Default 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...

Lebron
Wade
John Wall
Melo
Rose
Rondo
CP3
Josh Smith
Dwight Howard
etc.

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.
