Finally — and this factor should not be underestimated even though economic globalization has been slowed by a political backlash — the NBA has more of a global following than any other sport other than soccer. The NBA’s global success is heavily attributed to the fact that its players increasingly come from abroad. In the 2018 playoffs, for example, the number of international players hit a peak of 62, originating from 33 different countries. The winner this year, the Raptors, not only for the first time came from outside the U.S., but also their roster is heavily international, including center Marc Gasol, rising star Pascal Siakam and several players on its bench, notably Serge Ibaka and OG Anunoby (who was injured in the playoffs but is sure to get much more playing time this year). In 2017-18, the number of international players in the league topped 100, for the fourth straight year.
What were some of the biggest lessons you learned while you played for Indiana? JM: I learned how to work hard. When I was in high school, I was the best player on the court. But it was different in college. I was going against guys who wanted to do this for the rest of their lives. It was a different type of path and I was introduced to a new kind of work ethic. I also learned to be a pro at everything that I did. I took care of my body. I was punctual. Yogi Ferrell and OG Anunoby super helpful with that.
