"I put points on your face!" - Rudy Fernandez to Pau Gasol.

 

Player's Nationalities And Passports





This list lists the nationality of all non-American players in this website's player database.

It attempts to list the passports of all players, and not necessarily just the country that they play for. For example, David Logan is American through and through, but he played in Poland for long enough to be able to obtain a Polish passport through residency. That passport helps his career, as it qualifies him as a European player, which means he's no longer bound by the quotas on American players that most European teams have. Many players have done the same thing, such as Spencer Nelson, Omar Cook and Shammond Williams.

Sometimes, players will actually use these nationalised passports to play a country not initially their own. Logan is one such example, as are Darius Washington and Hiram Fuller. And some people with joint nationalities are just of genuine mixed heritage, with no reasons of politicking or convenience behind their multiple passports.

If someone's American, they're not on this list. The only American players listed are those with at least one other passport, such as Logan. This list can be kind of useful for knowing who has a European passport (see Logan), as well as just being fun for trivia.

Also not included are people eligible for passports that they don't have. But, for the record, Robert Swift is part-Japanese, and Drew Gooden is half-Finnish.
