1st team in the nba to start 4 foreign-born players???
 
E. Ginobili
T. Parker
T. Duncan
B. Bowen
F. Oberto

if the spurs go with this line up on opening day will they be the 1st team in the nba to start 4 foreign-born players? i couldn t think of any other team off the top of my head. can anyone here confirm this?

from waht i understand tim was born in the Virgin Islands.

of the few games the spurs have played this season oberto has started. possibility that pop keeps it like this for the regular season. oberto has a good chance to keep his spot b/c he has had a year of practice to pick up the offensive & defensive schemes the spurs deploy.
