Was Michael Jordan more talented than Larry Bird?
Let's not be coy about the real issue here...
Nobody can match Egonu&Sylla's athleticism, power and explosiveness...
Can you say Malinov more talented than Cansu, or Danesi than Zehra or Sylla than Hande...
Thanks to African immigrants Italians are building a "Cuban" team in the middle of Europe.
And good for them.
French should take an example, I am sure thay can overmatch Italians easily.
But they don't seem to care about volleyball.
I don't watch basketball so I don't get your analogy. Malinov and Cansu was from the same generation and I have been watching both since they were playing junior NT. Cansu wasn't even starter of our NT whereas Malinov has been great since an early age. On top of her precise setting, she is a good blocker/defender too which is something Cansu severely miss. To me both Danesi and Chirichella are more talented than Zehra.
