The Commish continues his plot of total world domination, and his latest venture could see NBA teams venturing to Brazil for preseason games. From Reuters: “The NBA hopes to play some pre-season games in Brazil by 2014 as the league aims to build its presence outside of the United States, commissioner David Stern said on Wednesday. ‘Likely prior to the (2014) World Cup,’ Stern told reporters in Paris according to a transcript provided by the NBA. ‘Or my backup position is prior to the (2016 Rio de Janeiro Games).’ Stern, in Paris for a pre-season game between the New York Knicks and Minnesota Timberwolves, also said the NBA would soon open an office in Brazil.”
