Who is the best Indian basketball player ?
Basketball popularity is growing all around the world and even coronavirus couldn’t stop it. Asian countries may be the best example of its global impact! We think that at the moment we can’t aswer that question without more detailed analysis.
Trade news in every sport is often one of the most searchable terms every year.
News on free agents
Free agents market and news about it were very intruiging this offseason as teams have waited superstars to make a decision. Anthony Davis or Giannis Antetokounmpo’s extension were one of the most interesting “moves” during free agency.
John Wall-Russell Westbrook trade shocked NBA world and drama ended by James Harden fined for not showing at the training camp. “The Beard” asked for trade but The Rockets never managed to make a win-win deal with other teams that showed interest for one of the best offensive players in the world.
After couple of weeks we can make a statement: “Rockets obviously got better side of the deal” as Wizards can’t win games this season!
India basketball team – great improvements
Indian basketball team recorded great result improvements during last couple of years. Generally, playing hoops in Asia is becoming more and more popular as sport attracts more children. Governments are investing more in infrastructure and general knowledge.
Coaches are becoming better so players could learn more and improve their game both on technical and tactical end. Improvements like that could have great global impact when it comes to sports popularity:
- India is one of the rising global economies (2nd largest by population)
- Spreading the market
- Attracting more interest from Asian countries generates more income
- More income attracts investors!
- This results in infrastructure improvements and stronger national teams
- Long term – More players from India/Asia will earn their place in the NBA
India’s national team managed to improve during last couple of years as they’ve competed in FIBA’s Qualifiers. Even tough they’ve lost this Asia Cup Qualifiers match against Bahrain, Indian players showed significant improvements!
As we have entered the new decade, basketball fans should expect more improvements as we could see India to qualify for some of the future big tournaments (World Cup or Olympics).
