1. If you guessed (C), Puerto Rico, you were right! Tucker said it would get so wild there that the team needed to be ushered around by security guards everywhere. What must it be like for J-Lo there?

2. If you guessed (D), Italy you are correct! With the amount of players that move in and out of the NBA from that league, Italy is always one of the toughest places to play in the world.

3. If you guessed, (B), you know your geography! Most teams in Greece are located in either Athens or Thessaloniki.

4. If you guessed, (D), the Ukraine, you must have either played there or listened to my interview. One would think that this Eastern European country would be among the least fun places to play because of its frigid climate, but Tucker was animate about the Ukraine being a ball. The Suns forward said, “There aren’t many rules in life there. You can do what you want to do if you are a good basketball player and you can make your own road.” Who knew?

5. Tucker said, (A), Israel, was the most Americanized country he played in, which was his reason for saying he was comfortable there. Besides having rabid basketball fans, Tucker said that Israel was also the best country abroad for living that’s not located in Europe.

6. If you said, (D), Germany, you were some sort of psychic. It wasn’t that Tucker was a huge fan of bratwursts or regular German cuisine, it was that Germany has a plethora of American army bases with a variety of American food available. For day-to-day eating, Germany was the easiest spot for Tucker to feel like he was back in the United States.
