Extractions: Basketball Digest , April, 2003 by Reggie Theus NO, IT'S NOT A NEW TREND, international players making a mark in the NBA. But it's a refreshing one. Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks and Predrag Stojakovic of the Sacramento Kings are skilled in the ways that older generations of basketball players were skilled: ball-handling, passing, cutting, and shooting. Today, those skills are somewhat of a lost art. I played in Europe, if there's one thing all European players can do, it's shoot the ball. That's their expertise. Now, the majority of European players are not fond of playing defense; that's not their expertise.

Next > Reebok Signs Sacremento Standout Predrag Stojakovic Canton, MA (November 13, 2003) - Today, Reebok announces it has signed a multi-year endorsement agreement with Sacramento Kings' phenom Predrag "Peja" Stojakovic. Widely considered one of the best shooters in the league, Stojakovic is the reigning "NBA All-Star 3 Point Shoot-Out" champion for 2003 and 2002. The 6'9, 26-year-old native of Belgrade, Serbia-Montenegro will wear Reebok's NBA Mad Talent II on-court. Hitting retail on February 1st, the shoe will be available for a suggested retail price of $75. Stojakovic will also play an integral part in basketball marketing campaigns leading up to the 2004 Summer Games in Athens. Stojakovic's strong performance as a starting forward for the Kings earned him a spot on the Western Conference team in the 2003 and 2002 NBA All-Star Games. Prior to becoming the Kings' first-round draft pick on June 15, 1998, Stojakovic played professionally for three seasons in Greece. His sure shot from the perimeter has helped establish the Kings as a Western Conference powerhouse, and Stojakovic has been recognized by the NBA's general managers as the third-best international player in the league, following Yao Ming of the Houston Rockets and Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks. "We are very excited to work with an international basketball icon such as Peja," said John Lynch, vice president of Reebok sports marketing. "He will be a tremendous global endorsee for Reebok's co-branded NBA footwear, helping to drive home our position as a major force in authentic performance sports around the world."
Extractions: BELGRADE, Serbia-Montenegro Peja Stojakovic has opted out of the European Basketball Championship, but Serbia-Montenegro will have seven other NBA players on its roster. Stojakovic, of the Sacramento Kings , said he was too tired after the long NBA season to play in the 16-nation tournament in Serbia-Montenegro from Sept. 15-24, coach Zeljko Obradovic said Friday. "We are talking about a special player, the one who would mean a lot to us," Obradovic said. "Anyhow, I wish him a lot of luck in his career." Serbia-Montenegro, the two-time defending world champion, had a disappointing Olympic tournament last year in Athens, placing 11th. AP NEWS

Extractions: AP SYDNEY, Australia (AP) Andrew Gaze is making his fifth Olympics his best. Gaze scored 13 of Australia's last 15 points Thursday to lead the host country into the semifinals of the men's basketball tournament with a 65-62 victory over Italy. The 35-year-old guard is the second-leading scorer in Olympic history to Oscar Schmidt of Brazil. None of the 757 points have been any bigger than the ones down the stretch against Italy, as Australia's hopes for a gold medal stayed alive despite losing a 10-point lead midway through the second half. "We still have a couple more to go but we're really where we want to be right now," said Gaze, who had 27 points on 7-for-10 shooting, including 4 for 5 from 3-point range. The last two of those 3-pointers started his game closing run to keep Australia either in front or within a basket. His three-point play when he scored on a flip shot down low brought Australia within 60-59 with 2:09 left. He made two free throws with 1:38 left to make it 62-61.

Extractions: By Pang Cheng Wan The NBA features 49 international players from 29 countries and territories for the 2001-02 season. With five international players on the team roster of Dallas Mavericks, the Dallas Mavericks team leads the chasing pack of NBA teams in having the most number of international players. The latest crop of international rookies are already making a name for themselves alongside burgeoning superstars such as Germany's Dirk Nowitzki (Dallas Mavericks) and Yugoslavia's Peja Stojakovic (Sacramento Kings). Notably, the only Asian player who has came to ply his trade in NBA and achieved considerable success in NBA, Wang Zhizhi, hails from the worlds most populous country, China. Wang, one of China's all-time greatest basketball players, became the first player from China to play in the NBA when he joined the Dallas Mavericks in April 2001. He was selected by the Mavericks in the second round of the 1999 NBA Draft with the 36th pick. With sterling performances in the 1996 and 2000 Olympic basketball games for China, Wang captured the attention of the basketball world. In his first NBA season, he averaged 4.8 points, 1.4 rebounds in 7.6 minutes per game and scored a total of 24 points in five games. His presence in NBA serves as an fine example to many other aspiring Asian players who only dare to dream of playing in the NBA, a dream that can be fulfilled.
