    NBA ALL-STARS WHO PLAYED OVERSEAS

    • A lot of NBA All-Stars (52) played/are playing in international leagues in Europe, Asia and America, 14 countries overall.
    • These players could be split mainly in 3 groups: Young players out of the NCAA beginning their pro career in Europe, old stars extending their careers and definitely the international stars who arrived to the NBA in the last 2 decades.
    • Ex-Senator Bill Bradley probably has the most peculiar case. After graduating at Princeton in 1965 he went to Europe on a Rhodes Scholarship to study Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Oxford and also playing (and winning the European Championship) with Milano team.
    • 9 of these NBA All-Stars also played in other US leagues apart from the NBA.
    • List updated until Sep. 2016.
