Ways to know if the NBA game you’re watching is taking place in the Midwest

  1. No dramatic lighting. Newer and flashier big-city arenas dim the lights in the stands and focus stage-like lighting on the floor only. Midwestern arenas flood light everywhere, making it look like a high school gym.
  2. La Cucaracha plays over the loudspeakers. Not so many Hispanics in the Midwest who might find it stereotypical and/or offensive.
  3. Ads for local businesses like Tire Barn, instead of companies like Toyota and Coke.
  4. The home team plays more than one white guy at a time.
  5. You can still see the individual floorboards. Extra points if you’re watching a game in Minnesota, which still has parquet floors.
  6. Traditional stadium rock rules all.
