Euros are mostly penetrate and pitch. They pass better than Americans,

but don't cut much. They just look to get it outside for 3's. It might be due to bigger lane. They pass in so they can get inside out passes for the 3.

That's why Joker likes playing with NBA players. They'll cut, give and go etc. Euros look to drive or shoot. Watch a Spanish or French league. Boring basketball.

The Nigerians and Australians play an exciting style of basketball. Nigeria will be a major international force in a few years. Maybe by next Olympics.

The 3 pointer changed basketball more than any other single rule change in any other sport.
