"It is true, European basketball is interesting."
Translation:È vero, la pallacanestro europea è interessante.
In Italy they use the word 'basket' alot for basketball as well as pallacanestro. I don't know if this is 'proper' language or a bastardization, but it ought to be accepted.
i agree. i live in Italy and basket is a very common term - more common that palacanestro.
