The 2015-2016 NBA season will go down as one of the greatest seasons in NBA history. From the Warriors winning 73 games, to the Cavilers winning their first NBA championship, to Kobe scoring 60 points in his final game. Let’s not forget the Spurs winning 67 games, Paul George retuning to superstar level, Curry become the first unanimous MVP in NBA history, and one of the greatest NBA Finals of all-time. A game 7 thriller that restored hope to one city (Cleveland) and left another city (Oakland) searching for answers. So many memorable moments, highlights, and storyline from the 2015-16 NBA season.
The NBA continues to position itself as one of top leagues in the world. It’s more buzz and excitement surrounding the game, that hasn’t been seen since Jordan took over the NBA. A new TV deal worth $24 billion over 9 years, a higher salary cap, new marketable stars. It’s more foreign players on an NBA roster than at any point in NBA history. http://www.nba.com/2015/news/10/27/nba-rosters-feature-100-international-players/
The growth of the NBA is accelerating at a rapid pace and that has a great deal to do with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver. His vision, willingness to negotiate, and passion for the game has the NBA reaching historic heights. It’s no better time to be a basketball fan that right now.
