In the last stop of the Pre-Season NBA Global games, the Brooklyn Nets will take on the Sacramento Kings on Oct. 15th at The MasterCard Center in Beijing. Greg Pierce, Portables Manager at Robbins Sports Surfaces, arrived in Beijing on October 9th to oversee the installation of the new portable floor that will be used for the game. The new floor, a Robbins All Star Plus portable, was shipped to Beijing from the manufacturing plant in Ishpeming, MI. The floor was built entirely in the US plant, with the exception of the graphic decals and finish which were applied onsite in Beijing.
This is the 10th year China has participated in the NBA Global Games. Robbins was onsite both last year and this year to help improve the coordination and efficiency of the setup and installation of the floor. John Puening, Manager of Product R&D, traveled to the Philippines and Taiwan last year to oversee the installation. John was able to experience first-hand the excitement and devotion from loyal NBA fans on a global level “I was extremely proud to represent Robbins in helping the NBA bring their games to markets that don’t always get to experience the games live. International fans love the NBA and the excitement is really great to see.”
We wish both the Brooklyn Nets and Sacramento Kings great luck in the upcoming game, and to all of the NBA teams throughout the 2014-15 season!
