I am writing in response to the article about Georgia Highlands College students visiting China and the influence of the NBA in the country. I do not believe the National Basketball Association is strictly an American organization. Basketball is a culture. Every day basketball is becoming more of a global sport and it’s the number one team sport in China. In the article the writer states, “This expanded the mindset of the Chinese people towards Americans.” How can America be spreading influence into China if it is already the top played team sport?
