It would be more interesting to see Israeli basketball players I guess

They are also very good at basketball...Maccabi-Tel-Aviv is a world class team

They probably do get more than they would in America. I bet that they never got drafted to the NBA so they had to do something else.

Peja's an idiot if he doesnt want to play for his country. He has a chance to put that tiny place on the basketball map for good.
