HoopsHype Sarunas Marciulionis rumors
The Lithuanian Sarunas Marciulionis is credited with bringing the Euro step to the N.B.A. He played with four teams in the 1990s before it became common for international players to join the N.B.A. Ginobili then perfected and popularized the move. In the recent preseason, several Nets practiced the Euro step in their layup line. DeMar DeRozan, a second-year guard for the Toronto Raptors, said he started using the move in high school in California after watching Ginobili pull it off. “It’s different,” DeRozan said. “It’s really different. You’re showing the illusion that you’re going one way and you’re really going another. It’s a creative move.” New York Times
