Have you guys realize how jealous we are in China about u can go and see a real game on weekend
I am an ordinary basketball fan in China, and every time I saw someone post a video in the arena with thousands of people sceaming I feel jealous. My biggest dream is that one day I can save enough money so that I can afford the trip to America for several games. Even tho I fail to accomplish that I will always dream on, because people gonna have faith and mine is go and see LeBron himself even for just one time.

Guys, I'm from Sweden and our basketball culture is crap. It is hard to find someone who knows anything bout the NBA at all. The biggest basketball star we've ever had is Jerebko.. And the biggest basketball event we've had is probably Scottie Pippen signing like a 2-game contract with a Swedish basketball team.

Yeah as a european, im so jelaous that you can just come home after work and put on a game on the TV. We really have to plan when we can watch a game. And those early sunday games is GOLD for us.

Yeah its brutal. A nice routine on the weekends is to drink so you can stay awake, and when the second half starts you are drunk as shit screaming on the TV.

Having lived in Canada before moving to the Middle East, I can tell you the number one thing I miss is going home from work, opening a beer and watching a game relaxed on the couch. Now the only live games I can catch are Sunday games.

I remember the days long before nbastreams existed where my only option to watch out of market NBA games was to stream low quality, super pixelated Chinese streams. You had to really know your players cause the only thing you could tell was their skin color, jersey color, and general height.

Speak for yourself brother. I grew up on ramen noodles and Vienna sausage so I appreciate every single time I pay for a $13 hotdog at a Wizards game just to watch them be just good enough to not be considered bad. Haha

im from the Dominican Republic and that is my dream as well. I want to be a season ticket holder for any team, i do not care if it is the kings or the nets, i just want to go to every single game.
I have been to the states and have watched 4 NBA Games in total:
1st Game - 12/14/2004 - Indiana Pacers Vs Boston Celtics. I had an amazing experience for my first NBA game. i was watching Jermaine O´neal and Stephen Jackson practicing and when Stephen went to the tunnel we spoke for about 5 minutes and he was so nice to me. He played in the Dominican Republic for a brief time and he averaged 40+ points per game over here. The celtics won that game and Fred Jones did an amazing dunk that night on Raef Lafrentz.
2nd Game - 05/12/2011 - Chicago Bulls vs Atlanta Hawks. Game 6 of the Eastern conference Semi Finals. Josh Smith had a Crazy Alley oop, Boozer destroyed Horford and i saw MVP D-Rose. it was a Blowout but i saw 2 great teams for the first time. Fun Fact: that same day i was walking in downtown Atlanta and saw David Aldridge crossing the street, we shook hands and we spoke for a brief moment.
3rd Game - 11/25/2015 - New York Knicks vs Orlando Magic. 2 really bad teams, but i was happy to see Carmelo and Porzingis. Porzingis block on Oladipo was amazing and the Magic won that game from the start.
4th Game - 01/15/2018 - Golden State Warriors vs Cleveland Cavaliers. We drove 5+ hours in a snow storm just to see this game from rochester NYC to Cleveland, i was so hyped for this game. I saw many Hall of Famers in D-wade, Lebron, Curry, Durant, etc. Lebron had a great game but they GSW has way to much firepower. My favorite NBA player is Kevin Durant and he had a monster dunk on Lebron James, i almost left the building when i saw this. Curry even dunked on that game. it was an amazing experience that i cannot describe with words. This is one of the best memories of my life.
All of this were gifts from my family that live in the united states, and i am really thankful to all of them for this amazing gifts. i have so many memories i can share just because of this.

[译注1]此条是美国网友用中文写的，直译Nephew。这个梗的来源是某位黑人网友在Facebook上贴了一些比较不堪入目的内容，他的舅舅看到了，评论道“Delete this, nephew!”（大外甥，赶紧删了！）。现在Nephew这个词有很多指代意思，多用来形容灌水的网友。

CBA is pretty good for killing time on the weekends man. Tickets are cheap, you get Free AC plus I'll tell you from experience, watching Jimmer or Marshon Brooks style on people is almost as good as attending a Raptors game when Lebron is in town.

raptors fans still not safe somehow... just wondering, I've been to a few nba games, how would they compare to cba games?

The atmosphere is pretty good but it depends on where you go I guess. I live in Shenzhen which has an arena that was built "like NBA scale" and sits about 18k, I've never seen it sell out a bball game but there are enough fans to give a solid experience. Other teams have older facilities and much smaller arenas so I can't speak for those. The level of play is obviously not very high but as I said, almost every team has one foreign superstar which makes it interesting

Fun story about Chinese hoops fans in the US.
A friend of mine went to a Pelicans game about 2 years back and was sitting in the row behind a bunch of Chinese nationals that were in town for a convention or something. He noticed a few of them were checking their phones constantly in between action, looking at how their favorite team(s)/player(s) were doing across the league. They were super pumped to be at a live NBA game.
Anywho, at one of the game breaks, out comes the Pelican mascot with the t-shirt cannon and starts shooting. My buddy (who is not that tall), gets a shirt shot at him and he reaches up and snags it out the air, arm fully stretched out, single handed.
The guys in front of him were awestruck, and were clapping and cheering for him so he decided "What the hell" and tossed the shirt to one of the guys. They went ballistic and kept thanking him over and over again.
TL;DR: Friend sat behind some Chinese dudes at a Pels game, noticed they were big hoops fans, caught a shirt, gave it to them, they were insanely grateful.
