NBA Commissioner David Stern is always pushing product. There’s a new arena being built in Shanghai called the Mercedes-Benz Arena, according to the Los Angeles Times. NBA International President Heidi Ueberroth says:
Preseason NBA games and other basketball events such as WNBA games will be held at the Mercedes center, Ueberroth said. “This is absolutely an NBA-level arena.”
My question: can the WNBA afford the cost of transport, or will those games be played during the WNBA regular season?
