Not nearly as much as they care about the interest here. Bottom line is, imo, there is less incentive to send the players. If the games were in NA I don't think we're even discussing this right now. Gary's picking the right spot to fight this battle, and if he gets what he wants than good for him.
Ever thought that that maybe the reason NHL is at it's current position so to speak? NBA definitely cares more about international fans.
