    basketball is about to pass cricket, cricket is only up there because it's indias national sport
    All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

    I wish. Soccer is such a ****** sport. Chuck Klosterman was right when he called it an outcast sport. It's the only big sport where you can't fail too hard, where games are expected to tie, and fans cheer hard for missed shots.

    However its about 4 years later, and I am curious about basektball from an international perspective. Do you think basketball is the future sport of the world?

    Will markets in the EU, China, India, North and South America, and Northern Africa be much more attracted to this sport in the future?

    Or will soccer/rugby always be the focal sports of our generation in this world?

    Will the NBA ever spread further into Canada (like Vancouver or Calgary or Montreal ) or perhaps even into Europe or Mexico City ?

    Will future Olympic basketball be much much more competitive with emerging national teams in China and in Europe?

    Let's discuss.

    Soccer and Baseball I think is more popular globally then basketball.

    But I know Kobe and Rose is really big in the biggest country in the world though.

    basketball has too many variables, rules and restricitions to be played worldwide...you cant just starting playing basketball on a street, you need a hoop.

    Soccer on the other hand can be played with just a ball anytime anywhere. Go to any city in the world and drop a soccer ball down, guarantee people start gathering around

    Personally, I would much rather have the Sacramento Kings and the Charlotte Bobcats in Montreal and Vancouver then where they are now.

    Love playing trash can soccer. Best part is no one has to be the goalie.

    On a side note when I was watching the olympics it said that every town in China was required to have a basketball court.

    Yeah... Soccer is still #1 in just about every single European country though, if not them all.

    No. Soccer.

    I love playing all sports made the basketball, football, and soccer team. Soccer is a beautiful game and I've always thought that because I play soccer so well I translated it to other sports because of footwork.

    I love bball but it's never passing Soccer it can however do something else and solidify itself as the second sport across the world globe.

    As much as I like having a team in Charlotte, I think the NBA would be better served if they could expand to Vancouver and Montreal. Would be interesting to see if a team can succeed in Vancouver now that the Supersonics are gone. For better or worse the Bobcats will be in Charlotte until 2030 unless they decide to pay a $150M exit fee to get out of their lease
