January 06 News Recently, NBA star Isiah Thomas talked on a program
International players to the NBA.
Isaiah Thomas said: “International players have performed very well in the NBA in recent years. The last 4 MVPs have been won by international players, Jokic 2 times, Giannis 2 times, and Embiid almost won.
, That’s the battle between Embiid and Jokic. Now the top 4 scorers in the league are all international players (Doncic, Embiid, Antetokounmpo, Alexander), why are international players so good in the game?”
“The United States has the NCAA college basketball league. American players stay in college for 3 or 4 years and only play for 6 months, while international players do not. But many international players start playing professional games at the age of 16, and some are 15.
They’re already competing against grown-ups, so they’ve got a lot of hands-on experience.”
