I just noticed there are 3 very good latino pg's in the league now, for a while it was only Carlos Arroyos .. Now there's Greivis Vasquez, Ricky Rubio, Jose Calderon and to some extent jj barea, Pablo prigioni ... Just some fun facts since I'm proud and have 2 on my fantasy team... Lol

Politically speaking, wouldn't it be Hispanic, not Latino? But back to the point, basketball's popularity in Spain has been high for a while now, and we're beginning to see some products from that.

I doubt that an Italian and 2 Spaniards would want to be called "latinos."

Who's this Italian you speak of? lol and I guess ur right the spaniards wouldn't be considered Latino being they are from Europe and not from Latin America ..

Hispanic i guess would be a better word here. But I like the word Latino better because it encompassed more Spanish speaking cultures ...

Vasquez and JJ Barea are the only Latinos. The other 3 have latin descent but are considered Europeans.

To me, this is the golden age for white point guards. Kirk Hinrich leading the pack.

Is Jeremy Lin hispanic or latino?
"He hears the crescendoing last chords of the national anthem and sees the great open horseshoe of the grandstand and that unfolding vision of the grass that always seems to mean he has stepped outside his life - the rubbed shine that sweeps and bends from the raked dirt of the infield out to the high green fences. It is the excitement of a revealed thing."
