Brazil Tiago Splitter San Antonio Spurs is someone I'm looking forward in seeing in the NBA one day. He is suppose to be San Antonio next guy like Manu.
the microwave great research on the topic.
The teams that have the most players overseas are the Thunder and the Blazers, the NBA's young up-and-comers it shows that they are patient and after being at the bottom for a while, dont need to spend big-name FA'S and decide to develop players here as well as overseas, same as the Spurs, the second best team(after the Lakers) in the post Jordan era theyve always loved overseas guys look at Parker, Ginobli,etc... theyre another great developer of talent, while on the flip side the Knicks and the Lakers have no guys on their list showing how a huge fan and media base effects drafting and developing players, also the Clippers and Bulls each have only one guy, as do the Mavericks, where an owner like Mark Cuban is a win-now guy, not about to wait for young raw, foreign talent
I didn't even realize we have so many oversea players.
HAHAHAHAHHAHA Weiss!!! Houston has his rights!!!
Isn't Weiss the guy that got dunked on by Carter in the Olympics??
Oh gawd...he is.
But, um David Andersen is coming over this year and I'm looking forward to him since the Rockets don't have much options at Center anymore. We also have Marty Leunen who seems solid and came out of Oregon as well as Brad Newley who is from Australia just like D. Andersen. Li...something, out of Israel is another project of ours. Lastly, Sergio Llull, athletic Spanish Point Guard. I'm looking forward to him and Brad Newley in the future for us. The others...I don't see them becoming much in the NBA.
