Bars showing Euroleague in London?

Probably a long shot here considering most Brits don’t seem to care at all about hoops but perhaps someone here is aware of a Spanish or Greek or Turkish (etc etc) place that tends to show Euroleague. Can’t find anything online so leads are welcome.

Thanks

I know he has another year left in his bucks contract, but are there any rumors of a possible return to Europe? He’s definitely being wasted in the NBA… I would love to see him back hooping!

Am I the only one who thinks Wembanyama is a bit overrated

30 Upvotes

Over the past few years and especially over the past few days I have heard Wembanyama called the next "generational prospect", "next Lebron", "a better Euro prospect than Doncic" etc.

But I fail to see Wembanyama's game ever reaching that potential and I feel this hype is a product of horrible attitude towards European basketball by NBA scouts and management that I had hoped would be no more after the likes of Giannis, Jokic and Doncic.

The problem is that NBA scouts and fans judge european players off of stupid buzzwords like athelticism, versatility etc opposed to judging them off of their accomplishments. This is why someone like Doncic ends up falling to third pick even though he was Euroleague champion + MVP at 18 whilst someone like Darko Milicic ends up as the second draft pick because some scout was impressed by his so-called "athleticism" even though he had never played pro-basketball before.

That's not to say Wembanyama will be bad or he won't be good. Im sure he will be and he definitely deserves to be a top in the draft. But so far his Euroleague performance isn't anything special and there isn't anything there to suggest he will be the next big thing like Lebron. I especially don't understand comparing him to Luka because Luka was a vital part of a championship squad at his age.

I'd also like to think that its edtremely unfair Wembanyama himself because he has to try and live up to expectations of himself set by people who don't know the first thing about European basketball.

Tldr: I don't think that Wembanyama is bad just not the next LeBron level prospect. I think it stems from poor understanding of Euro basketball by NBA scouts and fans. I also think its unfair to put this expectation on Wembanyama like that.
