London Hosts The NBA Tomorrow (Knicks V. Pistons)

The NBA returns to the UK as the New York Knicks and Detroit Pistons battle it out at London’s O2 Arena! It’s the third regular season game trip the NBA has made to the country and it has always been a raging success. The Knicks are taking the East by storm, while the Pistons are still struggling to find some sort of relevance throughout a rebuilding period, but nonetheless it should go a long way in helping to showcase the game to fans in the UK. It’s a great expansion idea from the NBA’s marketing team who no doubt have high hopes that they can grow the game outside of North America.  Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler will return to the city where just months ago they claimed the gold medal and the 2012 London Olympics, and the Knicks will also welcome guard Iman  Shumpert back into the lineup. With no tickets left, the average asking price for the event online is a whopping 335.23 pounds! That’s about $508 Australian.

The game will be available for all NBA TV League Pass Subscribers live at 7AM Friday morning (AUS)

Now, when’s the NBA coming to Sydney?
