Ask McFartnuggets: "Why Do NBA Teams Keep Drafting European Players?"

This could be the next Jordan.
You never know!
Dear McFartnuggets: 
How come NBA teams keep taking chances on Serbian players with super long last names who never end up being good? 99 out of 100 times they end up never even playing in America they just stay in Europe and people forget about them. There are so many examples of European players who were draft busts and only a handful of them who became good like Dirk Nowitzki and Pau Gasol. And barely any good players have ever come from Serbia so why would a team draft some guy named Bogdan Bogdanovic? Just by the name you can tell he won't be a star. Nike isn't going to be selling any Air Bogdanovic sneakers. Why not just take a player from America who can contribute immediately to the team instead of taking a long shot that rarely ever has paid off in NBA history? -- Todd from Key West

Dear Todd:
You can never tell who’s going to be good out of a draft pool. Maybe one day there will be a super good player with a twenty letter last name. There’s no scientific reason why there wouldn’t be. With that in mind, I’m sure the basketball GMs just take each player based on their merits as athletes and don’t take into consideration country of origin.
