More proof we need to draft foreigners?
Giannis, Dirk. Duncan. Avoid AAU coddled babies and Klutch clowns. Go all international. Embrace Nola’s uniqueness and don’t try to compete with the glamour markets.

Be something completely different.

I personally don’t like most American born star nba players.

Who is likable out of these guys?

Irving
Durant
Harden
Simmons
Davis
Lebron
Kawhi
George

All either quit on their teams. Are narcissists of the highest order or just completely weird.

Very few guys like Curry, Klay, Beal, Lillard who don’t bitch constantly about joining a super team.

You could make the case that the biggest prima donna in the NBA is from Slovenia

Luka is one of the best cry babies in league and is by far the best international player in the nba. Your rant and bitching is worthless

Duncan


Duncan is from a US territory and played college basketball at Wake Forrest. That’s really stretching the definition of “foreigner”

The man was on Team USA at the 04 Olympics.

Irving and Simmons aren’t Americans.

First, you just picked not likeable dudes and asked which ones are likeable, that's a weird way to prove a point.

2nd, likeability is irrelevant, tell me what they've won. A quick glance from that list of 8 dudes, they have around 11 titles I believe.

5 of the 8 dudes have at least 1 title.

2 of these 4 dudes have a title.

That's all that matters, can they win...the list on top wins just as much, if not more than the likeable guys you posted.

Simmons also went to high school in America. I think OP is referring to the ultra sense of entitlement by American players or players who have been here since they were teenagers. A lot of these European players do seem to be more team oriented and don’t forget where the came from and how grateful they are to just be in the league

How many of them won titles with teams that drafted them? That seems relevant when discussing which players to draft, right?

ETA: the answer is 2, 3 if you want to count LeBron after he decided to go back to the team that drafted him after leaving initially.
