Many basketball fans only focus on the stars or the best player in the team and give little attention to average players. At times you may make remarks like “wow! I didn’t know this player is still playing”.

There are some NBA stars that played very well and had a bright future but disappeared into thin air. This did not happen because they no longer wanted to play basketball, rather it is because they are no longer playing in the United States.

Over the years, there have been a handful of players who have found success outside America.
