London is going through a bit of basketball fever this week as the Denver Nuggets and Indiana Pacers get ready to face off in The O2 tomorrow.

Yesterday, the Nuggets visited with Arsenal Football Club as part of the festivities and the results were as amazing as one would expect.

The Mile High City basketball team toured Emirates Stadium and even managed to snag some jerseys for themselves and some autographs.

Getting that much athletic talent in the same building even led to some highlights as the Arsenal players married their love for football with the spectacular plays that dominate hoops.

They brought out a basketball goal onto their practice field along with a trampoline and pumped out some sick trick shots.

Alex Iwobi was dealing as the passer on some crazy alley-oops that dazzled some of the local press.He delivered some rainbow flicks for monstrous jams, the entire spectacle makes you wish that a sport where this was commonplace actually existed.

Premier League and the NBA are amazing in their own rights but marrying the two is something that fans might not know that they needed until they see it first hand.

In the meantime, they can catch the Pacers and Nuggets during the NBA’s Global Games London for a rare peek at regular season action in person.

Players may not use trampolines, but there undoubtedly be a few jaw-dropping highlights.
