When does the NBA Season start?
Revered around the world, the NBA is the top division of professional basketball in America and the season ending playoffs are notoriously frenetic. The growth in popularity of basketball within Australia in recent years has been remarkable and the audiences that tune in for NBA fixtures are comparable to some of the biggest domestic sporting events on the calendar.
Due to the restrictions imposed by COVID 19, the NBA has resumed in a bio-secure bubble, behind closed doors in Florida on Friday July 31st, 2020.
When are the NBA Playoffs?
Few events on the sporting schedule can compete with the atmosphere created at NBA play-off games. With teams vying for glory, in front of passionate home crowds, the NBA play-offs are a spectacle like no other.
