Basketball was brought to Jamaica in the 1940s, and in its early days was dominated by the Chinese Jamaican population. The sport has never been tremendously popular in Jamaica, though this is certainly not for lack of talent. Jamaica has produced many international basketball stars, including the likes of NBA all-star Patrick Ewing.
