There are many sports that are enjoyed globally but are not actively played in every country, let’s take a look at cricket, which is a game that is enjoyed in many regions, including Asia and Europe. But it is not played in North American countries! Similarly, football is enjoyed all over the world, yet many countries don’t have national football teams.

With that being said, Australian basketball fans are ready to witness the first NBA basketball School in Australia.
