Australia is known internationally as a sporting country. We produce stars that perform on the world stage, basketball included, and many are household names around the world. The NBA is undoubtedly going from strength to strength in Australia, but we are still constantly overlooked when it comes to bringing an NBA game to our shores. England, China, Germany, Italy, and Russia, just to name a few, have all had NBA teams compete in their country. Earlier this month, the NBA held an exhibition game in South Africa featuring Team World vs. Team Africa. The game was filled with NBA stars, including Luol Deng, Chris Paul, Kenneth Faried and the Gasol brothers.
