I would say Randy Culpepper. He consistently has a job. I remember watching highlights from him (in Ukraine) I think. The crowd loved him. They were going nuts over his dunks and three-point shooting.

Omar was European champ and player of the year at least 1 time if I remember correctly. John Bomba also has a long successful career.

BTW, as state above, RC was a fan favorite overseas and financially he made a tidy profit.

George Banks played something like 15 seasons in Hungary, Venezuela, Australia, Cyprus, Israel and Turkey

Antoine Gillespie played around 15 seasons in Venezuela, Israel Spain, Greece and Switzerland.

Derrick Caracter was with a Brazilian team that won the FIBA International cup in 2014.

Sharif Fajardo was on the 2004 Puerto Rican team that beat the US in the Athens Olympics

I'm glad DC got some nice hardware to go along with his up and down baller career. A FIBA crown is not a NBA crown but pretty damn close.

Who you think was the best Puerto Rican??

I wish Utep would start up recruiting Latin America again like Billy Gillespie did.

I know Julyan Stone and Vince Hunter are still playing. Joe Devance played in the Phillipines and did very well. He was like a celebrity there.

Looking at just stats, I would say RC3 or Moultrie have done best. It's hard to gauge based on the level of competition, though. Jason Williams also put up some pretty good numbers.

Eddie Rivera was Puerto Rican. Hard to say who was better. I know who was on the better team, but both were really good, I thought.
