Mavs' Devin Harris thinks India is in Europe

7'2" NBA Prospect Satnam Singh: Guess My Shoe Size!

The Dallas Mavericks might not have pulled of a draft steal, but they did make history on Thursday night. The Mavs drafted a 7-foot-2 center Satnam Singh, making him the first Indian-born player to be selected in NBA history.

When asked what he thought about the pick, Mavericks guard Devin Harris put his foot in his mouth while trying to give a team-friendly answer.

That's right.... Devin Harris thinks India is in Europe. Mavericks owner Mark Cuban knows where India is, and he also knows how many people live in India.

"There's a billion new Mavs fans out there right now," Cuban said.

Cuban's comments could also point to this being more about obtaining a fan base to buy merchandise, following in the footsteps of the success the Houston Rockets had in China after drafting Yao Ming. Ming would be voted into All-Star games while missing considerable time because of injury because of his large fan base.

There still is a lot to prove for Satnam Singh, and Cuban's popularity gamble only pays off if the center can become a contributing member of the team.
