    I'm just taking note that there are several Italian players in the NBA now, and some others of Italian descent.
    These guys would make a pretty good team:

    Andrea Bragnani - starting forward/center, Toronto
    Dino Gallinari - starting forward, Denver
    Manu Ginobili - guard, from Argentina of Italian descent
    Marco Belinelli - starting guard for Chicago
    Pablo Prigioni - backup guard for the Knicks from Argentina
    Luis Scola - starting forward for Phoenix. Might be Italian descent
    Carlos Delfino - sometimes starting forward for Houston. Probably Italian descent.

    San Antonio played Chicago last night and Belinelli lead the Bulls with 21 pts and 7 assists, while Ginobili lead the Spurs with 18 pts and 9 assists.

    Luis Scola and Carlos Delfino are indeed Italian descent.

    I love watching them. Scola has a decent back to the basket game and shows more IQ on the court than those yo yo yo affletes.

    Carlos Delfino is handsome and can shoot 3s.

    Andrea Bargnani is out for the year with an elbow injury. :(

    Bargnani has been traded to the Knicks; and Marco Belinelli will sign with San Antonio.
