Cliffs: NBA players are allowed to play overseas during the lockout as long as they return back to the NBA once the lockout is over. They have to be cleared by the NBA first though who have already allowed partial clearance.

Be fun to watch how they go overseas in the meantime. But I wouldn't want Kobe to play there, rather him take it easy for the next few months to rehab himself and get into better shape. Would love to see the younger guys (Lebron, Durant) dominate overseas.

This is how it is for sports in other countries. American fans are so tame compared to foreign fans.

soccer fans are crazy, but thats about it in Europe.... the basketball fanbase is absolute garbage.. those videos posted are the exception. and how could you say american fans are so tame when we have college football/bball fans...?
