In the NBA, you don’t always see Premier League super-fans, but Josh Richardson of Dallas Mavericks is a die-hard Arsenal supporter, as he illustrated in a recent interview.
For most of the campaign to date, Arsenal has undergone a torrid time, but the victory over Chelsea on Boxing Day brought with it suggestions of better things on the horizon under Mikel Arteta.
With the Gunners previously needing to be considered in a relegation battle, they showed that with the outstanding victory over the Blues, they can still go toe-to-toe with the big boys.
Josh Richardson, a shooting guard for NBA side Dallas Mavericks, is one man who is pleased with the outcome.
Last night, the Mavericks beat the LA Clippers at Staples Center, with Richardson scoring 21 points. He seemed just as happy with the fact that his favorite Arsenal had defeated Chelsea after the game as he was with his own team’s win!
The Premier League has a global fan base, clubs like Arsenal in particular, so when a Gunners fan shows himself in the states, it should be no surprise.
