Re: What's the shopping like in Kuala Lumpur? Especially Basketball Stores
KL is a big city, and the infrastructure is more modern than the US in the main downtown tourist areas.
Fakes are harder to come by, it isn't China, though you will find fake soccer jerseys in night markets and a lot of places, in fact if you like soccer, buy the fake jerseys, they usually go for like $10.
As for hoops, it isn't big there, there are sports stores in the big malls, but it is more soccer and shit like that, as the EPL etc. are massively popular, the NBA, meh, not so much. You will find Nike counters in department stores, and they will have a bit of hoop stuff there but its mostly for the hip hop crowd, and you'll pay top dollar.
Despite what Balla Status said, people won't follow you, and while Malaysia is a Muslim country it is a much friendlier, softer less hardcore version of the religion than in the Middle East.
