The Portland Trail Blazers head coach Chauncey Billups revealed why he loves to see players participating in international competitions.

“I love to see guys go play on their national teams,” Billups told Eurohoops from Cologne, Germany where he currently is to see Jusuf Nurkic leading Bosnia. “Because you’re playing the right way. You’re playing with a purpose and obviously because of that experience you’ll be in shape.”
