NBA prepares to make Europe debut

Basketball history set to take place with first ever NBA game to be staged in Europe.

    The North American NBA (National Basketball Association) is to hold its first regular season game in Europe, with the New Jersey Nets taking on the Toronto Raptors in London on Friday.

    But the push to Europe, and the NBA's drive to become a truly international league, has not been without difficulties.
