While they may be few and far between, Latinos are a ever growing force in the NBA.
From the league's oldest ever rookie to the youngest player to have ever played in Spain's professional circuit, the stand out Latino NBA athletes are anything but boring.
Prominent Latinos in the league like Carmelo Anthony and the Gasol brothers will continue to exert influence.
Along with a strong Spanish presence, including Serge Ibaka and Ricky Rubio, the NBA will also be represented by Argentine Luis Scola and Dominicans Charlie Villanueva and Al Horford.
As the 2012-2013 season kicks into high gear, fans will be pleasantly surprised to see Latinos increasing their force in the sport.
