I see Irving as an American who was born overseas. Similar ways to Army babies but in Irving's case his father was playing ball in Australia.

Thompson and Joseph basically American? :oldlol:

So playing college ball makes you an American automatically?

They left their home country to play basketball here because they know basketball in their country sucks dick. I'm just saying that basketball is America's sport and it's not even close to being a "world" sport. We dominate, the end.

You're missing the point...no one's saying anyone is better than the US at basketball. It was meant to point out how NBA level players are being produced at all parts of the world now due to the global influence of basketball.

Not a world sport? People are balling all over the world. China has so many players in their leagues you wouldn't believe.

People through national federations are proud that we can finally produce equal level talent, it affects a lot of people and don't underestimate that. It's a beautiful thing and it's good for the overall improvement of the sport.

Irving is no more Australian than my father is Japanese (born on Air Force base).

All others are valid, though.
