Season after season, the Mavs have fielded some of the most internationally diverse rosters in the NBA. Dallas puts forth a tremendous amount of effort in international scouting and we’ve seen the fruits of the club’s labor: Germany’s Dirk Nowitzki is about to become the sixth-leading scorer in NBA history.
I’m back at it…this time direct from the homeland…Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. I’m actually here now with my family and what I affectionately call “Team Villanueva” for a special NBA event – Basketball Without Borders (more on this in my next post). We arrived yesterday, here for about a week or so, and last night, I got a chance to break bread with my two older brothers, Rob C & Rob E, plus my good friend, Burton Chawla.
