NBA Commissioner Adam Silver 'jealous of the Champions League'

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says he is "jealous of Champions League" and the "religious" passion European fans have for football.

Silver has said he would like to add a European-based team to the NBA, saying "it is something we ultimately want to do, but a lot of work needs to be done".

Silver took over as the NBA commissioner in February 2014, after serving in a number of posts within the organisation over the previous 22 years.
