France is the top market in the world for N-B-A merchandise sales. That’s one of the reasons the Milwaukee Bucks are playing the Charlotte Hornets in Paris Friday. Only the United Kingdom has more league pass subscribers and seven games are broadcast in France each week. Friday’s game tips off at 2:00 P-M Milwaukee time, but that’s 9:00 P-M in Paris. It will be the 92nd game played in Europe, although most have been exhibitions.
