This is the end of the third and final chapter, dedicated to the history of basketball without the NBA professionals. It was a dream I had for a long time, but I had never managed to complete it. I am convinced that you will also appreciate it. The basketball is about to enter another dimension of its long path, with the world championships in China next year, and with the Olympic tournament that returns to Tokyo after 56 years. After all, it is a parable that comes to an end in Asia, where the first international championship took place in Manila from 1913. Furthermore, it is as if the times when basketball was being managed by different organizations returned, and today we have at least four at a high level, with USAB, NCAA, FIBA, and EuroLeague.
I have put together the best for every four years, but I leave the judgment to you based on your memories or your convictions.
