For some countries, providing the NBA with a talent pool of athletes is extremely easy.

Barring the US, places such as Canada, France and Serbia have given the NBA the most players out of any countries on Earth.

On the flip side though, it can be very difficult for some nations to do the same, either due to genetics, resources, or just interest levels in the sport.

Some countries, especially in Asia, are just too short to play in the NBA, and there are countless other places where basketball isn't as popular as other sports in the area.

One of those countries, however, is on the rise, and is currently in it's prime regarding NBA talent.
