International players focus on team
While American basketball has focused on the individual, throughout the world the focus has stayed on the team.
Basketball has been showcased around the world, and now there's a consistency of excellent play by some great international players and teams.
I would like to see a U.S. celebration of the greatness and talent of international players. In a very real way, it's a celebration of our uniquely American game. American coaches and players have gone to Europe and China and Australia -- and we've taught the game of basketball well.
