In Britain, over the death of the American basketball player. I would think the vast majority of britains will never have heard of him, or have any interest in the sport.
It is getting as much news over here as the 75 anniversary of auschwiz or the start of brexit week.

Must admit its a very sad and tragic story but I have never heard of him so RIP but personally I listened when it was first reported then switched off.

I'd say only a minority of sports fans have never heard of him as opposed to the majority of citizens having heard of Brexit or Auschwitz if only that he was a basketball player without knowing of his actual career achievements.

His career stats are legionary & although allegedly on one occasion he was less than that of an upstanding citizen, his volunteer work since in the eyes of many has atoned for it should it have been needed.
