Italbasket head coach Gianmarco Pozzecco compared Vasa Micic and Shabazz Napier for La Gazzetta dello Sport on the day of Efes-Olimpia Milano match.
He said, “Shabazz Napier has talent, he is intelligent and has personality. Qualities necessary to lead a high-level team. The main difference with Micic is that he is American, in the sense that he has a different playing style. I am convinced that the big teams in Euroleague have all had a European playmaker: Papaloukas, Diamantidis, Spanoulis, Chacho Rodriguez. With all due respect, Americans have something less because they play differently, it’s physiological. Without the ball, for example, they are more disinterested in the game.”
