    Why are nets playing Thunder in Mexico City?

    Any reason? What a terrible matchup to promote.

    Trump made them leave. Nets were in the country illegally.

    Wasn't there a game there last year or 2 years ago that they had to cancel because all the lights went out a little before tipoff and they couldn't get them back on? F'ing 3rd World countries

    Mexicans don't care about basketball. They are horrible at it and less athletic than blacks and whites

    Future relocation spot for the Thunder in 15-20 years after they wind up in the basement of the league in next few years and change their name to the Mexico City Matadors. You'll be able to scoop up floor seats for 1000 pesos and come away with one of these stylin sombreros on hat night.

    Yeah I'm sure it was Mexico's fault. Why were the Bruins in China?

    Leagues , NFL , NBA see the writing on the wall , not the Trump Wall .
    If they don't start looking elsewhere , profit margins will eventually go to shit .
    I use to constantly watch sports , regardless what league .
    Now , not so much , it's nothing to do with politics, it's these leagues has become trash , the product on the field / court , it's pretty pathetic IMO .
    CBB , very seldom catch myself watching it as well . Rule changes over the past 3 years , ruining the sport due to wanting more possessions, higher scoring .
    But maybe it's me , it's not worth watching even if money is on the line.
