NBA Jumps on the Outdoor Game Bandwagon

The Phoenix Suns and Denver Nuggets are going to play a preseason game outside next year, at a tennis venue in Indian Wells, CA. The only other time the Association has played outside was back in 1972, with two games in Puerto Rico. The October 11th game will be shown on TNT, and tickets for the 16,100 seat arena will range from $10 to $100.

This should be a bit easier to carry out logistically speaking, as they don’t have to worry about freezing anything. I hope it’s played in the evening, though, Shaq just might collapse on the court if it’s too hot. Wait, he doesn’t run that hard anyway. Never mind.
