When in Rome

I'm always looking for basketball vocabulary, for two reasons.

1) It might make reading webpages in other languages easier, and
2) I might know what to shout if I ever find myself watching a foreign game.

Here is a list of Spanish basketball technical terms.
Here is another list in French.

I haven't found any Polish, Turkish or Chinese terms, yet. However, the fact that the phrase "pick and roll" is just the same in Spanish (it should be at least 'pick y roll') as it is in English gives me hope.
