That's not true. Basketball is loved in Europe since thr 70's-80's and in Greece we are crazy about basketball since the 80's. It's not that the basketball is now becoming more international.It is that we are more hungry for better basketball and the teams in Europe have unlimited money to spend. When the star players will see that average players in Europe are earning more than them in the NBA they will start coming to the other side of the Altantic massively.
