The NBA has embraced an international flavor in recent years with over 100 active players coming from abroad to play basketball.

This influx of talent makes for a much more diverse league and promotes the league overseas, however it does provide a bit of a language barrier problem for some teams,

However, Washington Wizards big man, Marcin Gortat is helping out. Gortat has released a video through in which he teaches teammates, Al Harrington and Bradley Beal a few key phrases in Polish.

Gortat has played eight years in the NBA and is the only active Polish player in the league, however there might now be a number of players in Washington who can converse in Gortat's mother tongue.
