Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks Forward:

"Yeah, it’s been fun to watch over the last two decades, where the game started internationally and where it is now. The game has grown globally, whether China, Australia, Africa, Europe ... you know, South America. We’ve got more and more players - I think we’ve got 150 international players in the league or more so it’s been fun to watch the growth and most players or a lot of players, you know, don’t just come in and are players but are franchise players. They have an impact in their communities and that’s been fun to watch, to see the game grow globally."

Tony Parker, Charlotte Hornets Guard:

"I think it’s great, I think it’s great for the league - that’s what they want, a world league. And you’ve got guys coming from everywhere and anybody now in the world, you know if you work hard you can come and play in the NBA."

Tony Parker, Charlotte Hornets Guard:

"I just think the trust, you know, in those players now and you know you can find talent anywhere."
