you can never play for one national squad if you already played for some other one. rules, not choice.

Ok, I'll be honest. I had forgotten about Kobe's italian citizenship. I only had in mind Kobe playing for team USA and the rule sharas mentioned.

What I was criticizing is that it seemed when people heard "go to play to Italy" they were thinking the italian team, not the italian domestic league.

And back on topic, it should be an interesting duel at SF for years to come between Galinari and Batum whenever France goes against Italy.
