Adam Silver speaks of shortening the NBA season to less than 82 games

The NBA’s 82-game season has been taking place from 1967-68, but it will be highlighted soon, with the flames burning brightly by Commissioner Adam Silver.

Silver is pushing for mid-season competition to generate more interest and more revenue. The competition will reduce climate.

But it looks like he could be in danger of lowering the season by sticking to a promotional game before the game.

“I realize that this can be a constant source of frustration for people to take what I have said, and try to send a different message,” Silver told Yahoo Sports at the Boys and Girls Club in San Francisco recently. “But I want to make sure people understand like any other business, we’re just thinking about new things. And we’re listening to our fans.”

With a chicken or an egg? The debate has been very confusing and it is hard to say if fans believe that most games are meaningless or if team players and like 82 games are too much.

Messages from many affiliates seem to be inconsistent, so they are able to send messages to fans who are also editable and audible in Twittersphere. There is no doubt that some regular games mean more than others, but one wonders if the NBA can do a better job with its messages and timely packing.

“The last thing I want to say is that we do not appreciate our modern era, it is very important,” Silver said. “The clubs are very concerned about the opportunity to go to court at home, and people will not be able to play NBA basketball.”

Although the in-season competition is yet to be completed, have fans taken this as a sign that the league is not respecting its regular season?

Silver did really well, if the mid-season competition took place: Fans should be able to visit once a year from each player because the game schedule does not change.

“If we change the schedule, we make sure each team plays once,” Silver said. “I think this is very important. Everyone wants to see, even if it is a trip across the country, that wherever a player is on a team that plays in another conference, they have the opportunity to see that player once.”

They want to create new traditions, but this takes time; the most accurate indicator of success would be TV money.

“And the question is, can this really spark fanaticism? If there are other games that are more interesting this season, and the guys feel they are playing? Silver said.

“And finally I say I realize that [if] we do that, it is not a victory all night. Because the obvious question, whether it comes from the players or the fans will be, ‘What? Why should we assume that this is significant? Playing a competitive game? ‘ My answer would be, ‘I feel that way.’ But I think we can create new traditions, obviously, things change over time. So that’s something I’m looking forward to right now. “

With the additions to sports science and Silver’s technical know-how, modern players have a lot more advantages than previous generations: better mobility and education, more rest and better recovery options.

Losing it is part of the NBA season to be a deliberate competition and racing game. It is woven into the fabric of the NBA for as long as anyone can remember. Players often have good health, youth and the knowledge that is encouraged in 82 game games, as well as knowing how to manage.

The prospect of getting rid of an object seems to be interfering with a very important thing.

“The fact that the teams are so focused on asset management and the players are resting, this sends a personal message,” Silver said. “And I say we’re paying attention to this, and we want to make sure that the amount of games we play doesn’t just happen because that’s what we’ve been doing for 50 years.”

Silver said it is “looking new” at things and it works differently. The tournament created some great matchups last year and kept the attention of many teams at the end of the season. He also changed the 2-3-2 NBA Finals set by his predecessor, the late David Stern, to redesign the 2-2-1-1-1 soon after taking office, starting in the 2014 NBA Finals.

Due to the playoffs affected by injuries to key players – which occur almost every year in the NBA – there has been a need to shorten the season. Silver thinks less than a year ago he answered the question, but it still goes on.

“Last season, because of the COVID crisis that disrupted the system, we played 72 games,” Silver said. “I thought it was a great solution for all the people who claim to reduce injuries by playing a few 10 games, which were quickly forgotten.”

There’s something the NBA can’t fix, either. The age of professional sports among young people means more pressure on players who are expected to be younger. AAU weekends consist of players who play several times a day, as well as day and night events from personal trainers, which are no longer the case.

Clocks on the human body do not begin magically when a person enters the NBA, and during recess, there are numerous videos of players running in gymnasiums across the country.

The phrase “basketball does not stop” exists for a number of reasons.

“Of course, if a player does not sit down, this reduces the chances of the player being injured, but there was no indication that a short season means that after a year, we will have fewer injuries,” Silver said. “
