Locker room talk: rolling basketball thread


Yeah seems the rest of the world is catching up on US at basketball much faster than the US is catching up to the rest of the world on footie - both in terms of depth and top level players.

I get the feeling that in basketball US has had things its own way so long that it's changed the emphasis from sporting excellence to entertainment and now we're seeing the fruits of that.

I've been digging into basketball a fair bit recently and it appears that it's best described as "the thing in the background while people argue at great length about travelling".
