    How come all the tall euros don't come dominate the nba then? That's a global sport now with leagues in many countries. What do the tall euros play?

    There are some good ones in the NBA now.. but the way you make it sound is that Europe should be spouting out MVPs left and right. Why aren't they?

    They're playing football lol.

    For Europeans and South Americans this is the primary sport by far (almost like a religion), every other sport is secondary. The pay is far better as well, mainly due to its comparative popularity.
    NBA is big mainly in America but not in Europe, they have a decent following in Europe but no craze over it. There are no major leagues either like an NBA in Europe so it's a minor sport.
    Tennis, F1 and volleyball, hockey, ice hockey and rugby are more or just as popular in comparison.

    Yarmolenko,Konoplyanka and Tymoshchuk are all very good players.
    Right now they are in crisis,for years actually but i'm positive they will get better.
    Poland was bad and now is very good team,Iceland came out of no where and has over 300 000 people only.

    Well those are some unknowledgeable people misinforming you.


    These guy are 6'5 for example.

    The defenders and especially Goalkeepers are tall due to the positions they play in. Just search it up. Every goalkeeper is at least over 6 feet and should be agile with good reflexes.

    Even with that in mind, as I mentioned earlier there's no craze over basketball in Europe. A tall athlete would concentrate on football. If he doesn't make it then he won't be switching to basketball or any other sport for obvious reasons.

    The average height in "soccer" national teams is well above the average height in the country so we can move past that.

    Pretty sure that goes for the first divisions all over the world as well.

    There are far more than just Slavs in Russia, and ethnic divisions are still very significant in China.

    I get your point, but... This is purely a guess, but I wonder if he taking into account the demo’s of American style sports

    I’m fairness, as soon as Fedor fought in the US he got whooped a few times. So, ipso facto America is the GOAT!

    And that’s just science, so who am I to argue with it?

    This might be the dumbest thing Joe ever said, first there's SO few Olympic sports that are truly amateur athletes. Those Russian guys/girls downhill skiing/snowboarding are all on the professional World tour every year making more than average ufc fighters. Russian NHL players is 2nd or 3rd in volume.

    So Joe Rogan is wrong about something in his 3 hours long podcast, let's make a thread about it in the UFC forum!

    Some people here need to get a life.
