Completely throwing out the statement "(Insert country here) play basketball?" Is really wrong and ignorant. Its about the same as labeling the english as rugby / football / cricket fans and don't know anything about baseball / basketball and american football.
Man iran has been playing horrible. They got beat by an avg of like 25ppg. Now hamed played awesome. But the rest of his team were really lacking talent.
Im not agreeing with grizzled,on sterotyping countries. But when I think of sports and iran nothing really comes to mind. I think its great that they are beginning to build a history in basketball. Hopefully in the future they will have a solid foundation.
