The National Basketball Players Association released a statement on November 6th, stating the following:

“The Board of Player Representatives of the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) has tentatively approved a start date of December 22, 2020 for the 2020-2021 NBA season and a 72-game schedule. Additional details remain to be negotiated and the NBPA is confident that the parties will reach agreement on these remaining issues relevant to the upcoming season.”

In what was an unprecedented 2020 NBA season, here are some highlights for you as a quick recap before the upcoming season start:

Also, along with the NBPA, we wish a very happy Veteran’s Day to all veterans and active military personnel out there. Thank you so much for your service!
