Default Foreign Players

I've neen saying this for years now.PPL in recent history have voiced their backlash against HS players and their affect on the draft and NBA when they dont pan out but I think foreign players have ruined the draft and the NBA FAR worse.Teams waste draft picks on guys who wind up not showing up. Guys come over and wind up not looking how they did overseas because the game is totally different.Players fail to learn the language and cause communication barriers.I think David Stern should have addressed this issue a while ago.Even b4 the HS issue.

Default Re: Foreign Players

The Majority of foreign players that have hung around in the L have been reserve players, some starters at best.

Players like Dirk don't come around too often.

I don't know what type of restriction can be placed on players from overseas, but I do believe if a player is under contract somewhere else (like Rubio), then they should not be able to enter the draft.

Default Re: Foreign Players

especially since you are only allowed to pay like 500k to buy them out.Its really stupid.Besides,the best players in the league are made up of alot of HS stars.LeBron,Kobe and Dwight to name a few.I'm not sayin I dont agree with the rule (i actually think it should be two years or age 20 for multiple reasons),im just sayin there were bigger fish to fry.
