London game will allow Swedish fans a chance to see Jerebko play in person

I must admit that while I quickly latched onto the Big Ben link between the Detroit Pistons and London, England, where the team will play a regular-season game Jan. 17 against the New York Knicks, I failed to see the other big connection.

Jonas Jerebko, all around bad ass and the only Swede in the NBA, is about to play a hell of a lot closer to home. Like more than 2,000 miles closer as the crow flies.

So let's say you're a Jerebko fan and you want to go to the game. You're in luck, roundtrip airfare is only going to set you back around $238 bucks. But what if you have a fear of flying? Don't worry, I've got you covered.

This route has tolls. This route includes a ferry. This route includes a car transport. This route crosses through multiple countries. This route has restricted usage or private roads.
