The post Jordan NBA seen an increase in international players joining the NBA. The 2000s were truely an international league as players from every corner of the globe started joining the NBA and many of them, such as Dirk Nowitzki, started to find success in the league.
The NBA began life as the Basketball Association of America in 1946 and played under that monkier for 3 years before, in 1949, merging with the National Basketball League and changing names to the NBA. The BAA started out with 11 teams in 1946 but lost four of them before the start of the next season. Despite the loss of four teams the BAA was having a lot of success against its rival the NBL and was able to entice four of the NBL’s premire franchises to join the BAA in 1948.
No question, Tiger Woods took golf to new heights not even the great Arnold Palmer and rival Jack Nicklaus never brought it to. But just as Woods took the sport to the top, he nearly brought it down all by himself. The scandals, controversies and every negative stuff about Tiger hurt the sport, at least from the American perspective.
