If Deng is considered to be British, then Gordon should be considered as an American.

[quote author=Colts will win the Superbowl link=board=8;threadid=18037;start=585#msg598820 date=1170362982]
While the Lakers ended their losing streak in Boston comfortably Kobe getting 42 points a long road trip in places like Indiana and cleveland sligthtly unbalanced I think
[/quote]

well any trip for those teams to cali is the same, its just the nature of the nba and the size of the country
[/quote]

I meant it as in length of Road trip and how ridiculous it is to play 8 games straight on the Road

I think the circumstances are very different -
the point is Gordon was born, here thus can play for Britain, now since is unlikely despite being a really good player to get international recognition for USA, whoever is in charge of British Basketball should be all over him like a rash to play for us...

Gordon would never play for anyone other than than the US.

My point was that Deng was born in Sudan, yet is considered English because he stayed there until he was 15/16, and even though Gordon was born in England, he barely stayed there, yet people claim him to be English. Seems hypocritical to be honest.

Why would he play for the British team?

I'm sure he'd much rather play with the country that he's been living in for most of his life which is already a solid team, with some of his team-mates from the Bulls than a below average British team.

I see so you don't know you are guessing. Fair enough. Except he has little to no chance of getting in the US squad, there are too many talented scorers/shooters for him to get in. Therefore his best chance of international hoops is with us.

If you mean common sense, instead of guessing, then you're right. Battier got into the American team despite only being good on defense, much like Bowen. I could see him getting into the American team fine.
