Rise of the European Talents: Nikola Jokic, Luka Doncic, and Giannis Antetokounmpo Top NBA Skills; Kevin Garnett Discusses Their Impact on NBA and Boston Celtics’ Chances in Finals

The European Invasion of the NBA: A Historical Perspective

In today’s NBA, the top three players are European talents: Nikola Jokic, Luka Doncic, and Giannis Antetokounmpo. They are considered the most skilled players in the league. The Boston Celtics also boast two of the top 20 talents in Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.

Recently, on a podcast episode of “KG Certified,” former Celtics champions Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce discussed the rise of European talent in the NBA and why it’s now common to see top-tier players coming from overseas. Garnett even referenced Adam Sandler’s movie “Hustle” as proof of this elite level of talent in the league.

If the Celtics do face Doncic’s Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals, Garnett will closely watch how coach Joe Mazzulla’s team tries to contain Doncic and find a way to stop his potent offensive threat. The full discussion can be accessed through an embedded link provided.
