The Cricket boys might want a word with you.

On the whole planet though? It's not really hot like that outside of Anglo Europe,parts of Asia(Oceania included) and the West Indies.

Yeah cricket is huge.

Pretty much wherever English is spoken (outside of America) cricket is present.

Then you look a countries like India with it's giant population, it's a national pastime.

You can start by apologizing to me when I told you last month that Mou and Fabregas would be able to rip Pedro from United's hands? Remember that exchange of pics? laugh.gif

I love MLB baseball and used to love the NBA, but for me, the "World Champions" title needs to involve a competition where teams from different nations/countries are represented.  I'd love nothing more than my Mariners to be "World Series Champions", but as far as I'm concerned, Team Dominican Republic are the current WBC world champions. 

 

FIBA 2014 & 2010 Team USA - World Champions

FIBA 2006 Team Spain - World Champions

 

Olympic Games 2012 Team USA - Olympic Champions

 

2014/15 Golden State Warriors - NBA Champions

Guess there isn't much other bashing they can do since their direct rivals are snagging up all their targets laugh.gif

But seriously people really get salty about the name of the World Series, or the Warriors being called World Champs? Bruh you could take every best player not in the NBA, and put them on the same team, and the Warriors would demolish them, let alone any single club team laugh.gif don't get the salt.

And then saying because the world cares too much about cricket? Bruh show me the Lebrons, Westbrooks, JJ Watt equivalents, etc that are too busy playing these other worldly sports in other countries.

We breed the illest athletes of any country in the world and its not even a question. USA! 🇺🇸 USA! 🇺🇸

I told you, Mou and Cesc had the power. Shouldn't have been that surprised today when you read Pedro was moving there.

Funny enough,Chelsea were the first team with interest mentioned when news broke that Pedro wanted out iirc. Along with the Gooners before MU and MC came into the picture.

european countries show a lot of love towards basketball, even women.

 

same goes for Asian countries too

The last I checked, I think Lindegaard was set for a loan-spell?  West Ham I think it was...?

That's why for me NBA>NFL. Didn't grow up in an NFL town and I refuse to root for anything Seattle even if they are in the PNW. NBA could be as big as soccer in 20ish years. Imagine a Champions League between the US and Spain or something pimp.gif

On a very quick google: http://www.top10zen.com/most-popular-sports-1584?page=5

http://www.readingtree.org/top-10-most-popular-sports-in-the-world/

http://www.economist.com/blogs/gametheory/2011/09/ranking-sports%E2%80%99-popularity

But now this question is actually going to make me want to do some reading. It's always a given footy is #1, but I've never asked what's #2. I'll be interested to find a real concrete answer...

Ask any person anywhere on Earth who Michael Jordan is and you'll most likely get an answer almost instantly,ask them who Sachin Tendulkar is and you might need to wait a little longer laugh.gif

laugh.gif while I get your point, I think Michael Jordan transcends basketball, and is basically a world/pop icon. People who don't follow the sport will know his name. You could find places where no one watches or plays basketball, and they'll know Jordan's name from pop culture.

Btw, something interesting, Multichoice (Africa's largest satellite tv provider) only recently started covering NBA games and broadcasting across the continent.

I find it hilarious that Manchester couldn't sign Pedro after trying to get him for weeks LMAO.

It makes it hilarious that some Manchester United fans seriously believe they're Real Madrid or something and sign any player they want. Haha wow.


Rugby> basketball
