Across The Pondcast 1: The NBA in London

For the first edition of Elephant Sport’s Across The Pondcast, Stephen Kilbey and Chris Monti discuss the state of the NBA games being played in the UK each year, and what the league needs to do to improve upon its investment overseas.

Since 2007 the NBA has been bringing teams to the O2 Arena to play both pre-season and regular season games in front of a portion of the league’s international fanbase. But whether or not much progress has been made in the nine years is up for debate.
