THE NBA IN USA

Fiona Duncan

Fiona Duncan

Heading to USA this season? Want to make it the most authentic and action-packed adventure yet? Well there is nothing more USA than riding the sub to the slam-dunk central, fitting on yourself a foam finger, grabbing yourself a hot-dawg while you watch one of ‘Mericas most loved, star-studded spectacles – the NBA!

Go and watch the big boys (literally they are some of the tallest people you’ve ever seen) play in better than picture-perfect view at one of the National Basketball Association games. 

This is sure one experience you won’t forget! Lose your voice amongst the screams of hundreds of Americans, as you feel the adrenaline pump inside as you watch the Kings of the game like LeBron James, Stephen Curry or Kevin Durant dunk, double and dribble around the court. 

What’s even better than that? Well over the Christmas period the game is literally lifted as NYC and LA hold the biggest and best games of the year. LA will continue to hold the iconic event on Jesus’ birthday when the LA Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers take the court to shoot some hoops. Whereas in NYC New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets will be battling it out on Boxing Day. 

The NBA season blew off in October and runs until the 10th April so you’ve got plenty of time to grab your tickets (and foam hand). For the greatest games then you’ll have to see the hottest teams in the headlights; New Orleans Pelicans, LA Lakers, Milqakee Bucks, Boston Celtics. Whereas those that are less ‘on-the-ball’ would be the Golden State Warriors,  Memphis Grizzlies and Atlanta Hawks. 

If you’re there to spur-on and see the Aussie gems, then look out for Philledeplhpia 76ers (Ben Simmons), Utah Jazz ( Joe Ingles and Dante Exum), Cleveland Cavs ( Matthew Dellavedova) and San Antonio Spurs (Patty Mills). Because no matter where you are in the world, we gotta big up the nation. But whatever match you make it to, they will all give you a memorable experience.
