Want a hometown basketball team to win? Build a new arena. That’s one of the reasons that basketball team Hapoel Jerusalem finally won its first championship game in 70 years, said Shalom Menora, one of the team owners. “The old arena was a high school gym with 2,500 seats,” said Menora.
The basketball face off between Maccabi Te Aviv and Hapoel Jerusalem is a clash between Old Money Nation and Start-up Nation.
