NBA announces they are streaming Warriors-Kings tomorrow on Facebook Live to audiences in India
The NBA picked an excellent game to showcase to India the wonders of the NBA. Golden State is an absolute power house of a basketball team with shooters galore. Pinning the against a division rival with an enigmatic superstar in DeMarcus Cousins of the Kings makes a ton of sense.
While the NBA is probably the showcasing this game because Kings owner Vivek Ranadive was born in India, it will be on display Monday morning in India. This game could be off the hook, so nothing could be getting done in India on Monday morning.
Why work when you can watch Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, or Klay Thompson rain three-pointers? Could Cousins and Warriors power forward Draymond Green get up in each others’ grills? This is a solid divisional rivalry game that could very well be the No. 1 vs. No. 8 matchup in the 2017 Western Conference Playoffs.
By having this game streaming on Facebook Live, this is a tremendously proactive move for the NBA, the Kings organization, and the Warriors organization. The NBA is usually progressive. Sacramento does a great job of generating revenue in a small market. Golden State is in the forward-thinking Bay Area. Why not have all Kings vs. Warriors games streaming for India to enjoy? Pretty cool idea honestly.
