What do you mean by overblown Euro stiff?
Euros have a tendency to get overblown in pre-draft hype, largely because not enough people have seen them play and its easy to manipulate people's views through video highlights, etc.
Darko Milicic is the prime example of this. There were some who thought he should be drafted ahead of Lebron, based purely upon speculation.
He was the #2 pick in a loaded draft (Anthony, Bosh, Wade came immediately after).
