This is definitely good news for the Mexican fans, as some of the best players in the NBA today will be travelling to their country, and will see action in front of them.
Russell Westbrook and Paul George are undoubtedly the biggest names scheduled to play in Mexico by then, and will bring a lot of excitement to the anticipated sold out crowd. The Heat game also has the makings of becoming a highly-entertaining matchup, as their fast-pace style of play could produce a lot of highlight reel worthy plays, that will surely electrify the crowd.
