Petteri Koponen has never played a game in the NBA despite being the final pick of the 1st round in 2007 by the 76ers and traded twice in his career (Blazers & Mavs in 2011).  So unless you are from Finland or a big fan of European basketball then there’s a good chance you have never heard of Koponen but in the opening minutes of Finlands EuroBasket game vs Spain he made his introduction by putting Ricky Rubio on skates. In defense of Rubio who doesn’t play defense, his team did crush Finland 82-56.
