Arsalan Kazemi spoke about the travel restrictions from Jordan, where he is competing with the Iranian national team in the West Asia Basketball Association championships. I was 17 years old when I came to the U.S. to play basketball. As the first player from my country to receive a Division I scholarship, I hoped my experience would open the way for other kids from Iran who dream of doing the same thing. The day I arrived, I was at the airport for six hours. A woman brought me into a separate room and started asking me crazy questions, like if I was a terrorist. But after that, people were very nice to me. That’s why I decided to stay. Otherwise, I would have left and never looked back.

Arsalan Kazemi: To graduate from Oregon and be chosen in the NBA draft was a dream come true. I hoped that would make it easier for other players from Iran to do the same thing, but with everything that’s happening right now, I’m afraid families in Iran will be afraid to send their kids to the U.S. The thing is, it’s kind of hard for scouts to come through Iran, and it’s even harder for these kids to come to the U.S. for camps. If the relationships get better, maybe it can be easier. Right now it’s just super hard.
