Basketball savant Jamal Crawford believes that the international way of team play hurt USA in the past during their losses.


What makes international basketball different than the NBA?

– from Stacy in Indianapolis, IN

International basketball is more focused on the team game. They attack as a unit versus more individualism of just attacking and seeing what’s there. I think that’s why in the past, the USA has had some issues because they would play more as individuals and their opponents played more as a team.
