With no lockout worries this year the NBA will once again be traveling to Europe in the preseason, one of the highlighted match-ups this go round will be the Dallas Mavericks vs Alba Berlin from the O2 arena in Berlin. To my knowledge it will be the first time an NBA side has gone against a Bundesliga team, and the first time they've competed in Germany (could be wrong on this.)

edit: I was wrong on both counts, there have been a few exhibitions against other European sides in Germany, and the Seattle Sonics took on BBV Hagen in the 80s.

Slightly off-topic, but the Dallas Mavericks are also planning to visit Spain and playing another European team. TBA status.

Dirk botched a fast break two handed jam. One for the hometown fans. Both parties just laughed it off. :)
