    Default OT: Tibetan Basketball

    A fun read .... monks, nomads, factory workers. These folks are high (pun intended) on basketball

    A large contingency of Ritomans—nomads, monks, and Norlha employees—drove to Hezuo, where fans of both teams squeezed into the tiny, high-ceilinged gym, stuffing it beyond capacity. Fans bled onto the court; some climbed up the basket supports. Norlha wore its standard blue jerseys; Khata wore red. On the walls behind the baskets hung billboard-size posters of Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.
    It’s a long read .... enjoy!
