This is the very first time in the history of National Basketball Association (NBA) that two teams, Sacramento Kings and Indiana Pacers, played two preseason games in India on October 4 and 5 at NSCI Dome in Mumbai.

Ahead of these games, Gaurav Kalra, Group Editor (Sports) of Network18 caught up with Adam Silver, NBA Commissioner at the NBA India Games 2019.

“The state of basketball is fantastic and with the programme, we began slightly before I became commissioner, we created with Reliance Foundation a Junior MBA programme. Our original expectation was to reach 3 million young people and we reached 10 million people in 13,000 schools. So we have made real progress there,” Silver said.
