  • NBA India Games: Kings owner Vivek Ranadive hopeful of Indians in NBA

    first_img“I’m happy to be back in the city of my forefathers. These games are a first step in a long journey. I fully expect these games will continue and hopefully, multiple players will come out of India and play in the NBA. And hopefully, we will have more arenas to play these games,” Ranadive told reporters ahead of the matches. “I believe basketball will be the second-most popular sport in this country. Of course, cricket is the national pass time and it’ll be hard to replace in the land of (Sachin) Tendulkar and (Mansoor Ali Khan) Pataudi but basketball and India are meant to be together. This is a game that can be played indoors and outdoors, by boys and girls, in cities and villages and by the rich and poor,” explained the 61-year-old. Written By Vivek Ranadive acknowledges his roots whenever someone mentions Mumbai. He may have left the city 40 years ago, but Ranadive still calls himself a true Mumbaikar. After all, the American multimillionaire who founded TIBCO – a real-time computing company – and former co-owner and vice-chairman at Golden State Warriors, is back in Mumbai for the NBA India Games as his Sacramento Kings team will square off against the Indiana Pacers on October 4 and 5.
