The angst extended to the defensive side, too. Porter didn’t just arrive with new principles. He ran the veterans through exhausting fundamental drills — fire feet, blow the whistle, dive after the fake loose ball. “Hoosiers”-type stuff, things that’ll infuriate established, aging veterans like Nash, Grant Hill and Shaq during the middle of a tiring season.

The considerable talent to come stateside includes Nicolas Batum, Boris Diaw, former Celtic Mickael Pietrus, and Ian Mahinmi. “There’s always some players coming up,” Gobert said. “A lot of times, I don’t have time to follow up on all of them, they’re already in the NBA. So there’s always some good talent. I think the guys that really helped are Tony Parker and Boris. They gave us a bit of credibility and now scouts all over the world realized there was so much talent. It’s great for France and all the other countries.”
