NBA And The Stars Of Tomorrow

The NBA has released its schedule for the 2007-08 season and the first thing that jumps out is the increased number of back-to-backs. With the league adding a 66th game to the season, most teams will have to play 16 sets of back-to-backs, with some unfortunate teams having 17. The good news is that no team will play 4 games in 5 nights (there are still 4 teams playing 3 games in 3 nights).

With the added game, the season will now be pushed back slightly, but there will still be some overlap with the NFL playoffs. The Christmas day game between Miami and Phoenix will take place on Saturday, December 22nd and opening night is October 30th.

This news comes just days after it was announced that all tickets for next year’s All-Star Game in New Orleans would be $50 or less.

The complete schedules for all teams are linked below (note: these schedules are subject to change).

My name is Matt. I am a Post-Graduate student studying for my Masters Degree in Secondary Education with a focus in History and Politics. I also happen to be a huge basketball fan and have been since before I can remember. Growing up, the NBA was all I could talk about and all that could be seen on my television screen at any given moment.

I started this blog as a means to discuss what is happening within the world of basketball and how it relates to our society both as sports fans and as citizens of the world. I look forward to discussing the sport with everyone out there and hope that you can learn something from it!

The NBA Development League begins its 12th season tonight and it is a perfect time to reflect on what the league has become and what it could be.

For those who are unfamiliar with the NBA’s version of a farm system, the D-League is an official minor league consisting of 16 teams owned either by the NBA or an affiliated team. The Dallas Mavericks own both the Texas Legends and Maine Red Claws while the Spurs, Celtics, Rockets and Nets each have their own franchise as well. Some franchises are independent while others operate in conjunction with other organizations.

I would like to see more teams fully embrace their D-League affiliate to develop talent and create a better fan experience for all involved. While I can’t speak for every D-League coach, I am sure there are many who would love to have more influence from their parent club in terms of player development and strategy. Many coaches rely solely on video footage to evaluate players for their squad but this can only tell you so much about a player’s fit within a given system or his ability to adapt on the fly. There is nothing wrong with using technology to scout talent but if the goal is to develop prospects that are able to thrive at the next level, then having someone from the NBA team’s coaching staff oversee workouts

The newly minted NBA rookie class of 2014-15 has been performing at a high level of play. The hype surrounding the top two picks, Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker was warranted, as both players have been playing well.

It is not just the rookies that have been playing well though, as the second year players are pushing them for supremacy in their class. Some second year players have taken leaps from last season that has helped their teams tremendously.

Let us take a look at some of the early leaders for the Rookie of the Year award. We will be looking at rookies who are contributors to their team and not just players who are just getting minutes due to injuries or trades.

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article on how the San Antonio Spurs have become one of the most successful franchises in sports by employing a “player development system” that has been unmatched by any other team. In the article, I focused on how the Spurs have built the team around a handful of key players over the last decade, while selecting and developing players who were later traded to get those key players. After reading this article, many people asked me why I did not mention the fact that the Spurs have also had one of the best drafting records in recent history. For this reason, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at how well each NBA franchise has performed in terms of acquiring talent outside of free agency or trades. So without further ado, here are the top 10 draft picks from 2010-2016:

1) LeBron James

2) Kevin Durant

3) Kyrie Irving

4) Anthony Davis

5) Damian Lillard

6) Derrick Rose

7) Kawhi Leonard

8) Karl-Anthony Towns

9) Kristaps Porzingis

10) Andrew Wiggins

The NBA is a star driven league and has been for many years. The biggest stars in the league are the ones who sell the most merchandise, get the most endorsements, and attract the most viewers. This has been a part of the NBA since its inception, but it is more prominent now than ever before.

Teams that have players that can sell their product outside of basketball move up in draft order and have more money to spend on free agents. And when an NBA team has the chance to sign a player like LeBron James or Kobe Bryant, they will do whatever it takes to get them. These players are known as “superstars.”

The problem with this system is that it creates an imbalance in the league. Teams that have these superstars are almost always at the top of their conference and teams that do not, are usually near the bottom of their conference. This is because these players attract other good players to play with them and teams with less talent cannot compete with these super teams.

The NBA should abolish this system in favor of one that does not reward teams for simply having a superstar player on their roster. This can be done by changing how players are paid, and how much money each team gets from revenue sharing.

When it comes to the NBA’s League Pass, there are several different ways to purchase a subscription. The first is through a cable or satellite provider, which is the most expensive way, but also the most convenient. You can buy a single-team or full-season package for an average of $160. The second way is a broadband package that allows you to watch games on your computer or mobile device. This will cost you around $60 for the season and includes all of the same features as a full-season cable subscription, including DVR functionality and live streaming of games.

The third option is an audio package for those who want to listen to their favorite teams’ radio broadcasts. This costs about $10 and allows you to listen to every game from start to finish on your mobile device or computer.

The fourth option is a mobile package that allows you to watch up to three live games on any mobile device. This costs around $40 and gives you access only to broadcast games (i.e., no TNT/ESPN/ABC contests).

The final way to purchase a League Pass subscription is through Amazon Prime Video, which offers all of the same features as other providers at no additional cost if you are already an Amazon Prime member.
