29 Basketball Innovations to Fuel NBA Fever

— October 31, 2008 — Lifestyle
Do you have NBA fever? If so, you'll love the awesome basketball innovations featured in the slideshow below.

We were pumped to find out that in 2010, the NBA All-Star game will take place in new Dallas Cowboys stadium!

It's incredible to see how one sport can inspire so many different things. Advertising companies have been able to use basketball to hype a range of products, from using NBA superstars as models, to using the NBA branding to hype appeal on runners.
