Are you meaning world wide?

I'm half and I love it. But in the US, not so sure about that, but most of my asian friends love basketball a lot then again I love all major team sports.

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

I think with another scoring option who's tough minded at the very least(and somewhat respectable on D) that team really becomes scary. Not just they might kill my family scary, but talent on the court scary.

wrong, blacks like bball more than asians (and it's not even close).

Also i'm basing this on America, not world wide cause we know those African tribes don't even have a tv.

I was going to say the same thing but it's not close in America. WW, Chinese skew numbers so bad.

recipe for disaster; or most fun team of all time? if only they had sheed, too.

one thing that needs to be mentioned is Ron has been DPOY. He's not just decent at defense; he's elite. His PER is inflated due to usage, which is the fault of PER, but he's still a reliable penetrator and for someone who does play hero is a good passer for his position. The cons are headcase and injuries, tho, which do count for something

Re: Modern Era NBA Build a Franchise Draft Discussion

They estimated in China 200+ million people watched the Yao-Yi first matchup. That's redonkulous. I don't think regular season NBA games on TNT/ESPN are watched by more than 2 million for most games.

If u are talking about world wide (which I highly doubt since u mentioned it about meeting people which I assume in America) then you are right.

If you are talking about America only, absolutly no chance that asians like basketball more than blacks.

Um no, Stockton wasn't a good enough player so he didn't get a gm job, McHale was hence him getting a gm job.

Well it was rumored that Stockton drank a ton of milk throughout his career which helped him stay strong/healthy, but I think he was drinking the same thing u do, which is why u drafted him (and it looks like milk and has protein).

I'll give u a hint, it comes from the thing i'm quoting.
