1) There are two international business structures in the article above. One is International Franchises and the other is Offshoring.
International Franchises try to achieve an international presence by authorizing a group or an individual to sell its good or services. NBA had partnered up with Chinese partners to give out services in Beijing,China.
Offshoring is the relocation of a company’s operations to another country. Just as NBA has relocated its services to China.

2) I think this will be a huge benefit for NBA because there company will be known to a wider audience. They also now might have players coming in from China to play in their league since they are connected now. Another benefit NBA will get is that China will call NBA teams over to play pre-season games.

Basketball Coach Jim Larranaga credits Miami Heat's Chris Bosh for Hurricanes dream season

Basketball Coach Jim Larranaga credits Miami Heat's Chris Bosh for Hurricanes dream season | Play Big, Play Ball ! |

Larranaga recently told a story about how Miami Heat star, and former Georgia Tech player, Chris Bosh helped motivate the team prior to Larranaga's first season in Coral Gables. The coach reminisced about a summer day in 2011 when Bosh played pick-up with the 'Canes. After the game, Larranaga asked the All-Star for his assessment. Bosh said Miami's players weren't running the floor or working hard:


"I asked [Bosh] if he would mind sharing that with the team. This was right after [the Heat] had lost in the world championship to Dallas. One day with the whole team in the weight room lifting, I asked him to say a few words. He started out with an emotional message. It was the best five-minute talk I've ever heard. He talked about how disappointed he was that he didn't play better in Game 6 and how disappointed he was that they didn't win the world championship and he didn't want to live with that kind of regret and that he was killing himself during that offseason so that the Miami Heat could win the world championship.


"He said, 'You guys don't work hard enough. You don't deserve the success you'd like to have. You can't compete at the highest level of college basketball with the effort that you're giving.' It was just music to my ears because that was the message we were trying to deliver. Coming from Chris Bosh, it meant a whole lot to the team."
