I just realised the Raptors game I saw go into overtime yesterday during happy hour was live from London. I thought it was a bit early for them to play as I live down the street from the Air Canada Centre, but it said O2 so I thought that was Orlando. But wait, O2 is in the States now?
Anyway, interesting they picked these two franchises. What's the draw outside of North America? Although I reckon the famous teams (Knicks, Lakers, etc) wouldn't showcase much NBA talent.
On the flipside, they said perhaps Dwayne Casey gets to coach the all star team. At least that's what the Toronto papers say. Adverts are going up all over the place about the stars coming for the all star game and I frankly don't even know most of them - except the Raptors two.
