Pistons to face Knicks in international game (update: in London)

The Pistons’ 2012-13 schedule includes a Jan. 17 international game against the Knicks. Both teams have at least three days off before and after the game, so that leaves enough time to get practically anywhere in the world. Where would you like to see the Pistons play?

On the downside, it counts as a Detroit home game, so The Palace will host just 40 games this season.

Update: in London

Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News:

Lin and the Rockets will visit the Knicks on Dec. 17 and a month later, the Knicks will take on the Pistons in London.

MVP Ultimate Basketball (a British site):

The New York Knicks are set to play the Detroit Pistons in London in a regular season game at The 02 Arena, league sources have told MVP.

    I’m from Italy so obviously my answer would be Italy, but since we’re already hosting a Boston Celtics preseason game in October this would eliminate us from the potential candidates to host this game.
     
    I believe the game is going to be played in London or Manchester (London already lost last year’s games because of the work stoppage so this could be a made up for that).
     
    Another potential candidate could be Bilbao in Spain since I’ve heard there were plans to host an NBA game there. Then again, Spain is already hosting a preseason game itself next fall so probably not.
    Or maybe Australia since I’ve heard some rumors about playing a regular season game down there in the next few years.
     
    I’m still going to say London though.
     
    We’ll see.

    I would prefer Paris because I’m French but, from what I’ve heard, it will be in London.

    How about actually playing a game in Detroit too?
    That’d be cool.
    Other than that I’d say Sweden for Jerebko

      +1.  I live on the West side.  It takes me an hour no traffic to get to the Palace.

    It should be Las Vegas, it would give me another reason to go back there this year.
    But honey I have season tickets and the Pistons are having a “home” game there.  I have to go.  LOL

    I1m from Brazil, so I’d like it to be in São Paulo or Rio de Janeiro. Being realistic, though, I’d say that London, Paris, Sydney, they all make sense.
