    It seems to me that a disproportionately large number of Argentinian players in the league have long hair.

    1. Herrmann
    2. Scola
    3. Varejao
    4. Delfino (Has had long hair while with the Pistons)

    I can't think of any others at this time.

    It's a sign of virility, and an errant jumpshot.

    Absolutely correct. What women could find from hairless argentinians?

    Everybody knows that hair grows faster south of the equator.

    Varejao is Brazilian. Here are the 6 Argentinians in the NBA this season. Draw your own conclusions.

    Brazilian or Argentinian they are both the same to me.

    Now if they are Venezuelan that is a different breed of baller, most likely baseball and a good chance playing in the Tigers organization.

    Well, that's compelling.

    They do speak a different language.

    My point was that they are the same compared to Venezuelans.

    Argentinians and Brazilians both have excellent basketball players but no baseball players.

    Venezuelans are different. They have great baseball players, the best of whom are with the Tigers, and no? NBA players.

    If you find that compelling, so be it.
