Collectivistic Basketball

Evin Demirel reblogged this on The Sports Seer and commented:

Interesting look at the national team of Finland, where Scottie Pippen played a few games after his NBA retirement: "Their collective decision-making has become automatized to a degree that will not be achieved by any other team in the World Cup. There is no hesitation, no delays, no second-guessing.
That’s the reason why rumors about NBA veteran Drew Gooden joining the Wolfpack in the last minute never sounded plausible to me. I thought Gooden would have damaged the collectivism of the team, and the net gain would have been negative. "

Report: Wizard’s Drew Gooden to play for Finland in World Cup

Things I did not know before today: Drew Gooden is half Finnish. As in he has citizenship in Finland.

His father, a former professional basketball player, met his mother while playing in Finland, something he told ESPN’s Jemele Hill a few years back (hat tip to Eye on Basketball). 294 more words
