Recently, Sergio Scariolo, the head coach of the Spanish national basketball team, actually said that in his opinion Spanoulis is the best European player today. Meaning the best European player including NBA players. So the guy that coaches current and former NBA players like the Gasol brothers, Rubio, Calderon, Ibaka, Navarro, Rudy Fernandez, Claver on Spain's national team is saying Spanoulis is better than they are.
Yes, Ricky Rubio's own national team head coach is saying Spanoulis is a better point guard than him.
Spanoulis can replace Steve Blake if Nash is able to come back healthy, or if Nash can't get healthy again, he can replace Nash.
I am providing video evidence of what Spanoulis can do in the form of current 2012-13 season YouTube videos.
