This is easy. Ridnour, Collison, Kaman, Brad Miller, David Lee, Hinrich, Korver...

The dominating one is harder. In fact, I can't think of a single one.

The last 3 are much better than the first 3. I would a add Morrison, and Brent Barry to that list.

Actually, I'm going to make a case for Nash.

Yes, I know he was born in Canada, lives in Canada, and remains a Candian citizen.

BUT, he learned the game in the US, which is (I think) the part that is in question. Unlike other non-American ballers, like Dirk, Gasol, Manu, or Yao, Nash played college ball, and playing it in the US, under US coaches. Right here in the Bay, at Santa Clara.

So, if the arguement is that the US cannot produce good/great white basketball players, then Nash, despite his citizenship, is the key counterpoint.

If the arguement is that white American men cannot, for whatever reason, play the game at the super elevated level, then, at least for this era, we have to agree.

Nothing against your point about Nash, drazz... but, as an interesting tidbit, he was born in South Africa.

Bah, non-Euro Euros are all the same. South Africa, Canada, Australia, whatever.
