The Brits Make Up Lies About the NBA

As a means to showcase the game to a worldwide audience, the Chicago Bulls squared off against the Utah Jazz in an exhibition game in London. For some reason the NBA didn’t seem to arrange for announcers who knew anything about the sport or its history.

For instance, the announcers insist (41 seconds in) that Larry Bird was only 5′ 11″, because why let facts, like how he was 6′ 9″ interfere with a stupid point? Or when they proclaim Jack Nicholson as a bandwagon fan (2:50), because apparently going to the games for about 40 years isn’t enough.

I guess because Britain is so old that’s simply not enough. Who hired these slags in the first place?
