Chris Bosh travels to India, mixes family vacation with NBA business

Aug 30, 2013, 9:56 AM EDT

The NBA wants to grow its brand in the world’s emerging markets — China gets the most publicity and the league has a foothold there (thanks to Yao Ming).

But another spot is India. For the past few years NBA players have gone there as ambassadors in the summer and this time it was Chris Bosh (he helped run some youth basketball clinics there). But he and his family mixed in a little traveling and getting to know the country with the business. Bosh is a thoughtful guy, a smart guy, someone who wants to be exposed to the cultures and differences around him, so good on him for getting out and seeing part of the country.

This video is about part of his trip.

    He looks like that Snake from the Jungle Book. He’d better be careful over there, someone might trap in a bottle and then he will only be able to come out, when that guy start’s playing his flute!!

    Maybe they could try to bring basketball to some of the countries around the big ones. Bangladesh is a country next to India that would benefit a lot from basketball. It is the 6th most densely populated country in the world, yet many have not heard of it. They love sports and basketball would bring them some way to spend their leisure time.
