    Basketball is an international game, and it’s growing. Selling video games is an international business. So maybe we shouldn’t be shocked by the news that the Euroleague has teamed up with the makers of NBA 2K14 to include 14 teams of the powerhouse overseas teams in the video game. “We’re absolutely delighted to be able…

  2. The Inbounds: NBA schmoe, International Superstar of Mystery

    Jose Calderon

    If you’re a casual NBA fan, most of the players on the Olympic teams other than Team USA don’t ring any bells. You’ll recognize a few. “Hey, that’s that point guard for the Canada team, right?” “You mean, the Toronto Raptors?” “Yeah, that’s what I said, the team in Canada.” Or: “Hey, didn’t that guy…

    We’ve been doing a lot of video game posts lately, you can blame David Stern and Billy Hunter for that. Still, this was too good a video not to pass along. NBA Jam returned last year and we were pumped. Now the On Fire edition will have some of the best of the EuroLeague for…

  4. EuroLeague wants to keep best young players in Europe. Shocker.

    Ricky Rubio Barcelona

    In a stunning development, the head of the EuroLeague would like to find a way to keep that continent’s best players over there and out of the NBA for as long as possible. Shocking a league executive would be guided by blatant self-interest. That would never happen here in America. EuroLeague CEO Jordi Bertomeu spoke…

    Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv v Real Madrid - Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four Semi Final

    There’s a lot of players throwing out the, “If there’s a lockout I’ll go play in Europe” card. Like it’s some kind of trump card. And if you’re Kevin Durant or Deron Williams or Pau Gasol and you go play for a team like Barcelona, life will be pretty darn good. But that is not…

  6. Ricky Rubio sounds like a guy going to put off NBA debut

    Mar 15, 2011, 11:26 AM EDT

    Ricky Rubio Barcelona

    Despite what Timberwolves brass has insisted, it has never made sense for Ricky Rubio to leave Barcelona and come to the NBA next season. Because it doesn’t make sense to walk into a likely lockout that could cost games. Why leave one of the top teams in Europe, Barcelona, where you are a rock star,…

  7. Ricky Rubio is struggling to shoot the rock in Europe

    Feb 10, 2011, 11:49 AM EDT

    Spain v USA

    We know, Ricky Rubio is a highlight factory. A point guard with a seemingly instinctive feel for the game. He’s been playing professionally since he was 14, he has a silver medal from the 2008 Olympics and held his own with the best the USA had to offer in the Gold Medal game. The knock…

  8. Paul Pierce wants to play one year in Europe before he retires

    Aug 19, 2010, 3:01 PM EDT

    If you talk to Mychal Thompson — the former No. 1 overall pick who may be best known for being part of the back-to-back champion Showtime Lakers — he speaks glowingly about his time playing in Greece. A lot of players do, they like the overseas experience. Paul Pierce wants that experience and told Comcast…
