Default Raptors to play in London England

Report: LeBron visits Cavs Dec. 2; Raptors to play in London

Quote:
The New York Daily News says that the Raptors will play two games against the New jersey Nets in London, England on March 4 and 5.
Some douchebag will say something like "no one goes to Raptor games, so they're putting them in England".

cool.
but strange... usually the league will put its younger, high powered-offenses to showcase... and make sure the games wont be boring.
i wonder why they chose Toronto?

Coz both games are regular season games. Phrokov want to create a international brand with the Nets, and the Raps have the most european players on their roster. Perfect teams for such a test.

The in-season Euro trip is definitely strange. They shouldn't be in the regular season imo since it takes some time to adjust to international flight and time change.

I like it!

Should be a great experience for all the young cats involved, playing a big game in the O2 in London.

That game will get a ton of coverage everywhere, hopefully our boys will use that as a motivator.

Why don't they just go to England for the NBA Euro Live thing instead of halfway through the fricken season?

the organization on the baskeball floor has put a failed product over and over on the floor

but when it comes to brand building you have to give this organization a A+

its got tons of international fans, every year there is a new guy from a different country, last year was Turk, and now Barbosa from brazil, we got anderson from Australia

raptors only been around for 15 years but they probably have more fans than at least 20 teams in the league, personally I feel like there in the top 5 when in come to the world but obviously I have no stats to back this up
