Oct 5 Exxon Mobil Corp said it has
entered a multi-year agreement with the National Basketball
Association (NBA) to be its official marketing partner in the
United States and China.
The partnership, which aims to market Exxon's Mobil 1 motor
oil, is one of the first tie-ups between the flagship brand and
a major sports other than motor racing.
