There was a short spell where it got really big. One of the terrestrial TV channels was screening regular NBA highlights programmes and one live game a week, then all of the play off finals games live, and during that time kids were getting into basketball a lot.

Adidas also did a big campaign where they installed thousands of permanent outdoor courts all over the country. So the kids were for a time able to watch the real deal on TV easily, and had good courts in their neighbourhood to play on.

The sports clothing stores were stocking most of the NBA jerseys too.

The courts are all still there, there's one 5 minutes from my house, for instance, but ever since that TV channel stopped screening the NBA, kids have forgotten it again.

Yes, but are you a 9ers fan?

I'm from the London area, but I don't support Arsenal, Tottenham, West Ham, Charlton, Chelsea, Crystal Palace etc. in anything. I don't care who they're playing.

What he's saying is, if you were a Philadelphia Eagles fan and the Redskins went to England to play a UK all star American football team and got beat, you as an Eagles fan wouldn't give a shit, because you hate the Redskins.

Precisely, although hate's a bit strong

I don't hate any other teams. I just don't care about them.

So, like everything else good in the world, America fags it up.





FYI, Rugby preceded "football".
