That's strange, since both his parents are English.

Does this include the careers that the players had in their leagues. If so then this line up is not a great option.

Manu is Italian-Argentine. Let's seriously not have this xenophobic American stuff here again.

FYI, unlike America, South Korea does NOT have jus soli "birthright by citizenship" so unless you was born in South Korea to parents who were stateless, you cannot legally, technically, or racially call yourself Korean.

Nash was born in South Africa to English parents. He grew up in Canada. Therefore, he has dual Canadian-British citizenship, and can also then be a citizen of South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, etc, if he so wanted to.

Because he was born to two parents whom are citizens of the United Kingdom.

Besides you should probably include some none NBA players.

You actually expect him to have any real basketball knowledge?

You could make team Australasia and mix Asia and Australia. Australia has Bogut, Mills and Kyrie if you want to include him (born in Australia but left early).

A Bogut and Yao frontcourt would dominate everyone.

Default Re: All-time Foreign Teams.

Turkish and Russian players can be considered both Asian and or European so…

ASIA:

-Jeremy Lin (China/Taiwan)
-Bazarevich or Voronov (I don't know any Asian elite SG) (Both Russian)
-Kirilenko (Rusia)
-Mehmet Okur (Turky)
-Yao (China)

Excellent center, great forwards and point guard (considering Lin could maintain last two games level for an entire tournament, which I doubt). It lacks elite shooting guard though. I think it wouldn't be enough to beat Europe and/or Africa all-time squads.
