Asian Americans in Basketball
Asian league basketball through the ages hasn’t produced too many stars on the court. I even played a season in Japanese American league basketball, only to realize that I sucked. In my first season, I scored 1 basket and it happened in the last game. I often wondered why did we have a segregated league, and what happened to the very best players. In the past, most of the best players went to high school and never tried out for the high school team. Instead they were content starring in a league of players – some of who were like me. Now it’s changing, players are taking that step and kicking ass on their own high school teams. It’s happening more with the females who are playing in college and the rare ones making it to the WNBA.
It’s pretty obvious why an article like this is pertinent today. (Colorlines – bball)
