Basketball in Serbia is not something I was even aware existed. I don’t follow sports very closely — I’m too busy reading books about World War Two! One of my readers, James Treadway, sent me the following story he wrote for Salon on this topic. This piece fascinated me and if you have any interest it is well worth your time reading. Jim is a freelance writer and a thoughtful observer of culture. He has spent time living in the US, China, Germany, the United Kingdom, and most recently, Serbia.
