Default Re: Why is the United States so much better at basketball than the rest of the world?

This one is extremely easy:

1) number of players
2) money invested in High School and College basketball
3) tradition (better coaches even at low levels)

Why are Spain, Germany, Brazil, Italy, and many more (even Portugal) so much better at football than the USA?

1) number of players
2) money invested in youth systems
3) tradition (better coaches even at low levels)

It works like that with every single sport. You can overcome the poor tradition by investing money in bringing the best coaches in the world to your country and replicating their system.
