A few weeks ago, the Los Angeles Lakers won the NBA title but the organization is already looking forward to next season. The one that just ended was a championship marked by Covid-19 that forced the NBA to play the postseason in the Orlando bubble. Adam Silver would like to play at least 82 games with an audience in the arena, which now honestly seems to be very complicated. For this reason, though. The leaders of the NBA are planning to start the new season two months later than usual.
NBA starts on Christmas
Adam Silver’s idea, according to several US sources, is to start the new season on December 22nd. Usually, the NBA opens its doors in October, but this year it would be impossible, precisely because the championship ended a few days ago. With the new season starting in December, the intention is to finish it close to the next Olympic Games. A choice that would allow fans to return to the arenas, always allowing Covid-19, but also the franchises themselves to collect 500 million dollars more than in the past. Next Friday, we will start discussing this idea, but the chances are very high that the NBA will start right in the Christmas period.
