And the Sabonis that played in NBA in 1995 onwards is NOT the dominant Sabonis when he was in the prime.
and the competition that Sabo faced in his prime is was way inferior than the cut-throat competitive NBA.

also, the Euro league has a much easier schedule for ballers, 2 games a week and no back-to-back games.

imagine how dominant Hakeem, DRob and Ewing would be against such inferior competition,
    which plays only 2 games a week,
      with no back-to-back games,
        and no dirty players like K Malone, Dennis Rodman, Bill Lambeer, J Stockton, I Thomas, etc.
after the '88 Olympic, 3 members from Litho's Gold medal team were drafted by NBA teams. while both his teammates chose to compete in the highest level of BB,
    Sabo chose to continuing playing
    in an inferior competitive enviornment
that speaks volume of Sabo's lack of competiveness.

Fwiw, Sabonis was forbidden to play in the NBA by the USSR until 1990, so it wasn't "Sabo's lack of competitiveness" that kept him out. By then, his knees were already bad...

The USSR let the other guys play, but not Sabonis.

(and fwiw, it was a Western Conf NBA team, not an Eastern conference team)...

translation:

his teammates wanted to compete against the best, did everything under their power to see that happen

Sabo didn't try hard enough cos he was afraid to play against the tough competition.

Or...the Soviet Union didn't want their best player grinding thru his prime years on bad knees in 82 games/year in the NBA before the 1992 Olympics and possibly missing the opportunity to defending their gold medal...

...or a 1000 other possible translations....

foremost among them was that Sabo did not want to compete in the cut-throat competitive NBA.

That wouldn't explain why he ended up playing in Portland for seven seasons. Even more of a mystery would be why he would choose to play in Portland for seven seasons at a time when he was least-equipped to handle the physical demands of playing in "the cut-throat competitive NBA".

at age 31, he was no longer dominant in the Spanish League.

his time as a professional baller in demand was running out; he wanted to pick up fat paychecks, while they're still there
