Default Outdoor Basketball Game

would seriously be dope.

NHL will do an outdoor hockey game for new year's day

NBA could do an outdoor game at a football stadium like the way MSU and Kentucky did it at Ford Field but in this case it should be done in an open stadium like LP Field(Titans stadium) or FedEX field in PG county/DC

it would be an interesting take on the game because everyone usually grew up playing basketball outside rather than in a gym and it would give the game a football type feel to it rather than being in a cramped arena but only do it once and if it sucks and players complain then dont do it again but if its a hit and generates more ticket sales then it could be a fun take on professional basketball

anybody else like to see an outdoor NBA game?

How would guys like Shaq/Big Ben fare from the free throw line with a 20-mph breeze in their face?

Most people I know are better shooters on an outside court than on a court in a gym

It would be good for the All Star Game or the Christmas Game(not in a place that is less than 70 degrees for Christmas)
Maybe its just me but I would go all the way out to Oakland to watch Los Angeles and Golden State ball outside at McAffee Stadium

ive always liked this idea. especially for the AllStar game or something.

with a regular season game you'd see guys like Kobe and Iverson leaving the game with huge scrapes from diving all over the court.

there'd probably be too many insurance problems with the players association/GMs. one small pebble on the concrete court making a star player slide and tear something. but who knows

still a good idea tho.

it would be good for a preseason game and that would be it. I think Mark Cuban has pondered the idea.

would the game have to be played on concrete? couldnt they take an indoor style floor and put it in an outside arena?

Talking Re: Outdoor Basketball Game

I think it would be hard because of the wind and the weather. The ground would be harder as well.

It would be wierd to watch t though
