Default Re: NBA No Longer Interested In European Expansion

A more feasible idea would be to let a rich European buy a team, relocate it to a city with an area with a lot of European people living there and then play a lot of games in Europe. Call it the "city name" Euros and have them play in Spain when they play the Lakers, Grizzlies, and the Timberwolves (Gasols & Rubio), in Germany when they play the Mavs, in Turkey when Kanter and Hedo`s teams visit and so on. This way you would get to keep all teams in North America while at the same time expanding the fan-base in Europe.

Good, I didn't want the NBA to expand into Europe anyway.

I think the idea was that if the NBA was going to expand into Europe, it would be by creating an entirely separate league. You would need to have 8 teams probably, and they would all just play each other, perhaps making one long trip to the States each season.



Europe already has its own thing going on though, with lots of leagues. An "NBA Europe" league, or whatever they would call it, would fail miserably.

I don't see how you could interpret from Stern's words that he has "abandoned" the concept. He's saying they're not there yet.
