-      FIBA 2013 WORLD CUP PODCAST ON NBA.COM EPISODE 172 - JOHN DIMOPOULOS

 

-              NATURALIZED CITIZEN RULE IN FIBA MUST BE ABOLISHED

EJBB always thought that the Naturalized Citizen Rule in FIBA play has been a JOKE, Imagine

benching heritage or born in that nation players, to grab a guy, who most times is a

USA born PG and instead of just maybe blending in to his new team, the USA PG many times

takes almost half the shots of the new national squad NOT named  USA he has joined.

 

Nick Calathes is also a USA born PG who is playing for Greece in this World Cup, but the MAJOR

difference is he has Greek heritage and NBA MVP Giannis Antetekounmpo, even with no Greek

herritage, was born in Greece. how hard is it for the federations that use this STUPID & IDIOTIC

FIBA Rule, how can these nations not have Heritage pride & cut players from senior national

teams that have played in junior events for years ??  The Rule is a JOKE and in this 2019 FIBA

World Cup Turkey a nation of 80 MILLION people, thinks it is alright to cut a HERITAGE

player and go with USA guard Scottie Wilbekin.  Turkey is not the only nation using this JOKE

FIBA Rule at the 2019 World Cup, BELOW is a List of USA players that nations are going with

and handing them a national team jersey, in hopes of advancing to knockout play.

As EJBB said in past Naturalized Rants it is not the USA players fault, they are just playing

but the fault is with national federations giving in to this JOKE Rule. Bravo to nations that

still go with HERITAGE players.
