Argentina ranked as fourth best basketball league

MGWith rumors spreading of NBA players going to play overseas if the NBA lockout extends into the season, Dime Magazine has compiled a list of the top five basketball leagues players should look into.

Argentina’s Liga Nacional de Basquet was ranked as the fourth best league, that league featured a current and former San Antonio Spurs players- Manu Ginobili and Fabricio Oberto.

4. Liga Nacional de Básquet, Argentina
Arguably the second best pro basketball league in the Americas, Argentina’s Liga Nacional de Básquet packs plenty of talent. Just ask Manu Ginobili, Fabricio Oberto, Luis Scola, or Carlos Delfino who all started their careers in the 16-team league. Argentina proved it produces some talented ballers at the 2004 Olympics where it grabbed a gold medal. Word on the street is that Argentina isn’t such a shabby place to live either.

If they are able to get their insurance issue resolved, you can catch the four Argentinians in the pre-Olympic qualifier in Mar del Plata, Argentina next month.
