Just because a great player from another country doesn't want to leave his native land to come play in the NBA, it doesn't mean he isn't among the best of players. Just my two cents!
Listen to what you're saying. Of course you'll find players overseas that are better than the NBA's worst. There just aren't many who would make any sort of significant impact, so it's moot.

There are at least 10 players in foreign leagues that could be rotation players here but choose not to. La Bamba only played one season and decided he liked Europe better. Doesn't help that he was in a town like Memphis, Wisconsin.

Actually I was in Memphis in July. It was a good town for being in the south.
You went to Memphis, Wisconsin?

Yeah, he wanted to either play in Miami or where Pau was. When Pau was traded, La Bamba was "Asta la vista" HOHOHO. Rudy Fernandez is another who could be a solid role player, but missed his mom too much to continue in the league. These are aberrations, though. There aren't any potential NBA All-Stars playing overseas.

Re: No League for Old Men

Last week at this time only 3 Lakers had ever scored 40 points and 12 assists in a game. Kobe has done it twice since then. Respect Vino!

In other news CP3 apparently will not be an all-NBA player next year. Would you give him the max this summer?
