NBA boss Adam Silver returned during the NBA Finals for rumors of possible changes to the current NBA season format.
Reforming the NBA has been one of Adam Silver’s big goals since taking office in 2014. The new current plan is to change the format of 82 games by introducing a mid-season tournament.
The purpose of the maneuver is to create “a new tradition”, imposing “more competition». The success of the play-off tournament, the mini-elimination series between the 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th dates of each conference to enter the Playoffs, gives new wishes to the NBA chief.
“I want to make sure people understand that, like any other company, we are constantly thinking about innovation. And we listen to our fans. “People can not get enough of the NBA.”provides Adam Silver in columns of Yahoo Sport
If there is anything new, Silver promises that all teams will cross paths during the season – at home and away. I do not want to change the entire current format.
“It is of great importance. Even if it’s a nationwide trip, any team player playing in the next conference, fans should have the opportunity to see it at least once. » he explained.
It remains to be seen whether the franchises and players represented by Players Association President CJ McCollum will approve such changes.
