I wonder who is behind the conspiracy that's made basketball so popular in the rest of the world since the late 80s, early 90s. Because, you know, a country's sporting interests don't change without a devious plot.
Basketball was played and the kids saw it being played and had heros based on the sports.
Lets go ask 100 kids playing basketball in Europe who their favorite player is. Bet they will all have some.
Lets ask 100 kids playing soccer in America who their favortie soccer player is. Would they all even have one?
Why are kids playing a game with little fan support and no heros to emulate?
