That was the whole joke on you, please explain how South Africa is "like a seperate continent," I'd love to hear this. By that same logic, is Japan not part of Asia because they are generally better off than the rest of Asia? :

Deke
Hakeem

Thumbs up

What about some Nigerian players? :)

Hakeem Olajuwon
Emeka Okafor
Andre Iguodala
Micheal Olowokandi (It kills me just to type his name. He's such a loser.)
Kelenna Azubuike
Ime Udoka
Ike Diogu

Yes, I'm aware that majority of these peeps were not born in Nigeria/Africa. Oh well.

Are you serious right now with this comment? Where were you going with this? Why does it feel seperate from the rest of the continent? Because it has a vast amount of White people actually living there? Because when people talk about visiting the place they would say "I went to South Africa" instead of "I went to Africa"? Please, enlighten me.

I agree. Now when you guys make the "All European Team" do not include players from Eastern Europe because it's like a whole different continent then Western Europe, which is where all the celebrities and rich people go.

BTW this would be my African team (current players):

PG:Steve Nash
SG: Deng
SF:
PF: Diop/Olowakandi
C:Mutombo/Benga

Uhm, many of these players arent african born. Being a Muslim or having a named derived from arabic or african languages does not make you african.
