shooting percentage . Dalembert has 5 blocks aside from registering a double double in points and rebounds as he totally dominated the middle.
So talk about the NBA coaches ' lack of techniques ' as said by one European coach is rubbish. It is acknowledged that European teams or the rest of the world's basketball knowhow has improved . But to say that US basketball is declining is erroneous . One has to note the Euro teams carry American players . In fact , CKSA has 3 starters who are American - Holden , Langdon and Vanderpool. ' Top CSKA player , Papalokaus earns 5 million a year ' said ESPN Analyst Bill Walton of the CKSA forward/guard . ' That's about 1/5 of what Sixer Chris Webber earns ' he added . That's a big difference . No wonder most Euro players aspire to be in the NBA even if they end up as back ups . Like Sarunas Jasikevicius of Indiana Pacers.
