The NBA’s Outdoor Game Was Not A Success

Posted by Mike on October 13, 2008

In taking a page from the NHL, the NBA tried its hand at playing an outdoor game. The NBA was trying to bring the game back to its roots, the playground, outside, were everybody first started playing round-ball. But the game was a disaster to say the least. Due to the wind which was upwards of 15mph, and very cold conditions the game was said to be “ugly to watch”. The Phoenix Suns and the Denver Nuggets were the two unlikely teams who were forced to play in the NBA’s new marketing idea. The two teams missed 24 of 27 three-point attempts, which just maybe a record, and the teams combined to score 149 total points. What did the Shaq think about these conditions “it was colder than a motherf-cker out there.” Looks like this was another swing and miss for the NBA.
