Could an NBA franchise survive in London?

Last night, the O2 played host to NBA teams New York Knicks and Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks triumphed, winning 95 points to 79. 

The loss extends the New York side’s losing streak to record 16 games in a row.

The game was sold-out and received considerable press coverage and began trending on Twitter and there have been suggestions London could see a permanent NBA franchise in the future. 

Flinder Boyd, former basketball professional and commentator, joined Wake Up London to discuss the possibility of this. 

Boyd, who was at the game last night, also told London Live what they atmosphere was like in the UK and why London welcomes American sports teams so heartily.
