    Just when I thought Cricket was really going away in India. Good job to the India cricket team. I hope Cricket remains one of the big sports in India. We need to be like England, Australia who are all sporting nations.

    Just saw a video clip of the Squash Finals. That was so amazing. The crowd was high to. Indoor sports could be a big thing in India. That is why I think Basketball will do well to.[/quote]
    the reason for good crowd support is that all racquet games are already good in southern states as most of the top indian stars in these games are from this region only.but ya such tournaments can help increase in fan base as well
    and as far as basketball goes it has always been a good attraction mainly in colleges so a league of basketball could be a good hit and can help the game improve much better way in this part of the world[/quote]

    I agree on the basketball. Right now we have that 7 foot Indian Basketball player over at the IMG Academy and he is destined for the NBA over here. I hope he plays for my New York Knicks.

    Also an Indian Basketball League should be started with teams from Chennai, Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kerala, Shillong, Pune, Jaipur, Orissa, Lucknow, and Punjab. Sports Cities which can be open to an indoor sport like Basketball.[/quote]

    he's satnam singh. its not that he is certainly going to play NBA. but he's the best Indian prospect though his chances of making it to NBA are rare. all those reports on him in the newspapers are rather marketing gimmick by NBA to tap the Indian market. though he is good for his age group in asia level.
    as for a professional league ...yes it is very much required in India. though football maybe the 2nd sport after cricket but it is not spread throughout the country like basketball . if you see the Indian NT it will have players from many states. so incase of a pro league we can have clubs from all parts of India...same is not true for football.

    Also American Football is only an American sport. Even in America it is dieing. During the Super Bowl (The World Cup Final of American Shitball) no one cared for the game, everyone cared about the fact Madonna was singing with the unsexy 50 year old body. I swear she was so bad that every time she bent down I was shielding my eyes.

    We could have clubs from all over India in I-League, just the AIFF and some fans are too greedy that they just need like say 4 clubs from Kolkata or Goa in a 14 team league.

    Also Satnam will make the NBA. Its not all hype, well there is some hype but he is truly good. The only problem is education. I feel he will be the Yao Ming of India. Tall player who is foreign and makes international news for his country and has trouble speaking in a way (Satnam does, admit it). I think in 5 years we will see Satnam in the NBA but he will automatically dropped to the D-League (the second division of Basketball in America) so he can develop and when he is ready he will come back to the NBA and dominate.

    I agree. The ticket prices are too high. But the problem in hockey is that all the matches are held in one ground so anyway once u enter, you can watch all the matches. But the organizers should have known that most would be going for Indian matches only.

    Moreover, once u leave the stadium for say snacks, u have to buy new ticket to re-enter
