Re: Why is the United States so much better at basketball than the rest of the world?
First we're a big f**king country.
Secondly we def got, on average, more athletic players (especially against Europeans).
But also, even our best ball players throughout history with average athleticism or so, are better than the best foreigner players with comparable athleticism.
Call it devotion or playing many times a week since a really young age, call it what you want but it's just how it is.
