Kirilenko is from Russia. When did Russia become part of Europe?
Deng is from Sudan, which is in Africa genius. It just has strong ties to England.

Just fyi, the european part of russia takes up about 40% of mainland europe and ~80% of the russian population lives in the european parts. Even though siberia is a lot bigger then european russia, Russia is for for all intents and purposes an european nation.

The other two certainly weren't born in europe, but moved here as kids.
