Are we talking about a level playing field here? It doesn't exist. Just watched looked like a African on the Japanese women's BBall team. How about Japan's football team, foreign blood? How about Korea's men's BB team, some African-American Korean decent. Level playing field? SK's baseball team is all pro, while all the others are amatuer. All countries find a way to maximize their chances. Global talent goes to the highest bidder.
