Two of the most famous lists in NBA basketball bounce into London’s 02 on Thursday evening looking to move a stair closer not only to silverware, but likewise to boost their global commercial appeal.

Boston Celtics are among the U’Ss greatest plays rights, and a few decades ago were the prototype of basketball.

In the late 1950 s and 1960 s they clinched an unparalleled scamper of eight straight-from-the-shoulder championships as they dominated the NBA as few societies have done in any sport.

The Philadelphia 76 ers have struggled in recent decades but were at one time another powerhouse, and are currently realise the fruition of a four time athletics and business rehabilitating programme.

These historic antagonists meet in the eighth regular-season NBA game to be held in London, at a time when the tournament is capturing new young devotees across Northern america, and is taking steps to capitalise on its sporting icons overseas.
