The NBA recently held its second NBA Africa Game, played in Johannesburg, South Africa. Commissioner Adam Silver has made global engagement a priority with sponsored events all around the globe.

Players are attempting to build their brands abroad, with Kevin Durant doing a tour in India and Stephen Curry in China. One of the NBA Africa game players, Charlotte’s Nicolas Batum (France) posted a test for his Twitter followers and NBA fans world wide :

“I’m testing your NBA knowledge: Try to build an NBA line up and a 2nd unit with 10 NBA Players but from 10 différents nationalities! 🏀🌍
