Re: Why is the United States so much better at basketball than the rest of the world?
USA has the best athletes in terms of basketball athleticism. It is as simple as that.
I don't think many other countries are producing guys like Shaq, Duncan(i know), KG, T-Mac, Kobe, Lebron, CWebb etc...there may one or two a generation per country but USA has several freak athletes every generation.
Just look at the last decade...
This could be just a function of having more people. But, I still think our freak athlete to population ratio may be higher than other countries.
