Thanks for sharing. Korea's philosophy here is ... interesting. ;D

As a fellow Korean-American, it actually makes me laugh a little considering the fact Koreans are so prideful. To see someone else dominating basketball in their own homeland must be very frustrating... Speaking of Korean basketball players, I haven't heard this name in forever...

Itís worth noting that the ban doesnít apply to Korean-born players, so 7-foot-3 Ha Seung-jin gets a pass. Each team can have two foreign players, one of whom canít be taller than 6-6, the other, no taller than 6 feet.

What a shame lol.

Is the glass half-full or half-empty?
It's based on your perspective, quite simply

Well, that's not what really happened ... but "Korea imposes height restrictions on foreign-born basketball players" doesn't sound nearly as viral, I guess.

Unless they imposed the height restriction because this kid was dominating....
